self portrait

Sarah-Jean Smith. Fledgling designer, letterer, and typographer. Avid consumer of design books and late night grilled cheeses. Studied the intricacies of design and visual communication at UC Davis while having the incredible privilege of designing for student organizations and causes that are dear to me. I’ve been fortunate to work with Kawasaki, Nissan, Volvo, UC Davis, CrownCrafts, Jamba Juice, and more. I’ve been Humbled by awards from AIGA and UC Davis Department of Design, and by having my work displayed in galleries and public spaces. I am currently looking for new challenges in the design world. I want to create work that I am passionate about for equally passionate clients and learn from talented people who inspire me. You can find me eagerly practicing calligraphy or sketching letters at one of my favorite coffee shops in sunny Santa Monica, California—or feel free to contact me.
