Hello! I am Samantha Onyx Reitnauer.
I graduated from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania in May of 2018 with a BFA in Communication Design,
concentrating in Advertising and Graphic design. I am currently a digital designer with Impress Decor but am excited to find my next adventure in the design world. 

I believe I have had a unique design career journey up until this point. I have freelanced, worked in an office but also took time to waitress/bartend while I figured out my next steps, which I believe has made me a better designer! Freelancing taught me the manage projects and time completely on my own. There was no boss telling me what needed done when- it was all me! I needed that discipline! Waitressing and bartending may look like useless when it comes to designing, but I believe it is not! I can work under pressure, handle a variety of people and their personalities, (customers and coworkers) work hard, better time management,
how to be a team player and work well with others, communication, and creativity. 
I may not have your most typical design experience, but I can promise you I would work hard and
would be a great addition to your team. The rest of my work history including full time positions, internships, 
and volunteer work can be found on my resume. 
What do you do in your free time?
I enjoy socializing with the people I love a care about. Whether it is my family, boyfriend, friends, or co-workers.
I am always ready to go out and so something! However, alone time is important too! 
But I also spend a lot of my time doing freelance, DIY projects or even exploring a new medium!

What are your strengths? How about your weaknesses?
My strengths are communication, leadership, copywriting, and conceptual thinking. My weakness is, sometime I get swept up in a big idea and some of the little details fall through. I combat this by forcing myself to spend a few extra moments at the end of every project to double check and make sure everything is the way it needs to be. Also, lists just help me out so much! 
Do you enjoy working alone or in a team?
I enjoy working on teams where ideas get bounced off of each other and people play into one another's strengths.
However, I do feel some parts of a project can be done individually and do enjoy those parts and projects as well.
