ADAM SMITH

Brand Strategist

What makes me qualified to help you? Why should you consider me? I have over 20 years of experience in sales, retail management, and design, and I have track record of growing sales in every business I've operated. I'm confident that I can help you do the same.

Also, I'm easy to work with. My professional experiences have enabled me to develop exceptional organizational and time management skills. I am a self-starter, adaptable, flexible, and I have impeccable attention to detail. I maintain excellent communication with my clients, work with them in a collaborative way, meet tight deadlines, and provide frequent status updates.

I have formal training in Fine Arts, Media Arts, Animation, and Graphic Design, and I have extensive experience in business working in leadership roles for major companies.  I LOVE branding, because it allows me to merge my business expertise with my artistic talent and help small businesses win!
