Sam Winfield (that’s me) is a digital designer from Philly with a background in visual and interactive design. I specialize in developing strategic, accessible design systems for web products. Most recently, I was a Senior Designer at Bluecadet.
I like making things that are modest and useful. I’m currently listening to Gong Gong Gong 工工工 and Cate Le Bon.
