It was spring of 2009 when Sarah Rebar packed up and moved to New York. She had just completed an apprenticeship with Joseph Krzemienski at Postage, Inc. / theFictory
Her new environment brought her into an internship with Animation Collective in New York as well as a freelance design job with Monkey Doodle Dandy eventually landing her regular employment with the toy design company.
Seeking a multitude of options in her field, Sarah acquired a prop design internship at the commercial co. PandaPanther. She had the opportunity to work as a prop designer and painter on two pop tarts commercials.
She even did some work for Columbia University’s Education Lab, as an After Effects animator and graphic designer. While taking several night classes at SVA, Sarah met a woman who worked at Sesame Workshop on “The Electric Company.” “It was all being at the right place at the right time.” says Sarah. After applying, Sarah acquired a Production Assistant position there.
During her preliminary year on staff at Sesame Workshop, Sarah did little relating to her background.
“They had me doing a lot of grunt work at their offices in Manhattan archiving artwork, finding stuff for producers, helping out the art director and occasionally getting a chance to do some graphic design and flash animation. Now it’s almost 2 years working at Sesame Workshop, and currently I’m working as an artist / animator on some HTML 5 games we are designing for web and apps — mostly so that these games are played on iPad and iPhone devices. It’s been a very interesting experience, and a lot of my random backgrounds in packaging, design, and animation are all coming into play.”
It’s nice to hear the stories of hard work and payoff from those in the art field like Sarah because artists don’t always have the luxury of working in their field right away. We’re proud of Sarah and feel very privileged when she drops by the office during brief trips to Lancaster.
When approached by Wheatland Federal Credit Union to do something special for their 75th birthday, we were excited. We’d like to present to our readers, two television commercials we did for Wheatland celebrating their 75th Anniversary by calling to mind some great 75 year achievements in our area.
Here's a project we're working on with a fantastic Lancaster Agency, Alpha Dog. The company is HAAN USA. They make fine steam mops, garment steamers and hand-held steam cleaners. We make clean cleaners using CGI for optimal placement, lighting and imagery. The finished designs will be used in product packaging nationwide!
It’s finally here. AWI/Shurfine and specifically the York Advertising Group under the guidance of the Ad Sage, Natalie Flick is now HD! Ad Sage chose Postage, Inc. to create crisp timely advertisements for these quality locally-owned Shurfine stores.
