About BySamantha

I'm Samantha (of course) and I'm a full time graphic designer. BySamantha was created in 2012 and born out of an itch for creativity and a desire to try something new. A few experimental products developed out of a dorm room have evolved into hundreds of products and a full time online store. Our designs have been carried in popular retail stores including Anthropologie and HomeGoods.

The style of my work is as eclectic as my own style. I love to decorate with vintage, mystic, bohemian, and travel themes along with a wide range of colors. 

In May 2015 I graduated from the University of North Carolina. I now work full time creating your orders and designing new products.

I find inspiration in my travels and the beautiful colors and motifs in nature. I love to work with silhouettes, nature, old book illustrations, and in flowers. 


Each of my hand lettered designs is created by me by first sketching out the design, then inking it into my sketchbook. The design is then photographed and digitized and transformed into prints and other goods! 

Original lettered globes are hand-painted and never exactly the same. Our globes are constantly changing as we pick and choose new beauties from the collection.
