Samantha Slade is RFA’s graphic designer. She has over 15 years experience in web and visual design, with extensive training in fine arts, digitization, user interface design and working with primary source material. Her undergraduate degree from a Buddhist university set her on a goal of attaining “right livelihood,” and allowed her to find her path as a specialist in design and communications for education and nonprofits. Projects have ranged from comprehensive website design, to branding and identity, to collateral for special events, to fundraising campaigns, and beyond. Her work is firmly rooted in an ongoing quest for authentic expression, and she believes that information carries more value in our visual culture when it is presented cleanly and elegantly. She is currently working on a brand refresh for the organization.
