Hi, hello and thanking thee for checking out my website!
I am Sarah Allen, a 24 year old creative who graduated in 2015 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, Majoring in Graphic Design from Whitecliffe. I returned to study a Grad Diploma in Business and Marketing at AUT.
I enjoy being involved in many different areas of creative projects and seeing the design process and stragtegy out from beginning to end. I would describe myself as someone who "likes to have a finger in every pie" as they say. I definitely enjoy being challenged and constantly expanding my creative skill set.
In July 2013, I took the opportunity to be “chief sidekick” to Julia Atkinson of Studio Home. I took on many roles at Studio Home including editorial, design, curation, project planning, photography, liaising with brands and looking for angles and strategy around promotion and communication. I also ran a feature called REAL WORLD, where I found, shot and interviewed inspiring creative types from the curiosity of a design student. I sat down with Emma Kaniuk of AKIN, Frankie Ratford of The Design Kids, Tim Webber of Tim Webber Design and Alexandra Dodds.
In 2015, I was one of the founding members of the DINZ Student Council, where myself and 10 other students from different institutions across New Zealand, work alongside Cathy Veninga to bridge the gap between creative students and graduates and the industry.
