AMANDA SMITH began her design career in New York City at the remarkable agency Baron & Baron. She worked years in luxury brand fashion advertising, fragrance and cosmetic packaging with companies such as Burberry, Calvin Klein, Balenciaga, Armani, NARS and the like.
Now for nearly a decade A. Smith & Co., an arts and graphics studio, has continuously developed with projects for well-known companies like Limited Brands, Bath & BodyWorks, Coty, and Sony along-side smaller firms, startups, non-profits, writers and musicians.
Eventually partnering with illustrator WILLIAM KOZAK, a MIAD graduate and graphic designer himself, our little studio relocated to Austin, Texas. We continue to expand into creative ventures like graphic novels, book covers, illustration and screen printing. Loving collaboration, our studio is frequently enlisting fellow artists, photographers and writers to keep the A. Smith & Co. products fresh and creative.
The A. Smith & Co. approach is that of clear communication, with our clients and collaborators, a diligence to the project and its deadlines, and an absolute commitment to quality. We’ve found the most successful and efficient projects share clarity and cooperation between client and designer. Thus far, our clients agree.
