About Me


Sarah Florian

From the suburbs of Seattle, WA I grew up with a pencil in my hand and creative wit in my head. Computer graphics programs caught my eye at a young age as I was working with Photoshop 5.5 and Microsoft image composter. I was creating websites before the idea of mockups and wireframes were around and capturing video in middle school. I thrived under the umberpella of such big name corporantions such as Nintendo of American and Microsoft. Currently, I use latest versions of Abode's Creative Suite.

As a bright and detail creative indivdual I am ready to hit the work and help you design a creative masterpiece. I'm creative, detail oriented; yet I remain focused on the big picture. With great attention to detail and strong analytical skills, I have demonstrated ability to problem solve when working on complex graphic design projects. It is my dream to work in the creative industry, and chip at creative projects every day regardless of tough challenges.

In my spare time I preform to sweat and steel in stage combat as ground fighter and student under the Seattle Knights. I also take part in charity work dressed up as Star Wars character for the local Star Wars Costuming groups when I am not busy. Painting, costuming and gaming I also dabble in, and am sometimes at a local gym or at a martial arts.
