I'm Sarah, a freelance illustrator and graphic designer from Central Switzerland.If you are interested in a collaboration or have a question, I would be happy to hear from you at mail@sarahvonrickenbach.ch


My path

Growing up in the countryside of Central Switzerland, my passion for design has taken me to exciting places. I learned the basics of visual communication during my bachelor studies in Bern as well as Berlin. Through valuable work experience in large and small agencies in Berlin, Zurich and Schwyz I was able to refine my design skills. Furthermore, I acquired profound knowledge in the field of project management during my master studies in design in Lucerne, where I also deepened my interest in illustration.

How I work

Already during my studies it crystallized that I am fascinated by the alternating challenges of independent design work. Among other things, because I prefer to guide people personally through the design process from A-Z. So today I support wonderful clients from the first contact to the final realisation of their projects. However, I still don’t want to miss working as a freelancer for various agencies.


My design style is primarily shown in charming, stylish and simple implementations, which I execute with great pleasure and great care according to personal customer wishes.

The inspiration for my works usually stems from my love for the diverse manifestations of nature, music and dance. In general, it is a great concern of mine to protect our planet as much as possible, which is why I implement projects as sustainably as possible.
