I’ve helped Nature.com push the boundaries of their site across all devices whilst excelling in a sound user experience, have been featured in Drawn “the best illustrators Worldwide”, saving the rainforest one content at a time for Borneo Orangutan Survival, designed and built over 200 animated banners and counting, and can be seen photographing off the beaten track all over (if you’re willing to follow me).
Hi, I’m Sam Rios.
Creative skills comes with life experience, not just industry experience
15 years on as a designer, my skill-set has grown from UI design to many areas of print, brand and animation.
Covering creative and corporate needs, I have art directed many projects from conception to final delivery whilst keeping stakeholders and teams in check globally. Wherever I may be!
My passions in life include networking, travel, photography, culture, and future technologies. This is evident through my growing channels of social content, keep an eye out as I’m working on more.
These hobbies have reflected positively in my work and how I approach every project with an open mind.
What I can offer
From beginning to end
Starting with your end goals I will produce a plan that will not only achieve the results you’re after, but look great too!
With 10 years in the industry plus 5 in freelance, I’ve achieved great design for startups and global organisations. So working with teams around the World is no problem there, you’re in safe hands.
Positive attitudes, positive outcomes
Having travelled extensively in the past has opened my mind and given me a laid back and personal approach. Ensuring that my work will impact positively on everyone involved looking ahead of the project at hand.
I’ve traveled, to expand
Some noteworthy projects
What started out as a small trial period of beer brewing, grew to local fame all from the owner’s garage. What stood out was the striking brand and label design, an exciting project to undertake. Using only bold colours and a striking Rockhopper Penguin.
A Grand Wedding
Why would a wedding be worth mentioning you might say; these elegantly designed table cards is well worth a mention. The couples experiences from New York has been brought to life with a stylish patterned design, gold foiled and brushed to really make it stand out.
Now we just have to wait till COVID is over so that the wedding can go underway!
