About Us

Hello everybody,

My name is Sage Lovell (sign name “sweet”) and I am the founder of Deaf Spectrum. Let me tell you a bit about us – the idea first came up in about 2013 when we noticed a huge lack of accessible information in sign language. This idea became reality in January 2015 with our YoutTube Channel. One the past three years, we have expanded our services. For example, Grant Writing Services, Workshops (for Deaf, HoH, and Hearing – both in sign language and interpreted spoken English), Accessibility, Sign Language Interpreter Bookings (for large events only), Sign Language Performances, Private One-on-One Tutoring Services, Event Planning

Our beautiful new logo was designed by Carlisle Robinson with input from the Deaf Spectrum team! You can check out Carlisle’s artwork here – www.carodoodles.tumblr.com

The idea of Deaf Spectrum first emerged in 2013 after a group of young Deaf activists realized that there was a huge lack of accessible information in American Sign Language (ASL). The idea turned into action in Jan 2015 with our YouTube Channel. We primarily focus on bringing accessible resources to Deaf communities by producing sign language vlogs.

Over the past three years, we have produced almost three hundred sign language translation videos, gathered more resources, and worked with more than twenty various businesses, organizations and groups. We are still a work in process – learning and gathering resources that we need to provide the Deaf communities with quality information that is accessible for all of us.
