Samantha Dempsey

Experience Designer
Samantha is a designer, illustrator, and innovator who lives in the gray area where art and science combine. She found her way into experience design through her background as an illustrator and her love of medicine and healthcare. Paintings of bacteria turned into design for kits to collect visual patient narratives at the Mayo Clinic. Samantha’s passion for the design in science was made clear by her team win at the Boston Children's Hospital Hackathon.

Since she can’t redesign our country’s entire healthcare system (just yet), Samantha plans on starting a bit smaller…by collaborating with other Mad*Powers to bring new perspectives to experience design.

Samantha came to us from RISD (Rhode Island School of Design) where she researched, conducted interviews, wrote, and illustrated articles relating to RISD life. She was part of the Brown/RISD-backed Design for America team and her illustrations and articles have also been published in various other blogs and print magazines.

Samantha’s passion goes further than illustration and collaborative design. She is a self-confirmed chocolate addict as well.
