Sam Foot

Statement

I am a Cardiff based multi-disciplinary designer, with a strong interest and passion for in social and political change through editorial design and typographic outcomes. My portfolio consists of a wide range of print-based designs, illustration and motion design.

My work often plays with experimental design elements, playing with perceived notions and exploring thought provoking issues with the attempt to change mindsets through the use of engaging metaphors. In this way is hope that my work is able to shed light on the current social and political climate, whilst both challenging and engaging with existing beliefs. As well as providing a fun, and often tongue in check, gateway itself for individuals to engage in politics and question their political and social surroundings.

My portfolio demonstrates my design ability and illustrates my own confidence as a designer. I always strive to improve my design, through both self-directed and client led briefs.
