Owner

Hi. My name is Hannah, and I own Design Break Studios. I’ve always been the type that wasn’t satisfied with a project until it was visually stunning. I’ve worked with individuals, small, and large companies to create designs for many different mediums: websites, logos, promotional or training materials, and even holiday cards. I spent many years migrating from one industry and role to another. But I found that, no matter what I was doing, I was invariably taking “design breaks” to draw graphic design work and visuals into my role.

I started Design Break Studios because I finally had to admit that designing is my life’s passion. I can go home happy if I’ve made you look great.

When I’m not spending free time on Saturday afternoons noodling around with new design ideas, I enjoy gardening, reading, time with family, and making other pretty things, like jars of jam or collages.

Lead Developer

If it‘s broken, Aaron can probably fix it. It’s a hard reputation to live with, but he manages somehow. Aaron is our senior programmer. He specializes in website design and development for WordPress, Joomla, Magento, Drupal and many other Open Source Content Management Systems.He has been programming in HTML, CSS, PHP, .NET & Coldfusion for over 10 years and has built and launched over 100 sites.

When he‘s not patiently fixing all technology hiccups in a 5-mile radius, he likes cooking, growing things, building things. And check it out, he runs 9th Node Networks, too. We don’t know how he does it.

Sarah Merciez

Web Wordsmith

Sarah, a bookworm by nature, has had a love affair with reading and writing since she was young. From a young age, she revelled in the ability to create a story from scratch and mold the characters into relatable but flawed people. She is enjoying breaking into a new type of writing and telling stories from perspectives she’s never taken before. The challenges unique to web writing stimulate her competitive nature and push her to syntactic gymnastics to wow both readers and Google.

When she‘s not working, Sarah is usually keeping up with and cleaning up after her two young kids. If she’s lucky enough to get them asleep at the same time she enjoys alone time with her husband, puzzles, video games and board games, and throwing pottery on the wheel.
