I am a freelance designer & animator, available for both large and small projects. I am currently based in Melbourne, Australia, but regularly work with clients both interstate and internationally.

Clients & studios I have worked with include the Department of Transport (Victoria), ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation), Schweppes, Lifelounge, McCann Melbourne, Concep, RMIT University, Circus Oz, ACMI, Lonely Planet, Billy Blue College of Design and more.

I also work with my partner Lachlan on animation & interactive projects, through Faux Pas Creative Studios.

In the past I ran the ANIMATION CLUB!!! monthly event, Secret Handshake. I used to do standup comedy (badly) and run a comedy room in Sydney (less badly).
I was in an amateur circus group at uni and also once envisioned a life in forensic medicine – or as an astronaut.

Sarah did a phenomenal job in scoping the project from the brief provided and set expectations upfront.

Sarah completed the project beyond all my expectations relative to budget, timeframe and quality of finish. She added value where appropriate in her areas of expertise and the proof is in the wonderful site she created for the world to interact with and experience. Outstanding work and recommended at the highest level.
