We are Jolyon Smith and Dionne Benjamin-Smith, a husband and wife team who always wanted to work together creatively. After thirteen years in the work force where we garnered invaluable character- and skills-building experiences, we both felt it was time to join our unique talents together and bring into existence an idea long in the making. Our dream of a more personal and unique art & design business was the birth of SMITH+BENJAMIN. With over 25 years of combined creative experience, we offer a perfect balance of diverse ideas, extraordinary talents and design fundamentals for every project we take on.
