designers do not blog…or should not.

Hello. I’m one of the three design interns here at RELEVANT. Since introductions are awkward and I could totally lie to you about me and you’d believe me, I’ll give you only the basic details (which actually are true). My name is Sarah Qualls and I go to design school in Grand Rapids, MI & go to Mars Hill and work on the Art Team there. I major in graphic design. I’m 20….and left handed…and i hate comic sans and papyrus. Notice I saved the most important details for last. 


I usually don’t write so people can read it, because I’m not a writer…I’m a designer. I find blogging so people I’ve never met can read what I think mildly horrifying. And I’m definitely not a good writer. But I find it irresistible not to document my time here, and more importantly, the hilarious things that go on. Most of which come from sitting within earshot of Tim and Lloyd. I’m shocked they haven’t fired Megan and I on a count of not being able to shut up and stop laughing. My days here could be numbered haha


It’s very weird actually being here because originally I got the internship for this past spring but God had other plans for me and the door was closed there. I was disappointed but turns out, God knows better than I do. So weird how that works. And now being down here and working, the people Ive met and the opportunities Ive been given far outweigh what I had originally planned. So, Thank God for…. knowing better than we do.


I have a theory, that I credit to my LONG history of life experiences, that being a right brained person makes it difficult to communicate verbally. I communicate visually- makes sense, I mean my job is to create something visual to communicate a bigger idea. So if I could use my design skills to tell you something, I’d be far more effective than I am at communication. But I will do my best to get my ideas across as pain free as possible, for your sake. I am debating just using photography to tell you a story instead of dragging you through my experiment of communicational growth here on the intern blog.


I’m writing this blog while listening to viva la vida by coldplay and it is infuriating that I can’t stop listening to this!!! So Im telling you this so you’ll go listen to it and get hooked like I am and drive yourself insane listening to it on repeat till you can’t sleep without hearing it. Your welcome.


I hope this wasn’t too painful. I’ll post some photography of mine so you can put a face with the name and turn this into the kind of blog I’d like to read- one with pictures!
