I am Samantha Vandal, a freelance graphic designer, assistant art director and content writer living and working from home. With a focus on current events my work is a fun way to engage an audience with a more complex perspective using my art.
Keeping politics in the eyes of the young voters is my goal as a creator, while the bonus is turning some heads and cracking jokes along the way.
Integrity and objectivity are the forefronts of my values when I begin a piece regardless of how absurd the topic may be.
