SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF DESIGN
Sarah Noll always knew she would end up doing something artistic, but wasn’t sure how to apply her obsession with details and need to exercise both sides of her brain until she became a Communications Designer at Syracuse University. Her true loves are design and problem solving, and she believes you should never have one without the other. Sarah designs optimistically, with a specific, well-researched audience in mind but a hope to engage anyone across the world. At Syracuse she has worked to start and grow her chapter of AIGA and is pursuing a minor in Art History. She enjoys 80s fashion, 90s movies, 2000s music, dance parties, nice food, and dogs from honestly any decade.
