Samia Ahmed is currently a Prop Designer at Titmouse Animation Studio.

As a creative partner, I excel in collaboration as means of working through ambiguity. I received my BFA and Master’s from Carnegie Mellon University, where I was an active participant in craft-based learning.

For early stages of collaboration, I find that illustration can be an effective tool to generate feedback and elicit ideas. For later stages, illustration can be an evocative way to clarify complex ideas & create emotional engagement.

In my work, I am particularly interested in themes of representation and sharing a diversity of view points through thoughtful and meaningful visual solutions.

I am available for freelance animation design and editorial illustration:
