What Others Are Saying

Home / Testimonials
I am happy to say in print what I will tell anyone in person. If you need someone with an artist’s eye and an unbeatable work ethic...Hire her! Her work speaks for itself and it will say good things about you.

-Congressman Gil Gutknecht, MN01 (1995-2006)

Sarah Derrick can literally do it all. I had the pleasure of meeting her when she was the graphic designer for the U.S. Association of Former Members of Congress and I was the organization's communications director. Sarah was able to give us a new identity and overall look for our annual Statesmanship Awards event, creating a treatment that was used for all of the graphic communications. I was so impressed with her work, that when I became a full time author there was no other designer I would trust to design my website than Sarah. Not only did she listen to my needs, but used her professional judgement to advise me the best way to create an online presence. She did that and more! To my delight, Sarah worked with me throughout the process, offering suggestions and samples for my new web site that I could see, until the final product was created. Not only did she do all the design work, she was kind enough to contact the host company making the entire process a pleasure. If you are looking for an amazing professional, and a great person to boot, I would highly recommend Sarah. You will be very happy you chose someone with Sarah's passion, talent and commitment to making your project a success!

Our team has worked with Sarah on numerous projects over the last three years. She has helped us create newsletters, brochures, invitations and an annual resource guide. Sarah is always professional, timely, friendly and full of great ideas. No matter how challenging the project is, or how short the deadline, Sarah finds a way to make it work and always exceeds our expectations. I happily refer her to anyone looking to work with a great designer and a wonderful team player.

-Tom Dripps, Davies Printing

The U.S. Association of Former Members of Congress has relied on Sarah Derrick for its graphic design needs since 2004. These projects have included marketing materials, brochures for individual programs, newsletters to our members, signage, etc. We have found Ms. Derrick to be a consummate professional who works very well under tight deadlines. More importantly, she is a great pleasure to work with, can quickly and accurately translate the vision we communicate to her into actual marketing materials, and delivers the final product on time and often under budget. Her work product is used to communicate our message to current Members of Congress, former Members of Congress, visiting foreign dignitaries, potential sponsors, and partnering organizations. I am so confident in her abilities that myself, and my family members, have worked with her on personal projects that required the creativity and technical know-how of a graphic designer.
