Margaret Johns of Sage Design is a graphic designer with over 15 years of experience in design and project management. At Sage Design, we specialize in logo design and branding, brochures, annual reports, web design, cd design and media kits, presentation folders, advertising, multi-media, trade show graphics, signage and illustration. We are experts in understanding client needs and their target audience and translating all information and research into unique visuals.

There are many designers who make things look pretty. Few take the time to sift through all the information required to really capture the essence of a company or individual. At Sage Design, all clients are interviewed to make sure we understand both them and their product or service. We then research the product or service to totally understand the industry. We evaluate the competition to better understand how our client stands out. We then discover the client’s target audience and develop the method(s) that best reach this market.
From this point, we create.

Logo design and branding is our specialty. Here are examples of logos, websites, apps and rack cards.


We have several clients that have ongoing updates to their sites. We also maintain their social media site with content and images.


There are website blogs we maintain as well as creating digital newsletters for clients who realize the necessity of ongoing contact.

We love the logo designed by Margaret at Sage! We had several logos designed from different sources. When we test marketed the logos, the Sage design jumped to the front every time.
