Meet the team

Sarah McLennan

Creative Director

Sarah is the brainchild of concept development, overseeing all design and creative work completed in the studio. She has managed and delivered over 3000 projects at Malvolio.

We have a high client retention rate; it is Sarah’s warm personality and positive attitude that we attribute to our client’s confidence in Malvolio delivering their design projects. Clients wholly trust Sarah with their organisations; she treats each project as their most important investment, and gives our clients confidence in understanding their goals.

Communication is at the heart of Sarah’s processes. This is not only seen in her astute knowledge of design and the meaningful outcomes she delivers, but also in the rapport she has built with our client base.

Clients often report back on Sarah being patient, professional, creative and highly efficient. A testimonial from one of our clients: “What you have done is simply amazing. Your approach is the best service I have ever ever come across. On a benchmark of how to do business, I have learned a lot.” – Damien Keith, Views Cape Schanck.

Sarah’s qualifications include graduating with first class Honours in a Bachelor of Design (Communication Design) at Swinburne University in 2008. She is a professional member of the Australian Graphic Design Association.

In her spare time, she enjoys working on craft projects with her 4 young kids, maintaining a rainbow of flowers in her garden, and attending gigs.
