Sam and I worked together in design for 8ninths for a year, and in that time, I was blown away by his ability to pickup and learn new tools to get the job done. He had significant animation and motion graphics skills under his belt when we started, but was thrown a curve ball with new technology and platform limitation that were demanding to say the least. In no time, he was flying through designs to deliver concepts to our satisfied clients. He demonstrates his eye for style, color and typography, across mediums. I’m floored by the creativity and professional polish he lends to print, marketing, animation, and digital product design. He works at speed, for scale, and delivers executive-review-ready presentations. Sam would be an incredible asset to any team, for his professionalism, dedication, and can-do attitude. All that said, he’s also an Artist of a caliber that I’m excited to follow. I can’t wait to see what Sam does next.
