Samira's grandmother taught her the fundamentals of penmanship at a young age, which later became a love for lettering now seen throughout her work. As a kid she loved to design for herself and family members, starting with Pokemon and Hello Kitty fan sites. She loved design and the web so much she asked her parents to buy the domain, dark-thiry.com. When she was able to actualize her passion, she enrolled at FIT where she majored in Packaging Design. Since then Samira's worked with big and small clients across the web. She's is now the Art Director at Seattle based startup, Flowroute.
