Bio

SAMANTHA CORTEZ-PRIMO’S DESIGNS STAND AT THE FOREFRONT IN VISUAL EXPRESSION; STREAMLINING URBAN CULTURE WITH CONTEMPORARY CONCEPTS. SUPPORTING AND REPRESENTING PROFESSIONAL AND EMERGING ARTIST ALIKE.

Samantha Cortez-Primo is a photographer and graphic designer based out of Brooklyn. With a Bachelor degree in Graphic Communication, Samantha has spent eight years perfecting her visual aesthetic which encompasses techniques from performance art and graphic design principles.

Samantha lives her life indulged in the creative field. At the age of eight she danced Hip-Hop for Herbert Von King Community, spent her teenage years performing spoken word poetry at venues like Nuyorican Cafè, and participated in over 60 shows with the Creative Arts Team, a non-profit youth organization that used improv to create compelling theatre that touched on social issues.

Samantha continues to learn, create, and embrace new opportunites as they come. She is a student of life, oberving and analyzing verything around her for inspiration.

I am a dreamer, so I choose to live my life in the pursuit of making my dreams reality–this is reflected in my works of art.

I like to tell stories, lyrically and visually.

I celebrate all life–and every life has a story.

I do what I love and I love what I do. I hope that you do too.

My Projects

Storyboards

Storyboards

I illustrated and created the body copy for six Jersey Italian Gravy commercials as a campaign execution for my Communication Design 2 class. The storyboards showcase a typical Italian family and the special occasions where Jersey Italian Gravy becomes a necessity. I used a humorous tone to appeal to the target audience of 18-40 years old, who are big on traditions, and have big families. I conceptualized a storyboard for Tiffany’s jewelry focused on a husband and wife, and the significant moments that are treasured, like a beautiful diamond necklace should be treasured.
