Yellow Specs Design was founded by Jess Smith in 2012 after eight years of experience at a Nashville Design Firm. Named after Jess’s trusty, yellow, Kate Spade glasses that every design is seen through, Yellow Specs prides itself not only on it’s unique, visual perspective but on hearing every client’s individual needs before beginning the design process.
Today, Yellow Specs works with a wide range of clients from local startups, to national companies including Ambrose Printing, Aquinas College, Bridgestone, Foxland Harbor Country Club and Servpro.
Jess earned a Bachelor of Arts in Strategic Communication from the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. She currently resides in historic Franklin, TN with her husband, two children, dog and cat. Jess serves as the Department Chair for the School of Graphic Design at O'More College of Design where she helps young designers develop skills needed to set the pace for the future of design. When she’s not teaching classes, Jess spends time fixing up her 1930s bungalow and volunteering with the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.
