Hi, I'm Séjzelle, or Sage for short. I am a graphic designer currently working at a nonprofit government watchdog company called Open The Books. At this company, I lay out and design booklets, on top of website maintenance and social media marketing. In my experience, I have had the pleasure of creating marketing materials for clients such as Chevrolet and McDonald's (b2b).

 

I also do freelance work, which consists of a wide range of digital and print marketing materials. View my portfolio to learn more.
 

My mission is to work closely with clients to create vibrant, professional marketing materials to boost their brand's image and help inspire their clients. I am driven by my passion for graphic design and it shows in my work.

If you want to work together, simply fill in the form at the bottom of my site. I look forward to working with you!
