I'm Dan Jae Smith.
Graphic Designer and Illustrator from Frederick, MD.

With almost a decade spent in print and publication design under my belt, as well as full-service marketing and design experience, I have thrived on the collaborative nature of graphic design and the impact that it has in my community. ​I love figuring out ways to create design solutions to best fit your needs and create eye-catching end results.
