Design Creative Of The Week: Sam Smith [Visual Communication]
The hottest new talent of the week brought to you by PSFK x Arts Thread. This week we share inspiration from a graphic designer influence by vintage sports brands.
In this week’s edition of our series of ‘Creatives of the Week’ chosen from ARTS THREAD’s graduate portfolios, we take a look at the specialisms of visual communication and highlight the portfolio of Sam Smith, a 2011 graduate of Winchester School of Art.
Why we like Sam: We like Sam’s fresh apprach to sports branding, with an emphasis on vintage aspects. Sam comments on his projects:
Within my graphic work I love to work closely with typography, and find new ways in which I can use it to convey a message. When I’m not in the studio I spend a lot of time playing and watching sports, which is why I have a great interest in design for sport. I have also always been influenced by vintage football memorabilia which greatly influences my working style.
