Who is Michael Samples?

I'm a North Texas native who has spent more than fifteen years as a designer and art director at a variety of Dallas publications, but mostly at the Dallas Business Journal.

When it comes to visual communications, I'm really a jack of all trades. Whether it's print or digital, in motion or static, my goal is always to find compelling and unique ways to tell a story visually. In addition to having an unquenchable thirst for creative challenges, I am always acutely aware of the technical side of the equation. A beautiful exterior is worthless without the right framework and craftsmanship underneath.

I live just a stone's throw north of Dallas with my wife and two sons. My hobbies include being a music nerd, an art geek, a videogame junkie and a technology buff.
