RINGLING COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN
Sam Grimm is a senior majoring in Graphic Design and minoring in the Business of Art and Design. Growing up she was always drawn towards art and design but it was not until she had already started her college education when she discovered graphic design as a career. This ignited a new journey fueled by passion that has led her to where she is today. Her love for the design process and ability to fuse design with strategy brings her projects to life with the intention to invoke thought and action. She has found that finding the reason people care is the core to successful design and she strives to reach the core every time.
WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL INSPIRED?
I find my inspiration all around me but especially in nature. There is nothing like going outside and experiencing all the textures, smells, and views nature has to offer. FAVORITE MOVIE, TV SHOW, BOOK, AND/OR PODCAST? I am always listening to Bad Bunny. His music never fails to put me in a good mood and get my creative juices flowing.
WHAT AREA OR AREAS OF DESIGN ARE YOU HOPING TO WORK IN OR SPECIALIZE IN?
I truly enjoy all aspects of design and because of this I am hoping to work at an advertising agency where there are opportunities to work on a variety of projects after graduation.
WHAT IS ONE THING THAT DESIGN SCHOOL HAS TAUGHT YOU THAT YOU DID NOT EXPECT?
Your ability to speak to your work and articulate your thoughts is just as valuable as the quality of your design.
WHO IS SOMEONE YOU LOOK UP TO IN YOUR FIELD? EITHER TODAY OR HISTORICALLY?
I look up to Paula Scher. She is such an icon and has impacted the design industry and community in so many ways.
