Jolinda Smithson

I have worked as a Production Artist, Junior Designer, Web Designer and Senior Designer in several businesses throughout the Richmond area. I started my own freelance business where I worked for two years and have worked as a contract designer through a talent agency. Most recently, I joined a small design firm and I am one of two full-time employees. I became a professional mentor with the VCU CreateAthon onCampus when it began in 2008 and have been an Adjunct Professor in the School of Mass Communications since 2008. I attend AIGA and Richmond Ad Club meetings and informally serve as a mentor to many former students. In the last two years I have begun glass casting and in 2011 won a scholarship to the Corning Museum of Glass Studio School.
