SARAH J. SIMMONS is a multifaceted freelance creative living in Nashville, TN.
She is the owner of the art based children's clothing brand, little saint southwest and runs saint southwest studio, a hybrid art and design studio, which focuses on the importance of collaborative art, story, and human connection. 

She has worked with clients such as Puma, Nike, REI, The Future of Storytelling, Google, and Red Bull to drive the aesthetics of multiple local and international campaigns. 

Harnessing her own experience as a business owner and her agency marketing experience for both large companies as well as small innovative start-ups like NEVER Coffee, she leads the charge to help brands get the visuals they need to communicate effectively and succeed.

specializing in understanding the ethos that is driving a project or a brand, she works with the client to create a visual identity that represents that ethos... it begins with understanding the client, the client's story, and how to turn that story into a work of art.
beautiful art. fun art. weird art. the right kind of art to tell the story.

Storytelling is at the heart of everything she makes... every line, every image, every scene, every logo. 

so If you have a story you need to tell...

get in contact.

"As an artist and designer, Sarah combines her unique abilities as a trained fine artist with her impeccable tastes. The result is work that speaks directly into trend, art history and the design conversation with a fresh and much needed point-of-view. Her work lives in that space where aesthetics transcend the visual; her design and art direction uses visuals to tell stories, create connections and impart feeling. Within a project, Sarah pairs her aesthetic with her keen ability to understand and elevate a brand or project’s message to speak more honestly to an audience. She is an art director who can be the driving force in digital, print and video because she uses her abilities to answer the most crucial needs of a project or brand."
