Meet Smyth Kowalczyk

smythWith over 12 years of experience bringing a modern, fresh approach to design, Smyth specializes in shopper marketing, digital illustration, responsive web design and concepting. He has worked with clients and brands such as Unilever, Hillshire Farm®. Brown Forman, People Magazine, Energizer®, AXE®, Degree®, POND’S®, Dove® and Suave®, to name a few. He has managed teams and motivated individuals with a relentless work ethic and reliable consistency. Smyth loves to connect the dots between creativity and brand strategy.
He is currently a Senior Art Director at IN Marketing Services, a shopper marketing agency in Norwalk, CT. Part of a team that’s occasionally loud, often chatty, but always talented. When not dreaming up logos or tweaking headlines, he can be found rolling out Play-Doh with his wife and three year old son. Oh, and it’s pronounced “Kuh-wall-zick.”

What others are saying

  • I have had the pleasure of working with Smyth on the SCALE team at Integrated Marketing. Smyth is a top-notch designer, with an exceptional ability to think strategically and produce high-quality designs that always exceed the expected. Additionally, Smyth is a level-headed Senior Art Director (manager) who has the situational awareness of turning a seemingly over-whelming project into manageable task.

  • Smyth is, perhaps, the most creative art director I’ve had the pleasure to work with. He is always thinking “out of the box.” He can conjure up a brilliant headline to match his equally brilliant design. That being said, he’s wonderful in the collaborative environment. I’ve seen his relaxed personal demeanor in the face of some of our toughest clients, and he always plays it cool. Smyth is a mutli-talented art director who has creative director written all over him. Any agency or company who hires him will be getting an enormous bang for their buck.
