Sarah Rowe

Sarah
Graphic Designer

Sarah Rowe

Graphic Designer

Sarah can create something out of nothing. She is our chief creator of new looks and has a flair for coming up with fresh concepts and bright ideas. When a client gives her a brief, she instinctively comes up with a creative design.

When there isn't a brief, she uses her sixth sense to still come up with a dazzling design. Sarah spends most of her time away from work in the great outdoors, dinghy sailing. When she tires of that, she turns her hand (and feet) to skiing, rollerblading and the odd triathlon thrown in for good measure.
