Lindsay Smith - Designer

Benicia, CA, United States

I enjoy helping others communicate their vision to attract their dream-client and increase profits.

Overview

Hi, I'm Lindsay, a Bay Area based graphic designer specializing in book design and page layout. My design experience is both in freelance and in-house production. I've worked with individuals, small businesses, and world-renowned companies. A few of the notable brands I've had the pleasure of working with include: Disney, Warner Bros., J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World, D.C. Comics, Marvel, Lucasfilm, and more. All clients are treated with high regard.

Whatever the size of the project, whether it's for an individual client, event, boutique, or corporate property, the process is the same. It is problem-solving to render a functional design, to evoke a feeling and garner response of the appropriate audience. I translate your vision through design and development to engage your target audience, increasing your profitability.

Let's collab!
