I'm Nicole Louisa Smith, and these are my collected works. I work professionally as a Designer, Art Director, and Illustrator which I've done freelance and in-house for more than eleven years.
I live in Los Angeles, CA and am currently the Assistant Art Director for Desert Daze, an amazing psychedelic music festival in Joshua Tree. Before that, I was an in-house Art Director at The Do LaB (an international event design agency) and their flagship festival, Lightning in a Bottle, for about five years. And before that, I spent seven years with the national retail chain, Guitar Center, Inc., in event marketing and advertising.
My passions lie in art and music, and I strive to make some form of artistic practice a part of my everyday life. I pride myself on being able to design within a wide variety of styles, while still retaining a distinctive "look" that is recognizably mine. I believe in putting a part of myself into every design I create and endeavor to meet a high level of artistic integrity with every piece.
I play heavy rock music. I don't eat animals. I prefer the rain. I think people should rely on their smart phones less and each other more. I have an affinity for odd numbers, especially the number three. My fingers are double-jointed. I almost always drive with the windows open. I like making new friends.
