About Sarah


Zumo Arts was founded in 2000. With a degree in Spanish Literature from Indiana University, I had studied and worked in various regions of Spain throughout my life and was inspired by the beautiful art, architecture and landscapes of Europe. In 1998, after working as an ESL Teacher and a High School Spanish teacher in San Francisco, I was given the opportunity to intern for an inspiring Spanish speaking Graphic Artist, Adelaida Mejia. Artistic since a young child I was so inspired by Adelaida’s work and business practice that I decided to pursue a Graphic Design Certificate from UC Berkeley Extension. I completed the program “with distinction” in 2000. My first design jobs included working for two award-winning San Francisco architecture firms as a Marketing Manager. Through those experiences I learned the process and business of design. In the meantime I taught myself how to code and build websites that looked better than what was out there at the time.

As I gained an vast array of clients, I found an aptitude for helping small businesses hit the ground running with a memorable visual identity. I developed a specialty for creating logos and portfolio style websites with a variety of image galleries for creative professionals. My regular clients still include event planners, floral designers, photographers, jewelry designers, interior designers and retailers. The fact that visual artists have sought out my work gives me great satisfaction. I love to work with the beautiful images my clients bring to me, and enjoy collaborating with other artists.

With this experience I bring a wealth of ideas and ways for any business to express itself visually and functionally. I can represent an idea, a look, and a feeling into a website or printed materials that are as stylized as you want them to be. I work to create professional, functional and polished designs that reflected the client’s passion for their work. I continue to enjoy translating my clients’ inspirations into stunning, and sublime visual graphics that communicate excitement and beauty. That excitement is ultimately what your customers will respond to, aiding exponentially in the expanse of any business.

I personally follow the design process through to the production, coding and maintenance of a website, and the press check of a printed piece. The also enjoy the technical aspect of graphic design as it indulges my urge to problem solve, and I work hard to keep up with and perfect the use of the latest web functionalities.

With careful attention to detail, I offer my clients immediate and productive responses to their ideas and comments. I want you to be thrilled with the final product, and I want the people who see and use your materials to be equally excited about doing business with you!
