“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress.
Working together is success.”
— Henry Ford
Sage Media is founded by Carlos Camarena and Mary Diaz, a husband and wife partnership. Having met in design school, they have shared many interests including design, photography, food, culture and travel. They established Sage Media to assist companies in achieving their business communication goals. As partners, Carlos and Mary place a strong value on teamwork and open communication. They are inspired by artists/designers such as M.C. Escher, Paula Scher, Massimo & Lella Vignelli and Charles & Ray Eames. Carlos and Mary are dubbed as “the explorers” since they both love embarking on road trips, discovering new places and appreciating the beauty of nature.
Carlos has always had the curiosity of how everyday ideas and products are conceptualized and built. This innate quality has led him to be a designer by transforming art from concept to fruition. He is drawn to simple, clean and meaningful design. Carlos has further developed a passion for photography specializing in structural buildings, interiors, retail products and nature. He has an affinity for animals and when the opportunity arises, he loves to sprinkle his food with lemon, chili and salt.
With over 15 years of design experience, Mary delivers a wide range of expertise including corporate identity, packaging, print collateral and website design and development, along with a strong understanding of print production processes. She brings a valuable mix of both logic and aesthetics with her keen attention to detail, organizational skills and thoughtful approach to design. In her spare time, she can be found hand lettering or drawing. Mary appreciates tranquil spaces and is an avid fan of ice cream and french fries.
“Sage Media is incredibly responsive and accommodating with Boys & Girls Clubs of Garden Grove. Both Carlos and Mary are a pleasure to work with and are always extremely patient in answering our questions as well as working with us on our creative needs. As a non-profit organization serving more than 6,500 youth and teens daily along with their families, it is important for us as an organization to partner with businesses who understand and support our mission and company values. We found that partnership with Sage Media. Our 2017 Impact Report is truly a work of art thanks to Carlos and Mary!”
