Information & Interfaces

Hi, I'm Sarah Mattern. I make things out of code and pixels and pen and paint. My approach to every project is to create exceptional work and great relationships with my clients.

How can I help you?

Happy Clients
  • BX Worldwide
    “Thank you so much for your hard work and lightning fast turnaround.  We got what we asked for and then some.  You have a great eye for design and did I mention you are fast!  I’m so happy I’d wear a sandwich sign with your business name on it and stand on the street corners for a week.  Is that weird?”
