Hi! Welcome to Lessons in Design

This blog is run by me, Sarah Hubbard. I’m a Canadian graphic designer based on Vancouver Island. I’ve been designing for over 15 years and love to learn and experiment with design in creative ways and share what I know with other designers.

My Design Experience

I’ve worked as a designer in small cities like Parksville, BC as well as in large cities like Toronto, ON. I’ve worked at small start-up companies, small established agencies, and companies that grew from small to enormous in the time I worked with them.

At all these places I’ve worked I have had the opportunity to work on many different type of projects for many types of clients. I’ve had good jobs, bad jobs, worked with great mentors, and had horrible bosses.

In my career as a designer I’ve worked on brand and campaign developments, social media initiatives, lifestyle publication organization, editing and design, advertising, website design, video editing, print production, and branding.

My hopes are to take all this industry experience and share what I know on this blog.

YouTube Designing

I also currently run a graphic design YouTube channel where I create speed art, tutorials, and design industry content. My YouTube channel is a really fun project for me to experiment with different design techniques and software. It also lets me share my knowledge with other designers, which I really enjoy.
