Hi there!
My name is Samantha Shepardson, but most of the time I go by Sam. Currently I'm a Junior Designer for Bayard Advertising and a part-time Teaching Assistant for a UX/UI bootcamp.
My Past
I grew up in Tustin, California, but I decided I needed a change of scenery and moved to Fort Collins in 2014. Following my passion for art I graduated from Colorado State University with a degree in Graphic Design in May, 2018. In 2019 I moved to Denver to take a UX design immersive course at General Assembly, which I completed in September, 2019. I also completed General Assembly's Front-End Web Development course. 
When I'm not designing, you can find me somewhere on the mountain.
Design Philosophy 
Good design isn't subjective, it's objective.
There are a lot of things in life that are subjective, but design is not. It communicates efficiently and speaks for itself. It's formed from decision making and data. Design is not decoration; it solves a problem. 
Thank you!
