Developer, designer, and purveyor of outdoor adventures

Sarai Pegram

My passion for design started 10 years ago in high school, when I thought yearbook class would be just another elective. I fell further in love with design in college at UNC Chapel Hill, when I found myself procrastiworking on websites, blogs, and flyers to promote my extracurricular activities. I started teaching myself frontend development as a way to modify blog templates and websites. After college, I got my start as a professional designer in Sarasota, FL before relocating to NYC.

My main gig is at Macmillan Publishers, where as the only designer/developer in my position, I have the privilege of taking full creative direction of all of my projects. I design and develop websites, landing pages, internal tools, and serve as the resident Wordpress expert. In my spare time, I take on clients as a freelancer. Please check out my portfolio for a selected sampling of my work.

I believe that the best design is one that disappears into its function, which is why my designs are clean, simple, user-focused, and dynamic. Good design constantly changes to meet the user's evolving needs—a designer's work is never completely finished.

When I'm not designing, I'm often hiking, inline skating, training for a marathon, or planning my next travel destination, which will be sure to include a brewery tour.

Please get in contact with me if you'd like to work together or just say hello.
