Sam Winfield (that’s me) is a digital designer from Philly, now living in NYC. I specialize in developing strategic, accessible design systems and digital products. Right now, I'm working as a Product Designer at Manhattan Hydraulics.

I like making things that are modest and useful. I’m currently listening to 75 Dollar Bill.
