Graphic designer and artist Sarah Boris has always charted her own course through the creative industries, from starting out in-house rather than at a studio, to setting up her own practice in 2015. She discusses what she’s learned along the way
From the outside looking in, Boris’ decision to leave Phaidon in 2015 and swap in-house life for the uncertainty of running her own practice might be surprising. But for the designer, it felt like the perfect time to embrace the change that comes with quitting a full-time job. “One of the main reasons for setting up my studio was to dedicate more time to my art practice while still taking on design commissions,” she says.
