Our Team

SAM-LAB is a team of designers and writers who work collaboratively from home offices across North America. Since 2005, we’ve produced tens of thousands of projects for companies worldwide.

Our goal is to work as an extension of our clients’ teams and build tight relationships as creative consultants. Designers and writers are matched with clients and projects based on their skillsets and expertise. Some of our team members are masters in powerpoint. Others have a knack for infographics and illustration. Everyone brings their professionalism and hard work to the table on each and every project—large or small.
