Hello! My name is Samantha Nguyen, but most people call me Sam. I was born in Jackson, MS but have lived in Gulfport, MS for as long as I can remember. I received my Associates Degree in Art at MGCCC before transferring to Southern Miss to pursue a BFA in graphic design. I am a Senior Designer for the SPVA Design Team where I contributed to a handful of designs, and even produced some award-winning work! I have gained such a big interest in typography, motion graphics, layout/publication design, and web design from my time here at USM. I have always loved typography and it could be because of my skill at hand lettering that I picked up around 2014. Being known for hand lettering is a cool recognition I’ve gotten while being in the program. I believe being a type or web designer would never bore me, and if that is where I end up in life, I would be the happiest person ever.
