Sally Ann Strand
Creative & visual partner for a unique, human brand
I’ve had the great fortune to partner closely with marketing directors, inspired writers and business professionals to create unique, cohesive and human brands. Helping to develop and design insightful, creative strategies that come from a big picture vantage point, paired with attention to detail.
I like to think of myself as a visual interpreter, once I get a feel for a client’s vision, my role in the process is to capture the eye, instill the first impression, and move the eye/action to inform. Whether that’s from various points in a document, a website or across multiple platforms. From the very beginning of your brand development, or blossoming from wherever you are in brand development — I can meet you where you are.

I designed, produced and project managed a website that radically changed the way a community college interacted with its students, faculty and the public.
