ABOUT ME

 

 

My name is Sara Festin and I freelance as a Graphic Designer. I have many years of experience in designing all types of marketing material for different companies. This is my big passion - I love helping other people and business grow! I want people to realise the importance of good marketing strategies. It's all in the details.

 

I'm originally from Östersund - a town in northern Sweden. Here I found my passion for movement (mostly dance) and art. Since 2015 I've found alot of new inspiration from NYC's big city vibes.

 

I'm fast, got an eye for details, have knowledge about alot and I'm a positive person :) Are you interested in getting help with something, want to know more about me or have any questions?
