Hey! It's

Dan Jae Smith. 
I'm a Graphic Designer based in Frederick, MD.

Beginning my career in print and publication design and later on in a full-service marketing and design agency, I am a Maryland-based graphic designer with over eight years of experience under my belt. I enjoy the collaborative nature of design and the impact that it can have on the community. 

Stick around and check out the range of projects in my portfolio below.
