ABOUT

I’m Graham Smith, founder of The Logo Smitha Logo & Brand Identity Design Studio, and home to his Logo, Brand Identity & Monomark Design Portfolios, and Design Blog.

My chosen path in Graphic Design & Print started way back in 1989, when I left school to start a 3 Year Apprenticeship at Manor Park Press.

 

After being made redundant the day after I completed my apprenticeship, I embarked on a journey that saw me work for: Print Companies, Design Studios and Marketing & Advertising Agencies.

 

My last full-time job was at Gemini Press Limited, where I worked for 10 years. I worked onwards and upwards to finally become the Senior Studio Graphic Designer, as well as the Studio Technical Manager of 20 designers and pre-press technicians.

 

After 10 years I left Gemini to set-up my own company: The Logo Smith, and this is where I find myself today.

 

Leaving the relative security of full-time job was scary, but it’s a change that I’m forever happy with.

 

Since leaving full-time education, I have accumulated over 27 Years Commercial Experience in: Logo & Brand Identity Design, Graphic Design, Typography, Reprographics, Photography, Advertising & Marketing, WordPress, SEO and Social Media.

 

I dedicate my time to working with local, and worldwide clients, on various styles of Logo & Brand Identity Projects.

 

Although I’d be hesitant to say I had a ‘design style’, if pushed I’d say I drift towards: clean, strong, minimal, geometric, cliché free with a strong typographic leaning.

 

If I can be of any help to you, either for commissioned Logo & Brand Identity work, or simply some sage advice, then I’d love to hear from you,
