Veronica Camargo

Sam is a visual designer, brand developer, and photographer who also happens to write code for fun. She’s passionate about exploring the intersection of design and technology that empowers clients to create more enriching brand experiences.

From early on, Sam always knew she would turn her creative passions into a full blown career. Growing up just north of Chicago in Mundelein, she moved to the big city to pursue her Bachelor of Arts degree in graphic design at Columbia College and fell in love with Chicago’s buzzing energy, arts scene, and vibrant architectural history.

On her off days you can find Sam in the kitchen testing out new recipes found in the New York Times, participating in a 70-day hand-lettering challenge, learning a new programming language online, or maybe just petting your dog. Sam is also an avid hiker and feels very much at home at elevations of 8,000 feet. Some recent peaks she has conquered include Crater Lake (OR) and Mt. Mansfield (VT).
