About Sam


My name is Sam Hewitt and I'm a 27 years-old digital designer living in Canada.

I believe in user-centric design and in my work I tend to focus on interface & icon design.

Free Software

I am a proponent of the use of Linux & free software and a believer in the open source model of development. As such, my design toolkit is comprised primarily of free & open source software (FOSS), primarily Inkscape and the GIMP.

To do my part as a member of the FOSS community, I've been a design contributor to many free software projects over the years, such as the elementary, GNOME, Solus and Ubuntu projects, along with many other small contributions.

I am currently a member of the GNOME Foundation and I was formerly an Ubuntu member.

Cooking! 👨🏻‍🍳

Aside from design, I'm have a great passion for food and cooking and my cooking blog is where I document many recipe and other endeavours in the kitchen.
