About the Founder
Brandon Smith grew up on a wheat farm in Kansas.
Since joining Local #829 as a computer artist in 2006, Brandon’s 30 year experience with graphics and his penchant for period details landed him jobs as key graphic artist on projects like White House Plumbers, The Town, American Hustle and At Home With Amy Sedaris. His work in art departments garnered him three Art Director’s Guild nominations (but no wins…sniff sniff) for The Irishman, American Hustle and The Town.
A self-described typeface super-nerd, Brandon received his MFA in Design for Film and Stage from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. After graduation, he was asked to join the faculty as an adjunct professor and taught Photoshop for Designers and Introduction to Production Design for three years before migrating to Boston, MA in 2008. He now lives in Western Massachusetts.
