Kira Smith started her undergrad at Fort Lewis College in 2012 with the intention of studying fine art and business. After one graphic design class she found her true passion and her entire career path shifted to design. This new found curiosity led to winning gold in the brass ring 100 Art and Design competition for her billboard series, becoming a finalist in GoCode Colorado, and being a part of the AIGA Colorado Elevate Program. Now she has graduated from the graphic design program at Fort Lewis College a semester early, and will be starting graduate school at Chapman University in the fall to pursue a MA in film studies.
