Formerly Bosco Ink, Samantha B. founded Creative Medium® in 2007, to serve those clients with businesses of alternative vision. “My clients often feel as if they are “called” to do their work.” With the current climate, we are bearing witness as more people, out of necessity, have redefined how they earn a living by tapping into something more creative within themselves. “There is a definite need for this niche in the advertising and marketing world,” Samantha explains, “advertising firms are out of reach for smaller businesses and often don’t take this type of client seriously.” As more people are driven to being creative entrepreneurs, there is an increasing need for an approachable way to create branding, messaging, client managed websites, easy social media management, but most of all, spirit in business!
Among Samantha’s artistic influences, she calls on the works of, Edward Gorey, Tim Burton, 1970s album covers, Peter Max, Gustav Klimt, Alex Grey, Henri Matisse, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Mark Rothko, Alphonse Mucha, her mother, her maternal grandfather, Linda Goodman and many others.
“I believe strongly in the power of co-creation, and help illuminate the SPIRIT in your business.”

Yep, she has a few of those lying around collecting dust.
She considers herself a hippie child. Having been born to young parents and growing up in the 70’s grooving to the Beatles, Led Zep, and Pink Floyd, how could she be anything else? The innovative art of the era has remained her main influence.
Posters promoting concerts in the 70s were designed to confuse parents, but the hippie kids knew to look deeper into the images to find the specific information hidden within. “I’ve always loved art that makes you work to find hidden meanings.” That’s why Samantha puts personal touches into everything she designs.
She says, “I mean, look at this stuff!”
