Andy Smith studied illustration at The Royal College of Art, London. His work combines illustration and typography to create images that have humour, energy and optimism- executed with a hand made, hand printed, tactile feel. His client list includes Nike, Sony PSP, Orange, The Guardian, McDonalds, Channel 4, Mercedes and Penguin Books. He splits his time between working commercially and getting inky producing a range of screenprinted books and prints. He lives and pretends to work by the sea in Hastings, UK.
