Hi!

My name is Sam Phillips-Varneke. I’m a web designer, graphic designer, and SEO marketer by trade. However, I don’t just do graphic design as a profession, it’s also one of my hobbies. I enjoy creating typographic posters, taking and editing photos, and doodling in general in my spare time. I’ve had more than one dream about Photoshop. I’m always excited and thrilled when I discover new techniques or learn a new skill (right now it’s all about Google AdWords).

I’m a workaholic because I love what I do and I’m constantly seeking out opportunities to help businesses launch their brands.

Other stuff I like besides graphic design

I’ve always been a voracious reader. I read Macbeth when I was 10 because I enjoy theater as much as books. Doing musicals and plays my entire life has given me excellent public speaking skills.
As much as I love theater, books, and movies, television is my favorite form of entertainment. When I find a great show, I NEED to share it with people. Feel free to email me if you need recommendations on shows to watch.
