Samia Ahmed I am an award-winning illustrator specializing in narrative solutions. As a creative partner, I excel in collaboration as means of working through ambiguity. I received my BFA and Master’s from Carnegie Mellon University, where I was an active participant in craft-based learning. In my work, I am particularly interested in themes of representation and sharing a diversity of view points through thoughtful and meaningful visual solutions. I’ve worked for clients such at NASA, Liberty Mutual, Thumbtack, Restoration Hardware, and Pinterest. I speak about illustration as an evocative tool to clarify complex ideas & create emotional engagement, which start-ups can use to shape the narrative of their product pitches.
