About

Hello, I’m Sarah Poe and this is my portfolio. I’m a graphic designer, web UX/UI designer, front-end developer, and writer based in Columbia, Maryland.

I recently received an M.A. in Publications Design with a Certificate in Digital Communications from the University of Baltimore. I also have a B.A. in Journalism from the Philip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland, College Park.

In my spare time, I enjoy running, hiking and traveling—especially to coastal locations. I’ve also been an active equestrian since childhood and enjoy the discipline of classical dressage.

I am available for freelance projects and part-time or contract work. Interested in working together? I’d love to hear from you!

What My Clients Say

Lauren Comish-Sumwalt / Former Maryland Dressage Association Vice President & Schooling Show Chairman

“The Maryland Dressage Association could not be happier with the website Sarah built us. Aside from the award winning and user friendly end result, the journey to the finished product was great. Sarah was amazingly patient and guided us as we (a board of 11) figured out what exactly we needed in the new site.

She got our site done quickly and has provided unparalleled support and training as we’ve learned to manage our content. I wish every acquisition could go this well!”

 Kritstin Mesa / Owner & Director, Patuxent Youth Ballet

“Dear Sarah, Thank you so much for the wonderful website you designed for my business, the Patuxent Youth Ballet. The videos, pictures and professional look of our site has increased our enrollment significantly. Before the website, potential customers would call and ask to visit our studio before enrolling.

Within a week of the website redesign, customers would call to enroll without hesitation and many comment on how beautiful our site is. I no longer need to advertise elsewhere to maintain my student base, a savings I am very grateful for.”

Aviva Nebisky / Owner of Horsepen Hill Farm

“I am so fortunate to have found Sarah Poe. She designed and implemented the perfect website for my horse boarding, teaching, judging business. Sarah listened to what I was looking for and made fantastic suggestions to improve the concept. You know it’s good when your neighbors stop you on the street to compliment your website!

My business has picked up because people are finding me on the search engines. Sarah is quick and efficient and delivers exactly what she promises when she promises (or earlier!). It doesn’t hurt that she is a wonderful photographer and loves horses! Thanks, Sarah for giving me the best website I could have hoped for.”
