Sara Elias

Co-Founder

Sara Elias is the other founding partner of Hiwire Creative and has a remote office based in Mission. She has an extensive background in graphic design and illustration and collaborates on all projects. She holds a Degree in Media and Culture and a Diploma in Graphic Design from the University of the Fraser Valley.

After graduation she was recruited back to her hometown of Chilliwack to work with the City on in the design and development of their website. In 2000 she began a career in offset print design and illustration along side Geoff. After working together for almost 10 years it was obvious that their two distinct design styles had great chemistry and Hiwire Creative was born.

When she is not organizing projects and creating outstanding designs, Sara can be found in any one of our local fitness facilities as an Independent Fitness Leader and Workshop Presenter. Her recent transition to semi‑competitive, ultra endurance running is a reflection of her disciplined and focused personality.
