I'm Lisa Smith
YOU MAY READ MY WEBSITE as a desperate plea for approval. I mean, after all, I have stuff like how I graduated from Portland State University with a B.S. in graphic design while making the Dean’s List (in the good way), have a shelf crammed with Envision, Imagination, ADDY and Drake awards (most of which I did not buy on eBay), and have worked for great ad agencies like Citrus and tbd advertising. But to think that it’s all an appeal for acceptance is ridiculous. It’s obviously a plea for money.
Jennifer Gray Beckman Co-Founder, Back Pocket Provisions
Lisa Smith has been my first call for design work for the past decade, as I have launched multiple businesses that each benefited from Lisa’s artistic talents. Between her modern, refined design skills and her unwavering professionalism, working with Lisa has been an overwhelmingly positive experience. I would not hesitate to hire her for any position that allowed her to showcase her design expertise, marketing acumen, and nimble team-management style.
Kathy Valenti Senior Content Marketing Manager at Rocket Fuel Labs
Lisa is by far one of the finest designers I have ever had the pleasure of working with. In addition to being an incredible conceptual thinker, she has a gift for print design and delivering exceptional client experiences time and again. I never miss a chance to work with Lisa!
Ron Paradis Director of College Relations at Central Oregon Community College
I first worked with Lisa in 1998 on a project that created great results for us at Central Oregon Community College. More recently, she redesigned all of our recruiting material and produced other brochures that far exceeded our expectations. The list of attributes offered all pertain to areas of excellence. She was great to work with and I hope to continue to work with her in the future.
Lori Patch Freelance Marketing specialist and project manager
Lisa is one of the best art directors that I know. She is not only an incredibly talented designer, but she is extremely organized, quick, personable, and can take input from a variety of sources to create a final product that brings it all together. Lisa and I worked together years ago at Citrus and she is on my top 4 list of art directors / graphic designers ever since. She is highly recommended.
Kevin Archer Former Partner/Creative Director at Citrus
Over the last 20 years, I’ve had the great pleasure to work with Lisa Smith as both an employee of Citrus, and as a freelancer once she started her own firm. She is passionate about great creative, fresh ideas and curious about all things design. She is naturally team-oriented but can also take control of any project when necessary. Along with her excellent skill sets, Lisa is also a quick study.
The best answer a former employer can give to “Would your hire her again?” is “absolutely.” She comes from a quality ad agency/marketing background. She is smart, forward-thinking and fun to be around.
