Cool! You wanted to know more about me? Well, here’s all that’s fit to print!
Hi there! Nice to meet you! I’m Laura Sage, and I am ThePixelPixie.
I’ve been designing websites, logos, and print materials, since the mid-1990s, and spent nearly 20 years as a top-level administrative assistant mainly in the high-tech manufacturing industry. So I bring a good number of years of experience to the table in order to support your business needs.
My clients are very important to me, and I’m thrilled to say that all of my clients are brilliant, creative, wonderful people, and are a true pleasure to work with.
When you hire ThePixelPixie, you’re hiring someone who specializes in working with the small business owner, and someone who has worked extensively in the non-profit performing arts sector, as well as with Fortune500 companies such as Disney, AT&T, DishNetwork, and American Express.
Whether you need a new website designed or maintained, an old website to be updated, or have fliers or programs to be designed and printed, ThePixelPixie knows what needs to be done and how to do it right!
(since I believe in getting to know my clients and I hope they get to know me as well)
So I manage to keep myself pretty busy.
I have worked as a Disney Store designer, working on tech outlines and drawings for costumes (which is why I can’t display any of that work…arghhhh). I have also worked for high tech engineering firms such as 3D Systems, in the environmental engineering field (A.E. Schmidt Environmental and Gateway Science & Engineering), and in the aerospace industry (LORAL Electro-Optical Systems), so I have a heavy background in tech. I have also done client work for such firms as American Express, Group Health, AT&T, and 211la.org. I have been using computers since the earliest days of the PC, having started out on an Apple IIe.
Music has been a big part of my life since I was born. My dad is a concert pianist, conductor, and newly-retired professor of piano and music history. My mother has a Masters in Vocal Performance, my aunts have held long-standing positions with both the Miami Opera Chorus and the Maggio Musicale in Florence, Italy. And my brother is one of the most sought-after violists in the Los Angeles area. For my part, I began studying violin at the age of 4 and have been a professional violinist for almost as long as I can remember. In college I switched my main musical focus to voice and opera, but being back in the Chattanooga area means that I have more gigs as a violinist as both an independent contractor, and as a sub in the Chattanooga Symphony.
So it seems that the creative bent of logo, print and website design was a logical additional step. I enjoy the process, and love seeing the finished product free and out in the world.
Although my teenagers live in Los Angeles, I have a full house of fur-babies: 4 cats (Purrcy, Lucifur, Clawed Debussy, & Abbey Normal), and 2 dogs (Ophelia & Lebowski). I credit these sweet creatures with keeping me relatively sane and we all anxiously await each visit from the teenagers.
I look forward to meeting you and discussing how we can work together.
