Sarah Gibbens is a creative designer based in Baton Rouge. She graduated from LSU in 2007 and opened her online print business, Painted Post Studio, in 2010.
Through her business and freelance design clients, she was able to take the leap into freelance design full-time in 2014. Today, she consults a range of companies in many different creative facets -- including SFT.
She recently completed her second historic renovation in New Orleans while also pursuing creative marketing for her local clients in Louisiana.
Sarah and Meredith met through one of Painted Post Studio’s local clients and quickly began working together in Fall 2013 to build the designs for football season.
Today, Sarah designs every t-shirt printed by SFT, and her role has continued to evolve into a creative consultant -- helping to build a strong social media and web presence for the brand. This is a wide-ranging position from photography, active marketing and developing a social strategy.
She also assists with the overall long-term strategy of the brand -- pushing it in the direction it wants to go. In her years at SFT, she has learned the importance of listening to the consumer, and through the tragedy of the August flooding, she saw the effect that a small local business can have on the community.
Sarah currently has her hands in a good bit of the daily work growing SFT and can be spotted in the showroom at least once a week!
