.psd is the design studio of graphic & motion designer Paul Smith

I work with a diverse range of clients from start-ups to established businesses

From creating explainer animations for educational institutions and helping to create brand identity and promotional graphics for the food and drink sector, I don’t limit myself to one creative field. This allows me to develop skills in design, motion and illustration, which opens up incredible opportunities to work with an ever-increasing variety of clients. The creative process can be very demanding but there is nothing more rewarding than achieving a client’s design requirements, whatever they may be.

Teaming up with .psd means that you work directly with me throughout the entire process. This encourages a closer relationship, achieving the very best creative outcome

Every brand or business is different and therefor a unique approach is taken for every assignment. Depending on your requirements, I work in collaboration with a wide range of like-minded creatives including web designers, illustrators, photographers and copywriters to ensure that you have the right team and skillset to achieve your branding goals.

A little more about me

In addition to design work, I love to create artwork by developing imagery found in unusual patterns, textured elements, colourful palettes and typographic components

These abstract digital collages are rooted in street culture. Ongoing exploration and experimentation provide me with an exciting creative outlet, helping to further develop useful skills and often inspiring ideas for client work.
