Sam Kraus | Branding, Web + Graphic Designer

Sam Kraus is a designer of most things; branding, apparel, furniture, you name it he has either tried it or thought about it. Sam comes to us from Marine Layer where he spent the last two years as the senior men's designer for this fast-growing SF based apparel brand. Before that, Sam founded a brand development company focused on simple functional design and aesthetic. If Sam had to describe himself, he would say that he is an all-around Renaissance Man; he is just as comfortable grilling meat at the summer beach bbq as he is baking a three layer GF flourless chocolate cake for his girlfriend's birthday, rowing a boat as he is building a boat, drinking whiskey as he is making.... well you get the idea. Needless to say, Sam loves design through and through and is a Bay Area native.
