Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $27

Hello, my name is Carmel Rose Smith, and in addition to being an exhibiting artist, Iíve been freelancing in illustration and design for some time.

My work tends to have a kind of handmade feel, even the computer-based work. The human element is coming through, and the result is perfect in its own weird little way.

Maybe your project or company is a bit like that? Maybe your idea is a bit off the beaten track? Perhaps you want people to feel the soul of the matter, even through things like business cards or logos?
