Pigs that fly, steers that sell themselves, a course for horses – all made from cards.

Sometimes good design can act as a trigger that unleashes a flood of creativity. This is what happened when Enbridge Inc. came to Sasges Inc. as the national sponsor of 4-H Canada’s 100th anniversary celebrations last year. They asked us to develop a commemorative gift that would be distributed to all of 4-H members, and to create an online campaign to promote engagement across the country. Read more…

Evaluating, advising, suggesting, guiding… we’ve spent more than 25 years expressing our opinions to clients, designers, suppliers and students. Seasoned, insightful thinking has translated to great work, along with numerous accolades and awards. But it’s a career highlight when Applied Arts, Canada’s prestigious visual communications magazine, asks you to voice your opinions as their 2013 guest design columnist. We were honoured to get the call and can’t wait to share our views on anything and everything that captures our interest. Read more…


When a client asks us to “re-envision” real-estate marketing, we get excited. When they mention the words “inner city development,” our design team leaps for the challenge.

Being a designer is a blessing and a curse and at Sasges Inc. we wear the designer badge with pride. But sometimes, we catch ourselves and say, “ Wow, that obsession is really over the top”. Here are some of our best: Read more…
