  • Leah Smith
    FOUNDER + CREATIVE DIRECTOR + ART DIRECTOR + CREATIVE DESIGNER Leah has over 20 years experience in the graphic design and print industry, with a ture passion for design and telling stories as her driving force. ​With a Bachelors Degree in Visual Communication under her belt along with an Italian Scholarship from Monash University and experience in both agency and print houses, Leah sees a gap in the industry where people are struggling to execute a strong brand through consistency and cohesiveness, particularly in rural areas where the education and importance of good design lacks. Not only does Leah want to bridge the gap between client and good design in regional areas, she also see the importants of helping her fellow graduates to start learning about the importants of education and that space where good design is lost in smaller communities. Issues that just aren't taught through vocational education. By offering her Grad Program, Leah aims to help graduate graphic designers get the experience they need to land on their feet in those first industry roles with a whole lot of knowledge behind them. Driven by her own experiences, The Grad Program has been designed for rural graduates of a Visual Communication/Graphic Design degree to gain industry experience before stepping out into the "Real World" and those career changing roles.

Leah thrives on pushing boundaries and finding new creative ways for her clients needs. She is forward thinking and always looking at the bigger picture. There is always a story to tell, she dives right in and seeks the opportunites within. A mum of three, Leah is putting on ther Boss Lady pants and giving it a crack! " One day I would like to think I have made a differece, even a small one within the design community. This is such a saturated insdustry, if me and my agency can make even the smallest contribution to up hold the values and make sure we are valued as professionals I would be happy." - Leah Smith

Not afraid to take a risk and push boundaries with his design choices, Caylan brings a 'can do' attitude to all aspects of his work not matter how big or small the project.

We have been lucky enough to find each other here at Studio Whyte where each and every one of us brings something different to the table. We are a diverse bunch who don't take ourselves too seriously, but we are super passionate about what we do.

We are collaborators, we are a collective.
