Jeremy Smith
I have a wide range of experience and will bring all of this to the table on any job. By doing
this it has afforded me to win multiple Addys, to be printed in HOW Magazine and to win
several other awards. Working with clients as big as the NBA, NFL, NIKE, and ADIDAS to
small budgeted companies, I still manage to create impressive design that not only pleases
the client, but also grabs attention of the correct audience. I started with fine arts, then
began working my way into design, bringing anything I could from one to the other.

Senior Interactive Art Director
Most of my time as an Art Director at BFG was dealing with only one client. This might not
seem like much, but it was the agency's largest client making up more than 40% of the
agency's income. This kept me and the team very busy. We worked on a range of programs
that included sweepstake activations, a closed community with legal age gating and a wide
wide range of gaming and interactive activities.

RARE Design
12 / 2006 - 06 / 2011
Senior Designer
Worked with a wide team of copywriters, project managers, grips, Creative Directors,
Directors of Photography, blah blah blah… I worked at RARE for 11+ years and we did a
TON of work. I was highly involved with this company from the beginning. From sports
companies (Nike, Adidas, etc) to Teams (Texans, Grizzlies, 49ners, etc) to hospitals to
alcohol to hunting lodges… we were all over the place and in a good way.
RARE Design
2000 - 2006
The owner of Rare afforded me a lot of creative liberty. I took as much advantage of this as I
could. I would jump up to the opportunity to do photography, video work, sound design,
interior design, you name it. I found that I could apply my design instincts to just about any
medium and find a way, or a person, to help with what I didn't know. Rare also allowed me
to be closer to the client and more involved in the process than other agencies might have.
With all this I quickly grew the trust of the owner and was on every project as a designer and
became the standard in house photographer.
