Continuing our “Meet Three Box” series – meet Three Box Graphic Designer Sarah Sullivan. Sarah joined Three Box (then Lewis Public Relations) in December 2016. In her first few weeks with the team, she led design for our agency rebrand while also creating innovative design for our clients. In addition to graphic design, Sarah has chops in website design and development, email marketing and the creation of other marketing collateral. She’s a real rock star!
1. What is your favorite thing about working in design?
It’s the first hobby I was able to actually focus on for long periods of time. I never really loved school and not getting to choose what I could work on, so it was one of the first skills that sparked passion and long-term focus.
2. As a native Bostonian, what’s your favorite thing about Texas so far? What do you miss about home?
I don't like to be cold, and I don't miss shoveling snow. In Texas, half of the year is pool season. I definitely have days when I miss my family and good seafood (like lobster and oysters – yum!). But it's just a quick flight home.
3. So, you have a dog?
Yes, we have a 4-year-old Wheaten Terrier named Chewbacca. He’s our fur child!
4. What’s on your playlist?
During football season, I listen to a lot of Boston sports radio. I sometimes get a little home sick, so the Boston accents and commercials make those days easier.
5. Name some of your favorite hobbies outside of work.
I enjoy being with my family, traveling and photography – I seem to take photos of everything! I also love to cook, which is why I always look forward to preparing our big Thanksgiving meal.
6. If you could replace the four faces on Mt. Rushmore, who would you choose?
That’s a great question. I’d probably pick Jim Carrey, Stevie Nicks, Tom Brady and my dog, Chewbacca.
7. Finally, what’s something you love to do in Dallas?
My husband and I are big foodies (some of our favorites are Meddlesome Moth, Wheelhouse and Rodeo Goat), and we're always hanging out in the Design District.
In one word, here’s how Sarah’s Three Box teammates describe her:
Bold – Sarah isn’t afraid to step outside of her comfort zone and stretch the limit to create the best design. She’s always looking ahead to what’s next, what’s better, what’s the right fit.
Lively – Sarah brings a free spirit and New England spunk to Three Box. Her personality matches her design style – bold and adventurous.
Fearless – When Sarah joined the team, she was immediately tossed into the deep end of our rebrand and other client work. She tackled everything that was thrown at her and delivered incredible results!
Jazzy – Sarah brings a whole new level of energy and creativity to our team and our clients. It’s amazing to see how she can take a simple idea and turn it into something stunning, or as she would say, “jazzy!”
Pragmatic – Sarah has a powerful understanding of the intersection of good design and communications best practices. By combining design and classical marketing educations, she is equipped to speak to the “why” behind the design.
Vibrant – Sarah is energetic and vivacious. She’s always looking on the bright side of things!
