– About –
My name is Mark Smith, a British born-and-bred freelance designer, content creator and strategist, brother and pizza lover.
I am a London-based Content Creator and Social Strategist.
I work with brands to create both physical & digital narratives and experiences to captivate audiences and elevate a brand's online presence through the use of organically shareable social content.
My list of past clients include the BBC, Mercedes, Guinness, Twinings, Mars Inc, Department for Transport, Exxonmobil, Children in Need, Post Office, Creams Cafe, Hook Research, Shilbrook Services, Overview and many more.
"I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Mark and he has become a very valuable asset to not just our marketing team, but to any team he joins. He is honest, dependable, and incredibly hard-working.
Mark's knowledge of both Social Media and Marketing has been a huge advantage to our entire office. He helped us not only set up our Snapchat account, but managed to get a large following behind us and manages it for us on a day to day basis. He is reliable and very creative and with that he's made countless video's for both social media usage and for in-stores usage. When we had a partnership with Thorpe Park we had nobody to make a storyboard and create promo's for us. Mark raised to the challenge and out done himself.
Along with his undeniable talent, Mark has always been an absolute joy to work with. He is a true team player and without a doubt, I confidently recommend Mark as a dedicated and knowledgeable employee and an all-around great person!"
"We have had the pleasure of hosting Mark as an intern with Overview from June till September 2017. And a pleasure it has indeed been: Mark has spent one week with us in the office in Brussels and has spent the rest of his time working autonomously from England. He has show exceptional maturity, responsibility and efficiency in all aspects of his work, his attitude and his communication with us. Mark has been able to quickly capture the essence of our product, brand and marketing strategy and turn his understanding independently into visuals that both matched our requests and pleased our users. It is only logical that we have decided to continue to work with Mark and we hope that the relationship may last for a long time."
"Our industry can be hectic at times. To that extent, a video editor who can work quickly, efficiently, and independently is incredibly important – Mark is one of these people. Mark delivers superb videos in a timely manner, regularly communicating with us throughout the project to ensure that we are happy with the output. Not only are we always impressed with the videos Mark delivers, but our clients love them as well!"
"Although only with us for a week, Mark proved himself to be a skilled designer needing minimal supervision. Once briefed, Mark was able to adapt his great design aesthetic within our brand guidelines, producing high-quality work.
We wish him all the best in the remainder of his studies, and would highly recommend him for any business."
"Mark came into AMV for a month to work in the digital design department. He worked on a variety of clients including Department for Transport, Twinings and Exxon. He showed great attitude and aptitude, working on ideas from a brief up to final delivery. He was easy to work with, always available when needed to review work and very efficient at doing amends and updates to the work. He was very ordered with his files and able to pick up tips and suggestions on how to improve his technical knowledge of Photoshop and After Effects.
In short, a pleasure to work with and a reliable and strong member of the team."
"Mark came to Guinness World Records us for a week of work experience in July 2016 and impressed all of us while working with a large variety of projects and departments. His long list of tasks included designing book covers, laying out book spreads, editing video, arranging photographic material, working up marketing materials, assisting on our website and social media offerings as well as learning an awful lot about record breaking.
He is a very talented, creative and intelligent person who has a calm, efficient and professional approach that leads me to thoroughly recommend him for Creative/Design work anywhere."
"Mark demonstrated an organized approach to his work at CADA Design Group, starting with an initial story board and then progressing his ideas through to a final concept presentation. Despite the lack of work experience, age and qualifications at the time, Mark shows great promise for a future within graphic design as his interpretation of the initial brief and understanding of market position was very focused and relevant in today's food arena.
I have no hesitation in recommending Mark for further study and foresee a promising career ahead of him."
