My name is Joel Smythe. I’m a graphic designer by trade. I have been providing agency quality freelance graphic design services to business owners, creative agencies and non-profit organizations since May of 2000. I do business as the The Graphics Lab. I specialize in creative overflow… in other words, I provide true freelance graphic design and creative production design, for advertising agencies and in-house marketing departments using industry standard design software. Recently I moved my business from Middle Tennessee to Mid-Ohio. What will we create together?

This was a fun motivational poster series I designed for a company years ago. It was used internally with their employees. Anyway, I saw it and thought it would be fun to share again.

Finalized the 4th of 5 motivational posters for an international juice company today.
