Ms. Sarah Fahringer To All Instructors

My name is Sarah Fahringer, I grew up in Ohio where I started working as the graphic designer for a large church of 700 people and quickly became the Communication Arts Director overseeing all communication avenues which afforded me experience in working with print, branding, billboards, video, web design, clothing, building signage, and photography just to name a few! In the years I was in that position, I partnered with over 15 ministries and watched the church grow to over 3,000.
After having my two children and moving to different states to help with church plants, I continue to help churches grow in their communication (authentic branding and message)and work at the Thrive Vineyard in Palatine presently as the Communications Director/Graphic Designer and Worship Pastor. I have also worked with many Non-Profits as well as For-Profit companies, including designing a food label for Dignity Coconut Oil which is in stores nationwide.
Overall, I have a passion for high quality work with meaning and purpose, also known as 'form & function', working to eliminate stumbling blocks for people who normally wouldn't give something any value because of how it comes across.
Currently, I live in Elgin and have two boys (Hudson,age 18 & Simon, age 16).
I enjoy songwriting, music, funny movies, and spending time with my family.
I am looking forward to opening up a whole new world of possibilities for my students and their creativity!
