A former Sergeant of the US Army, Justin Smith possesses a degree of discipline one might not readily associate with the creative arts. Committed to building a successful career in digital communications after two tours in Iraq, he earned a BA in Graphic Design, an AD in Commercial Photography and soon landed a key position with the in-house marketing agency of retail giant, Menard’s. Since then, he’s earned the Communications Arts Award of Excellence for custom typography design, built a commercial photography business focused on regional brand work, and even developed some serious skills in relief woodcarving. All of which help Justin see the world differently and create digital destinations that showcase clients in dramatically new ways.
Justin currently resides as the Sr. Visual Designer at Modern Impact, an advertising technology agency located in Minneapolis, MN.
