Hello!

I’m Sarah Linklater, aka Slinky. I’m a graphic designer based in Melbourne who loves travel, reading, coffee, eating all the food. I thrive on developing brands, websites, infographics, reports and other design bits and bobs for organisations who are making a difference.

I’m here to help you connect with your audience and deliver your message cleanly and succinctly through simple, bold graphic design. Because if you’re making a positive impact on the world, we want people to know about it and, more importantly, understand it.

I believe that design is a collaborative process. Together we’ll explore all the ideas, innovations and quirks that make your organisation unique. Then, I’ll turn these findings into contemporary designs that clearly communicate your goals and message.

For design that makes a difference, please drop me a line…
I’d love to get to know you!

Infographics & Icons

Need icons to showcase your services or a complex infographic to show your research findings? I do both, and everything in between.

I work with…

…organisations across both the public and private sector that have something positive to contribute to the world. My existing clients include universities, conferences and events, research centres, government agencies and those in the corporate sector who act as agents for change in the way people work and live.

See me as an alternative option to your under-the-pump internal design teams!

One of the bonuses in working with Slinky Did It is I can work within your institutional structure, following your existing graphic design or brand guidelines. I’ll keep your branding and marketing departments happy by following their guidelines, while being able to devote the time to create a targeted response to your project within your timelines.

“Sarah’s work has been instrumental in the development of my brand. I’ve benefited greatly from her ability to understand and develop my ideas and she is generous with offering new possibilities in addition to following the brief. Sarah has that rare combination of creativity and scrupulous professionalism that means she is a pleasure to work with while also producing excellent designs.”

– Rowan Mangan, Library Quest

So…

…if you need a designer to push the boundaries, I’m on board, but only if that means we’re going to hit the mark and achieve your goals – I’m not one to go over the top unnecessarily.

I believe design should be an extension of what already exists in your organisation, not something that overpowers or inhibits your messaging and objectives.

I’m a collaborative designer who wants to help you look good, for the good of the world. So, come on, let’s take this journey together!
