Kerri Costello, Graphic Designer

Kerri Costello is our artistic expert, and her logos and images can be found in many ForwardView projects. Clients often remark that they can't decide on a logo design from one of the multiple ideas that Kerri presents. Why? The client loves them all! That's the only difficulty we appreciate here at ForwardView.

Kerri is a graduate of the Hussian School of Art in Pennsylvania, where she earned multiple awards for her work. (We're not surprised at all.) She can typically be found drawing something or spending time with her fantastic family.

Sarah A. Easley, M.A.

When Sarah was a young girl, she discovered a passion for the written word. Her parents didn’t allow her to watch TV on weeknights, so there wasn’t much of an option but to find as many books to stick her nose into as possible. What began as a simple alternative to gluing herself to a screen quickly became her favorite hobby – and the foundation for a rewarding career. Books taught Sarah that stories are the beating heart of who we are as individuals, communities, and businesses. Today, as a professional content writer, she takes those stories and helps the people behind them express and develop their narratives through creative copy.

Sarah holds a B.A. in History and a M.A. in English from Southern New Hampshire University. In her spare time, Sarah continues to read as many fantasy and historical fiction novels as possible, always while cuddled up with a mug of tea and her sheltie, Rowan!
