I'm Sara, a graphic designer, creative director, and photographer in Portland, OR. After working in-house for large corporations, family-owned businesses, Silicon Valley startups, and everything in between, I left the 9-to-5 life and opened Studio Sara Kraus in 2016. 

I love working with strong, driven women that need help creating striking brands that last. I specialize in what I call holistic branding — looking at your creative direction as a whole, and then crafting all the pieces into a modern, cohesive, and sustainable brand.

Most days you can find me listening to movie soundtracks at my desk with one of my three cats in my lap, drinking too much sparkling water. I love art museums, dark lipstick, gothic horror, and minimalism. I curse like a sailor and I'm working on a tattoo sleeve. When I’m not designing, I'm usually attempting to hike with my fiancé, remodeling our house, or working in my garden.

Success is fucking up on your own terms. —Guillermo del Toro
