"I'm a hands on designer who's just trying to build things that last."



Hello, My name is David M. Smith. The Blksmith Design Co. is a one man show I run out of San Francisco. Specializing in lettering, illustration, identity, and building work that lasts. I'm a firm believer in quality over quantity and the beauty of crafting by hand.
