Our studio has benefitted from the creative talents of Graphic and Website Designer Sarah de Roeck for 16 years now.
With her natural artistic flair, Sarah can devise and fulfil a concept to match any creative brief. She studied at Loughborough University School of Art and Design back in the 90s and always enjoyed Design and Technology at School. If she’s not working on a client’s rebrand or creating a new website at McConnells, you’ll be likely to find her at home in her garden, growing her own veg and planting up borders. If she could live anywhere in the world, (apart from South Derbyshire) it would probably be in North Devon, but we’re really glad she’s here.
