Samantha Hudak

Graphic Designer

As the go-to Designer of Pixels at the company – I provide the highest quality of pixels in the greater Cleveland area. I am a self-described craver for visual communication and composition philosophy. My greatest displeasure is seeing a piece of text misaligned or bad typography on a business card. I rejoice in great logo design, branding, colors, and textures. I spend a lot of time on Dribbble and enjoy the finer things such as cute Game of Thrones gifs fellow designers create. What it all boils down to though, is that I design what needs to be communicated in an aesthetically pleasing way.
