Hi! I'm Sascha, a multidisciplinary designer based in Manchester with a studio in Cheshire.

I create work with artists and creatives to bring stories to life and realise spaces for theatre, installations, festivals and galleries.

Alongside designing, I run workshops and sessions covering elements of design, making and sustainability.


Working collaboratively, getting minoritised voices heard and a focus on sustainability are at the core of my creative process.
I am a co-founder of the North West Design Allotment and a member of the Society of British Theatre Designers.
