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.
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, I'm either snowboarding, mountain biking, trying out new breweries, or hanging out with my dog.
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.
