PROFILE/RESUME
Steven Smith  
Graphic Design
Drury University
 
I am a graphic designer from Springfield, MO and just finished a B.S. Degree in graphic design at Drury University. I also hold an A.A.S. Degree in graphic design from Ozarks Technical Community College and have worked in the field of graphic design as a freelancer, screen printer, part-time/seasonal graphic designer and teacher over the last ten years.
Though my primary focus is on package design, illustration, publication and page layout, I also enjoy working in and learning all aspects of design and find myself eager to gain more hands-on experience in the field outside of the classroom.
