Hello, I’m Sarah Luna
Los Angeles based designer & WordPress developer
Born in the Caribbean to an artist and a nurse, I grew up in sunny Los Angeles loving music and art. It’s no surprise that led to multiple degrees in both music business and graphic design where I graduated top of my class at Santa Monica College, Cum Laude from the University of Southern California, and became certified in Web Design and Development.
After 4 years working in the music biz, I decided to follow my heart and pursue Graphic and Web Design full time. Being able to communicate through art and technology is a gift that allows me to partner with businesses and create a visual language that tells their story. My aim is to craft compelling design solutions that connect with their audience, meet their goals, and elevate their brands.
Over the last 8 years I’ve built my expertise working as a freelance, contract, and in-house designer at companies like Disney, Yahoo, and Pearson Education. Additionally, I’ve worked with small businesses, non-profits, entrepreneurs, and bloggers—each experience expanding my perspective, enhancing my knowledge, and refining my skills.
A few random facts about me: I can play the acoustic guitar, love taking multiple dance breaks during my work day, and have adopted the palm tree as my mascot for it’s perfect representation of both Los Angeles and my Caribbean heritage.
“ I absolutely love what I do and am honored to partner with companies, big and small, in bringing their vision to life on the web. ”
