About Atlas Burning

“Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.” ~Chief Seattle

Hi, I am Atlas Burning. My name is Sarah Beard but I have many titles- Creative Director, Photographer, Designer Geek, Magician, Master Gardener, Kayaker, Naturalist… the list could go on and on.

For the past decade as a designer, I’ve enhanced my creative perspective and worked on projects that encompass every fence post on the design field - advertising, branding, identity, collateral, magazines, trade shows, POS displays, packaging and more. I’ve worked with a diverse group of clients- from health care facilities, political campaigns, to gourmet food and pet packaging.

Since I was big enough to carry an old AE1 around my neck, I have been drawn to the wonders of the natural world. When I’m not behind a Mac or a Canon, I can often be found kayaking Puget Sound, biking through our many wonderful trails, sipping a sensational PNW red wine or planning next seasons garden. I’ve recently completed horticulture training through the WSU Master Gardener program. Through this endeavor, I hope to further the urban farming movement by teaching gardening to members of my community. I feel that through sustainable practices, as well as green business decisions, we ensure a better place for future generations.

In the past few years, I’ve been seeking more design projects that promote sustainability, both in terms of organic and local food as well as businesses with humanitarian missions and green ideas. As a freelance designer, I offer discounted rates for local small businesses and non-profit organizations. I am also offering a “locavore savings” promotion for small businesses within the Seattle area. Contact me for more details or to receive a quote.
