“Goddamnit, I love this city.”
Sarah Lawrence is a freelance graphic designer, illustrator, and strategist working in Atlanta, Georgia. After graduating with a BFA in graphic design from the University of Georgia, she returned home to Atlanta to work for Paste Magazine, before eventually going out on her own.
When asked, “What is your inspiration?” many creatives cite the work of visionaries that came before them, their contemporaries, or eras and cultures throughout history. For Sarah, it is these sources but even more so, her muse is her home—the city of Atlanta. And here, she’s become known for her ability to call attention to what makes a place special.
It’s clear in the work she selects and the projects she takes on where her heart is (Atlanta), what her passions are (civic rights, food), and what drives her (a particular intersection of topic and challenge). Sarah’s work is a celebration of collaboration and inclusivity—and often, it’s a two way conversation between herself and everybody that encounters her work.
