Graphic Design is in my blood. I have been working in the business since I was a little girl. My father, Sam Smidt is a well-known Bay Area Graphic Designer and taught at San Jose’ State University for many years. I spent time as his student and design assistant. Following design school, I worked for several top agencies in Los Angeles. Currently, I work in San Francisco as an independent contractor, to develop company branding and promotional materials.
