About TUT

I'm Sami, the girl behind this creative space I like to call The Unexpected Type. I currently call Redondo Beach, California my home with my fiance, Nathan, who you may also see as @venture.seeker  alongside our pup Cookie and two cats. We're often found on the road in our FJ Cruiser we've dubbed Zoe exploring.

We're ridiculously passionate about travel, camping and gathering experiences opposed to things. We've been overlanding and off-roading for almost two years and absolutely love it.  I come from a creative background of visual design, floral installations and graphic design, which I love incorporating into all of my work! It keeps things unexpected around here.

The Unexpected Type is a creative studio that focuses on creative adventure gear Nathan and I design, graphic, branding + logo designs, and illustrations for small business owners and entrepreneurs. Its also a blog where I share our travels and tidbits of our very unexpected life. We have an unexpected client base, from Hybrid Overland to Makers Mess. I adore working with new folks who are also out on creative adventures and am excited to work with so many more!
