My name is Sam chaffin.

I’m a web designer + writer. I think you have a universe of stories in you.

 

I got into web design because I love storytelling. I started out as a writer (I’ve been writing fiction most of my life and I’ve also been a contributing blogger for The Yellow Conference, The Higgins Creative, and a few other places). I studied Theatre & English Literature at the University of Southern California, and then was introduced to creative communications when I started working at nonprofits in and after college.

I already knew I loved words, but the world of mission-driven marketing is where I discovered a love for visual storytelling and design.

I’ve been a digital content consultant and web designer since 2012, starting with small businesses in southern California and later getting to work with larger and international organizations. My nonprofit roots give me a soft spot for cause marketing and socially responsible brands; I believe we all vote with our dollar for the kind of world we want to create.

On a more personal note, fiction writing is still a passion of mine and I’m working on publishing my first novel. I currently live in Los Angeles, where I work a day job at an all-girls’ school as an online content manager (fun fact: I have lived in a lot of places, including Maryland, Colorado, and briefly across the pond in London, England). When I’m not typing furiously at one job or another, I’m probably at home reading or being an overattentive plant mom.

Think we might be good together? I’d love to hear more about your upcoming project.
