Sarah Brockett

Software Consultant & Designer, Grand Rapids

Brockett Sarah 2016 Web

I am a multidisciplinary designer who utilizes empathy to solve problems and create delightful experiences. I do this with a mission to positively impact the lives of many, while always remaining curious and humble.

I began my design career at Grand Valley State University, where I graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design. I started working for marketing agencies before graduation, and was quickly scooped up into the world of product packaging and advertising campaigns. I had the opportunity to work on a large range of projects, in a fast-paced environment, but I felt that something was missing from my life. Being a natural humanitarian, I was drawn to a profession that allowed me to impact lives in a more positive way.

This drive is what brought me to the world of software and interaction design. Today, I am delighted to be an Atom, working with a group of highly skilled and intelligent individuals, creating software that improves lives.

When I’m not busy creating custom software, you can find me riding my horse Luna, baking elaborate vegan treats, or training and teaching lyra (aerial hoop) at Grand Rapids Circus.
