Origin Design & Media
Origin Design & Media is the design experience of graphic designer Meeja Ritchie Smith. I have more than 20 years in custom screenprint illustration, vast experience in sign design working with custom three dimensional signs and structural mock ups, and a variety of successful print media. Today Origin Design & Media clientele includes popular restaurants and salons, high-end property managers and local estate owners. We will personalize and develop your project through distinctive design style combined with cutting edge technological resources.
Origin Design & Media creates unique, expressive and dynamic visual collateral for businesses—from small projects for self-employed business owners simply looking for first-time business cards, logos or brochures to introduce themselves—to restaurants and tourist attractions seeking larger-scale brand identity through posters, menus, logos, invitations, sign design, and more.
The primary focus at Origin Design & Media is on identifying your needs and producing the work that delivers a clear message about the unique direction you want to take, and the goals you wish to achieve. We work with you to identify your advertising or branding goals and then to accomplish them.
My "official" design education consists of a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Savannah College of Art & Design with an award for Outstanding Achievement in Illustration. My lifelong "world art" education took shape when I traveled in Europe for studies abroad with wood engraving classes in London at Camberwell University and the study of Baroque Architecture in Italy. In addition to my formal accomplishments as an awarded artist I bring this experience and knowledge as the creative force behind Origin Design & Media.
