Sarah Vogl

Owner

I'm a 25 year-old freelance designer and photographer located in Christiansburg, VA.

A jack of all trades and master of none, I wanna be your one-stop shop for all your creative needs. I can design the logo, website and everything in between that your business needs to succeed, then I can take photos of your team in action.

Collaboration has always been such a big priority for me that I made sure not to name my creative business after myself to leave room for the many brilliant people that I work with every day. Outsourcing creative work to other artists helps make my high expectations a reality so I can provide incredible quality at fair rates.

I started self-teaching myself graphic design and photography in 2012. I didn't start taking my talent for these things seriously until about three years ago, but today in 2019 I am currently working for myself full-time. My life experiences and my major in religious studies lead me time and time again to the idea that nothing in life is black and white. I like to think I’ve learned the importance of treading the middle-ground, and I apply these lessons to my life and my business every day.

So far in my professional creative work, I’ve learned that what I'm truly passionate about is providing high quality creative services to small, local businesses and brands. I want to make these services affordable and accessible to independent businesses and people who truly care about spreading good to the community through their products and services as much as I do.

When I'm not working on something photography or design related, I'm usually singing, playing piano, playing ukulele, gardening, hiking, reading or playing with my cats.
