Hey! I’m Samay, a second-year undergraduate attending NYU Tisch School of the Arts majoring in interactive media arts and computer science. I specialize in UI/UX and have additional experience with graphic design.
My journey with design started with my graphic arts class in high school, where I learned the basics of Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. After years of practicing with different applications, I learned about UI/UX, a sector of design where I feel I can make meaningful impacts with my work.
Whenever I’m not designing, I love gathering a group to thrift at L Train Vintage or 2nd STREET USA. I’m also a huge movie, music, and pop culture lover, which has strongly influenced my interest in digital design. My favorite artists are KAYTRANADA, Travis Scott, and Tame Impala. My favorite film directors include Denis Villeneuve, Wong Kar-wai, and Christopher Nolan. Check out and follow my Letterboxd account! @samay_the1
FUN FACT: THE PICTURE OF ME ON THE LEFT IS WITH THE MUSIC PRODUCER METRO BOOMIN. AFTER WAITING FOR 3.5 HOURS AFTER CLASS IN BROOKLYN, HE SIGNED A CUSTOM-DESIGNED POSTER I MADE OF HIM (AS SEEN ON THE POSTERS PAGE).
