Karen Hecht, PhD

Scientific Affairs Manager at AstaReal Inc.

Sarah has been able to take complex technical concepts and distill them into visual stories that are accessible and engaging.
AstaReal's technical marketing team has had the pleasure of working with Sarah for 2 years now to produce sell sheets, infographics, and promotional materials that have been featured in conferences, trade expos, websites, and customer meetings in both hard copy and digital formats. Sarah's greatest strength is her ability to synthesize information and take an active role in the design process. She has a good sense of design, is willing and able to take on challenging concepts, and can fill in the blanks when it comes to translating a project into the visual space. While we've come to know Sarah as a good decision maker with an eye that we trust, we also recognize her as an attentive colleague who incorporates feedback well. The quality of her work, her agility in turning work around, and her strong communication skills have allowed her to work successfully with AstaReal not just in the USA, but also with our global teams in Asia and Europe as well. We look forward to continuing to work with Sarah and would recommend her highly as a "triple threat" graphic design professional who is a critical thinker, a creative designer, and a good communicator.

Intimacy Therapist & Connection Facilitator

As a therapist, I need my site to create a feeling of trust with a prospective client.  And trust is a gut level thing, especially when it comes to looking for the right counselor.  Sarah gets that intimately. During the summer and fall of 2019 she worked to refine the branding and imagery on my site.  My previous designer had done a strong job on the functionality of my web pages. But my virtual presence didn’t feel beautiful, polished or streamlined.  Sarah had this way of looking at my site, envisioning vastly more elegant versions of the current design and making suggestions for the redesign. After our first consultation, I was hooked. She created the most professional and artistic web pages I have ever had the joy of attaching to my work.  I now feel confident that when people looking for therapy on-line find my site, they will encounter a beautiful aesthetic through the images, a strong presentation through the layout of the copy and an overall trustworthy representation of my professional services. Thank you Sarah for making my website beautiful!

I love working with Sarah! Her work to create and finalize our logo was succinct and spot on. She's a great listener, brings plenty of creativity to any project, and is very reliable and responsive to deadlines and emergent needs. She's a gem.

We are delighted by the logo that Sarah developed for us in a short time on a small budget.  We thought we'd have to settle for something mediocre given the restraints of working with a school district budget, but that was not the case.  Sarah listened carefully and intuitively so that our new logo represents us perfectly.

Working with Sarah was an all-around excellent experience. I needed a new logo and she created the perfect design for me and my business. She really took the time to listen and understand my vision.  She's a fantastic artist and also gave me opportunity to give feedback throughout the design period. I love my logo and so does everyone who sees it. I can't recommend Sarah and Fruition Design highly enough.

Sarah has done a ton of amazing work for me over the years, from posters to flyers to cards to web work. She is a joy to work with, listens well to the heart of your project, and then exceeds expectations with her delivery. I highly recommend her to you, as I have for many others.

Sarah is a joy to work with. Her work is outstanding and I find her incredibly patient and organized. As the director of a small trade organization, I'm crazy busy and am creating new content for so many projects. It takes a talented designer like Sarah to engage with me and make sure we're going in the right direction every time. She does that and then some!

Sarah is so responsive to work with, she has a great positive attitude and has a skill for listening for what needs to be included and then making it work creatively. This skill is so key when you are trying to get someone to communicate to the public for you.

Fruition Design allows us as business consultants to offer marketing and advertising services with professional graphic designs. We are able to provide a total solution due to her ability to take some words and concepts and turn them into a banner ad or storefront signage that "pops"!
