Samuel Schröder
Communication Designer

Stuff about Sam:

General ︎︎︎

I am a 2022 graduate from the Communication Design program at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit Michigan.
I was born and raised in Germany, moved to Michigan in late 2016, where I finished up high school before pursuing my 4-year BFA in Communication Design.
In April 2023, after 6.5 years in the States, I moved back to Germany and am excited to start a new chapter in my life and work. I’m very happy to relocate for the right opportunity, within the EU and beyond!

Interests ︎︎︎

My design interests lie in type, motion design, branding, print–and publication design, UI/UX, and exhibition design.
I really enjoy –and have 10+ years experience in– photography, and pull that love for, say, composition into design as well.
As a huge film nerd I take going to the movies way too seriously. I love going on walks, the gym, and occasionally need to escape into the woods. A good book, podcast, or existential crisis might be on my mind. I’m also fascinated by the rapid evolution of AI tools and am excited to see how these will impact and change the design industry (alongside many other industries) over the coming years and decades.

Work ︎︎︎

Since graduating in May 2022, I’ve been freelancing as a designer for clients like Jack Morton (on projects for GM, Buick, Hyland), Birmingham Public Schools (re-designing family of school logos), and more.
I completed a 4 month-long internship during the 2021 summer as a full-time Design Intern at Lafayette American, which gave me the opportunity to gain an inside look at how a creative agency, and more specifically the design team, functions.
Additionally I had the pleasure of working with Honda for about a month in a collaborative sponsored studio through CCS, as well as with the Grosse Pointe Chamber of Commerce on a semester-long, sponsored studio where we (a collaborative team of 8 students) re-defined and -designed the GPCC brand, which is currently in use.
