xin chào, tôi là sam || hello, I’m Sam

Samantha is my official name but most people call me Sam! I am a recent graduate from the University of Southern Mississippi with a graphic design BFA. Here’s me at the art building, where I spent the past three years at. I was born in Jackson, MS but have lived in Gulfport, MS since I was just a little kid. I am a Vietnamese-American, with a little bit of knowledge of Vietnamese, but I play Duolingo from time to time to regain my memory of the language.

Over the years at Southern Miss, I have tried to learn everything I possibly could about graphic design. Even though I’ve gained a big interest in motion graphics, layout/publication design, and typography, I have a wide range of knowledge and am always eager to learn new skills. Being surrounded by talented designers is something that keeps me motivated, because it not only makes me strive to be a better designer, but also more knowledgeable about new concepts and ideas.

A fun fact about me is that I’ve been learning hand lettering since about 2014 and enjoy lettering/painting quotes in my free time. I’m constantly online looking at expressive type and modern calligraphy artists (Faelpt | HomSweetHom) because I’m very interested in seeing how letterforms connect and can interact with each other.
