Hi, I am Sam Hutchings.
I’ve had many jobs over the last 15 years. From golf course greenskeeper to lead copywriter. But, for the last few years, I’ve worked hard to become a Designer and Artist, focussing on the human condition.
As a Designer, I believe in the holistic application of the Design Process to understand and resolve problems facing people everyday.
As an Artist, I look to understand the Human condition, and my own existence, through digital and physical art.
