Experience design for outdoor industry events and urban activations
STRATEGY, Design & COMMUNICATION SUPPORT FOR LIFE OUTSIDE
Work directly with me, Sarah Gallimore, owner and founder of MOR & Co. A lateral thinker, avid traveller, and "outsidesy" military spouse with nearly a decade's worth of work in experience design, creative strategy, brand development and clear communication – I'm a lover of climbing big rocks, walking meetings and the 3 P's (people, planet and profit).
Let's simplify + strengthen your business, services or experience so you can spend more time doing what you love and still have an enormous impact on your fellow humans and this beautiful planet!
Let's me help you with...
Blue sky + white space exploration
identity design + cultural content
I've spent the past decade, working as a multipassionate designer and strategist for start-ups and Fortune 500 clients alike with teams across the globe in San Francisco, Chicago, Toronto, Austin, London, Mumbai, Detroit and more. I've worked in almost every industry out there...
helping people frame problems and uncover solutions to tough questions that inspire action.
I'm a natural strategist and committed learner. I've been through one of the most innovative programs in the country with some of the brightest, future-focused minds around and earned a dual masters degree: an MBA in Design Strategy and an MFA in Transdisciplinary Design.
Work with me and you get to skip right to the good stuff though! I’m passing my accumulated knowledge in strategy and design on to you - for a fraction of the cost to obtain it in even less time - focusing on an area close to my heart: women and entrepreneurs outdoors.
