“It has always been my pleasure to work with Sarah! Having first worked together with her in an in-house corporate setting, I have since hired Sarah Shaak Creative to work with me on projects for my non-profit institution, relying on her design expertise to help me build and foster our independent school's brand identity over the past few years. Sarah has a unique artist/businessperson combo sensibility, and brings creativity and ingenuity to strategic tactics and mediums in the communications world. All-in, she understands broad concepts, yet conscientiously attends to the details, providing an end product that is on target, on point, and always on time. Sarah is easy to work with and when you hire her, you get far more than just a designer; you get a seasoned marketer who can deliver your message to consumers in a creative, deliberate way. To me, that's added value.”
— Beth Vander Vennet, CMO, St. Joseph’s Prep
“Sarah is great! She clearly laid out the scope of my project, her estimated timeline and cost. Her designs were unique and offered a range of possibilities. She very easily captured the revisions I requested and delivered my logo and website which kickstarted my professional visibility. Most importantly she has been accessible since my job was complete. If I have questions or issues she always responds in a timely manner and is so pleasant to work with. Having a personal connection with her clients sets her apart and I will absolutely use her again as my needs warrant.”
— Abby King, Writer
“We have been working with Sarah for years and her creativity and attention to detail amazes us every time. She took our company logo and transformed it into a masterpiece that we are proud to put on all of our products. We can always count on Sarah to create any point of purchase needed quickly, with stunning results.”
— John Whalen, President, Whalen's Greenhouses
"Over the years I have tasked Sarah with spearheading multiple branding campaigns for my restaurants, and the designs she has delivered have always exceeded my expectations. She has a keen eye for details, wonderful creativity, and her dedication to her work is exemplary. Sarah is able to take my scattered ideas and translate them into clear, beautiful images that not only capture my vision, but my brand. For Chabaa Thai, specifically, she transformed an old, mundane logo into a modern and lively image that illustrates the true essence of the restaurant. She also helped me seamlessly—from a visual perspective—tie my new market, Binto, to the Chabaa Thai brand. Sarah always listens patiently to my point of view, but isn’t shy about asserting her expertise, which definitely helps achieve a successful final design.The quality of her work for print, online, and various other applications shows how much time and effort she puts into all aspects of her projects. I truly appreciate Sarah’s friendly and easy-going disposition, which made my life a lot easier during “crunch time”; especially the fabrication process. Sarah is very resourceful, too. I like to say she is my one-stop shop for all things graphic design. I couldn’t recommend her more!"
— Chef Moon Krapugthong, Restaurant Owner
“We just launched a site using services provided by Sarah Shaak Creative, and the end result, as well as the process has been absolutely magnificent. 5 stars from me! Thank you, Sarah!... I am very excited to announce that we have finally launched a website for news and information about your truly! The site was designed, developed and sprinkled with love, by the folks over at Sarah Shaak Creative LLC. Not only is Sarah Shaak an amazing designer, she is a great friend of our family. I cant recommend her services enough. Thanks for the great work!”
— Wavy Gravy, Hippie Icon, Flower Geezer
“I couldn't be happier with the work that Sarah did for me and my photography business. Sarah designed our log as well as all of our branding and marketing material from scratch. I went into the whole re-brand process with absolutely no clear idea what I wanted in the end. Sarah basically held my hand throughout the concept process and talked with me to understand where I thought I wanted to go with our look, feel and aesthetic. She took a lot of time to not only understand ‘the look’ I wanted for my logo but she really wanted to understand what my business was all about and how she could help it to grow. Sarah brought ideas and designs to the table but she also helped to bring ideas out of me in order to include me in the design of the identity of the business! EVERYONE raves over the look of the logo and our marketing materials. Not only did Sarah create a new identity for my business but she designed our new website as well. She put just as much attention to detail (and my happiness ) into the design and function of the site as she did to the design of the logo. It couldn't have been a better experience. And the best part? I am already seeing an increase in bookings as well as an increase in the amount spent by our clients. The site and identity that Sarah designed has directly contributed to an increase in business for us. That's what it's all about. Simply put, hiring Sarah Shaak Creative has been the best decision we have made as a business in years! Thank you, Sarah.”
— Pete Malone, Owner & Photographer, Two17 Photo & Cinema
“Sarah took my old DIY Blogger site and its 6 years of content and transformed it into a stunningly beautiful brand that completely represents me and my business. From start to finish, Sarah was knowledgeable, professional and available. She listened to my design ideas and translated them into more than I could have imagined. Her expertise and input were delivered with a personal touch that made the entire process a joy. The finished product speaks for itself, and would not have been possible without Sarah.”
— Lara Heacock, Owner & Life Coach, Kind Over Matter
“I cannot say enough wonderful things about working with Sarah Shaak. I needed a complete overhaul of my existing website and Sarah helped to guide me through each step. She designed my logo as well as revamped the entire site. She was able to capture exactly the essence I hoped to portray. The process was simple and seamless and she is extraordinarily dependable and professional. I would give her a million stars if I was able to!”
— Erica Taxin Bleznak, Owner & Yoga Instructor, Mainline Shala
“Sarah has been such a pleasure to work with! She was always accessible and was patient with me, a total computer novice. She is extremely creative and is intuitive when it comes to creating the perfect website/brand. Now that we have wrapped up both of my projects, I will miss collaborating with her. It has been a wonderful experience.”
— Erica Rothkoff, Owner, Silly Pickles Kids
“I found Sarah through a recommendation. I was searching for someone to fill a need in graphic design and web development, and what I got was so much more than that. Sarah makes it a point to form a relationship with her clients, and get to know them inside and out in order to brand them in a way that is completely true and unique to who they are. Sarah didn’t just call to get an opinion on a design and then leave. She treated me like a friend that had a very genuine interest in watching my business grow and succeed into what it has today, and that is an extremely rare thing to find. Every person I know who needs any service that Sarah can offer will be personally recommended by me. I could not be happier with the results!”
— Marshall Scott, Photographer
