Samia Ahmed I am an award-winning artist specializing in illustration and storytelling, for both the animation and tech industries. My clients include The Washington Post, Stanford University, NASA, The Boston Globe, Liberty Mutual, and Pinterest. 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. For two years I taught User Experience Design at General Assembly. My students have gone on to work at companies such as Microsoft and Disney.
