“Sarah Mattern is by far the most creative and adaptive designer there is. More importantly, she is easy to work with and dependable; so much so that our clients actually ask to work with her again. Sarah’s qualities are a fundamental reason our company is doing well.”
Kevin Knapp, CEO
“Our MatternCo-designed sites regularly receive positive feedback for their clean, elegant designs and intuitive usability. Behind the scenes, Sarah has been a dream to work with, delivering three projects for us, each of which was on-time, on-budget, with no drama – only results.”
“Sarah Mattern is a pleasure to work with. A consummate professional - creative and collaborative - she is driven to provide top notch design whether for print or online. I would definitely work with her again on future projects.”
Anat Baron, Filmmaker, CEO
