Samia Saleem, currently in exile from L’isle d’Orleans, resides in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. She is a visual designer with focus on web and interactive projects and has worked for companies large and small across the globe. Samia was spotlighted in the Jan/Feb 2008 Communication Arts’ Fresh section. Her work has also been featured in Beautiful Decay’s Anthology, Curvy and Design is Kinky. In 2007 she self-published a post-Katrina postcard anthology entitled Degrees of Separation. Currently, Samia is appalled by New Yorkers constantly evacuating their nasal cavities in close proximity to her. Disgusting.
