About S. Oesterreich

How I Became Interested In Graphic Design And Marketing

Hello. My name is Sam Oesterreich (pronounced, 'a strike' as in, 'You bowled 'a strike!'). I was always intrigued by the direct mail pieces we would receive in the mail since I was a pre-teen (I think). I thought to myself, "Who creates and prints these things? Some of these are so neat looking!" So I decided to take classes at our local community college to be 'that person who created 'those' direct mail pieces. My interest in learning marketing came when I decided to distract myself from the worries of my son enlisted in the Marine Corps. Why marketing? I thought graphic design and marketing went hand-in-hand together, just like peanut butter and jelly! So I enrolled in a four-year university and took online classes on marketing. I now have duo degrees:
• Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S) Mass Communications: Desktop Publishing Graphic Design, Parkland College - Champaign, IL - 1997
• Bachelor of Science in Marketing, Franklin University - Columbus, OH - 2014

I've Become An Entrepreneur/Solopreneur.

With great excitement, I announce I've made Oesfreelancing Graphic Design an actual, registered business! Before this outstanding achievement, I've had full-time jobs as a graphic designer and marketing coordinator at print shops, an HVAC company, and most recently at an Ashley HomeStore. Sharing my love of graphic design with others has been a goal since I launched my website in the mid-2000s. Finally, as of May 13, 2021, my dream has become a reality. And I'm so excited to share this with all of you!
