Samyu Murali holds an M.A in Advertising from Savannah College of Art and Design, Atlanta and graduated in 2016. Originally from Chennai, India, she is currently an Art Director at Wunderman in Austin, Texas.

She is a strong believer in creating work that is thought provoking, memorable and, most importantly, helps the people around us. She'd probably describe her personal brand as a mix of 90's cartoons, a crippling caffeine dependency and a lifelong vendetta against the un-ironic usage of Comic Sans. 

When she's not pushing pixels, Murali enjoys breakfast food, hikes through national parks, puns and taking way too many photos. She's always looking for new collaborators, so go on and shoot her an email if you're interested.
