About

My name is Sam Hewitt

I'm a digital designer living in Canada.

In my work I tend to focus on user interface & icon design. I believe that good icons should be simple, geometric & free from extraneous detail (especially when they are small). If an icon is meaningful and well-crafted, it need not be frequently redesigned.

As a proponent of Linux & free software and a believer of development in the open, my design toolkit is comprised mostly of free & open source software, primarily Inkscape and the GIMP. As such, I've been making design contributions to many free and open source software projects over the years,elementary, GNOME and Ubuntu to name a few.

Aside from my passion for design, I'm a avid lover of food, and I maintain a cooking website dedicated to my endeavours in the kitchen. I also have a keen interest in photography.
