Hi I'm Samantha Lucy Haslam!

You can call me Sam  (but not sammy)(she/they)

I have over 12 years of experience creating memorable, unique and dynamic graphics for a wide variety of clients. I have worked on children's books, editorial illustration, graphic design of every kind, motion and info graphics, as well as working on animated short films, both independently and as part of a team. My work spans across multiple mediums and applications, however I am currently most interested in projects that further social justice causes, education, environmentalism and that promote equity, accessibility, diversity and inclusion. As a member of the LGBTQIA+ community I am not interested in creating graphics for any companies or projects that promote harm, either for society, the individual or the planet.  I do not make use of AI software for any of my final work, and have trained for years to be able to create high end, properly built files. And since I'm not a machine, we can more easily communicate and design a tailor made solution for your cause or business.  

​If all of that doesn't scare you off and you're looking for a multi-talented weirdo to bring some visual interest to your idea, cause or business, let's connect!
