She started her career in advertising as an Art Director at Trigger Communications, a Calgary based ad agency, working on clients such as the Calgary Zoo, Orchard Park Mall and Community Savings. From there, she moved to an agricultural focused agency called AdFarm spending most of her time on the Bayer CropScience account. Sabrina then took on a position from an affiliated company to Corbis Images called GreenLight Rights. There she worked with the personalities and rights of Muhammad Ali, Albert Einstein & Bruce Lee to name a few. In 2011, after working at GreenLight, she decided to start up Quarter Section Creative.

"We could not be happier"
"If you are looking for a professional to assist with re-branding, graphic design or anything to do with your image, you will do no better than hiring Sabrina @ QuarterSectionCreative. She brings the experience, knowledge and consultative skills you usually only get at big city agencies, all wrapped up in a personable, professional person. Her ability to understand how to represent you best graphically is fantastic and she always brings suggestions and out of the box ideas that push you to challenge your beliefs. I am looking forward to having a long working relationship with Sabrina as we develop many exciting projects together."
"Above and beyond expectations"
"Sabrina is a very talented art director and designer. Every project we have collaborated on has been above and beyond expectations. She is the go-to when I need something to really wow a client, and I can rely on her to deliver results consistently."
"You'll wish that she was part of your team full time"
"Working with Sabrina as a freelancer is in a word, frustrating.
This is not due to any lapse in creativity, intelligence or execution, but because with every interaction or piece of work, you’ll wish that she was a part of your team full time. This leads one to accept too many projects or pardon creeping scopes in the sad hope that the extra capacity will trigger the need to engage her once again.
Few freelancers, or permanent team members, that I have had the pleasure of working with can match Sabrina’s gift for effortlessly grasping a brief, deepening her understanding with the right questions and then delivering work that extends beyond what was asked for. As a professional, she seems to possess a rare agility that progresses each project and an innate modesty that produces a fluid collaboration.
So hire Sabrina, but be prepared to be frustrated like never before."
"Easily grasped our complex business"
"Sabrina was a quick study who easily grasped our complex business and understood how to take our needs and translate them into beautifully rendered creative. As important, as her understanding of the business grew over time her work showed an increased depth and, in turn, resonated well with our clients."
"Creative, Sensible, Thoughtful"
"She's creative, sensible, thoughtful, engaged and nice to be around - everything I'd want in a creative body."
Marketing Engagement Specialist
"Dawg Tired hired Sabrina to redo our logo(s) as part of our re-branding process. We had one meeting just to talk about the company and from that she had us nailed. Sabrina was thoughtful, and excellent listener, was able to extrapolate from our conversation our values, personalities, goals, passions and create our vision. We didn't know what that vision was, but Sabrina did. We could not be happier with our resulting logos and her continued support is amazing. We have since had Sabrina do a few other projects for us and we will use her in the future."
Co-Owner Dawg Tired Inc.
"Talented, strategic, detailed"
"Talented, strategic, detailed, thorough and truly collaborative are just a few of the words I'd use to describe Sabrina.
Working with her on a variety of projects as a freelance art director/writer team has showcased her ability to manage complexity, work under tight timelines and be a real team player/partner every step of the way.
When I'm on a project with Sabrina, I know It's going to be great. And fun. She has a way of making everything fun."
"Delivers truly forward thinking"
"Sabrina takes the time to understand a client's objectives, then delivers truly forward thinking design that balances art with real-world business results."
"Sabrina is the person you need"
"Ok, I am not even kidding. If you need someone to totally own a project, like I mean everything from timing to concepting to full execution, Sabrina is the person you need. No matter how big or how small the problem is she will deliver on time with multiple options the first time around. Her ability to perfect the details and work fast is what makes her an asset to any group with any project. I wish she never left our team to start her own thing, but if there is ever a chance to work with her again in the future, I will take it.

"Sabrina Kaun (McAllister) is a first class art director. Her creative skills combined with her strong knowledge of the agricultural industry and her wonderful personality allowed our agency to excel. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Sabrina Kaun (McAllister) again."
"Clear, Creative Vision"
"Sabrina is the Consummate Professional"
"It was a pleasure working with Sabrina while I was at Red Rover. She had a clear, creative vision, was organized, smart and such a pleasure to work with. The spots she conceived received numerous accolades and are among my favourites of my career. I would work with Sabrina again in a heartbeat."
Over the years, I've had occasions to engage the services of the type that Sabrina provides in her field of professionalism. I found that either they had an abundance of creativity but were shy on technical skill required to execute their / your vision, or they had all the technical skills required, but were lacking in imagination. Well, one look at Sabrina’s work on Quarter Section Creative tells most anyone that she was strong in all of these areas.
Where I really came to admire Sabrina was; “with her ideas and her concepts so far ahead of what I could envision”, I actually pulled back from Quarter Section Creative for a short period of time. I was unable to grasp just how advanced technology in this area had advanced and I had neither the time nor the energy to figure it out.
As it happened during that period of time, I had to go to Sabrina for advice on “this” or advice and direction on “that” and to my amazement Sabrina treated me like (family), ………. like she had forgotten that I was a “past client” and I had never left. That is one rare and incredible “icing on the cake” quality that you rarely see anymore. Can I come back as a client so we can move the marketing quality forward
a few levels Sabrina??
