About me
Hey, I'm Jamie Smyth. I'm a designer interested in research driven, conceptual design. I studied Visual Communication in NCAD in Dublin and studied abroad for a semester in Aalto University in Helsinki.
Projects
  • Milck
    MilckProblem A brief to create a visual narrative of my choice for the MA Storytelling course in Aalto University of Art, Design & Architecture in Finland. Solution I created a 40 page comic book set in the near future, telling the story of a Dutch girl named Milck who emigrates to China for a better life. The comicbook questions the West’s reaction to the migrant crisis by portraying a European encountering the challenges of migration.
  • WDNSABSOOTBCNSBT
    WDNSABSOOTBCNSBTProblem Create an object exploring the difference between ‘designing’ something and ‘making’ something. Solution I reappropriated scans of the Scandinavian Design Report. The report, written in the 1960s, panned Irish design. I blocked out text leaving only the negative comments (which make up the majority of the report). The remaining text shows how hierarchical and subjective a definition of good design is.
  • The Change Lab
    The Change LabProblem Create an identity for The Change Lab, an exhibition and the exhibition book that deals with the question “What does it mean to teach and make art that is of and for our time?”. Solution Working in a team at Red&Grey, we created a visual system of spirographs, dot-matrixed photos and sketches done by participating artists. The book was designed with a modular layout that shifted elements around each page acknowledging the differences between the artists in the exhibition. Each group of artists were assigned a different stock and colour of paper reinforcing this concept.
