About Sabine Deviche

Resume (PDF)

Hello! Looking for quality illustrations, graphic design layouts, or web development? 

I specialize in front-end web development, digital illustrations, infographics, and clear vector line art. I have a passion for explaining complicated concepts using illustrations and interactive games, and for simplifying large volumes of content into easily understandable pieces.

I earned my BA in Drawing with a minor in Biology from Arizona State University, and have over 16 years of professional experience in online browser game/simulation development, web development, digital illustration, and design layout. I also have extensive experience developing educational material for a young (K-12) audience. I'm extremely detail oriented, a great communicator, easy to work with independently or as part of a team, and passionate about creating beautiful, high-quality graphics.

I'm always on the lookout for new projects of any size, so if you're looking for a reliable, experience designer, please don't hesitate to contact me. I'd love to hear about your project and find out how my creative skills can be of service!
