Who Wrote Eyes

Michael E. Smith

My name is Michael and I’m a visual designer with a passion for high-quality design and a knack for branding and art direction. I first realized my love for graphic art as early as middle school and have been nurturing this love ever since. Today, I’m an expert in design, branding and visual consistency. As a member of AWeber’s creative team, I thrive on visually presenting the AWeber brand while spearheading the company’s artistic direction. It’s more than just slapping a logo on everything; small visual details can make a big difference to consumers.

That is my professional life but personally I am passionate about applying my design knowledge to being a dad. There are so many products made for our kids that are ugly or poorly designed. I wanted to create this blog to share about the quality products I have found and why I think they are amazing. There will also be how-to posts, design & photography tips as well as the occasional personal anecdote.

I am married to my beautiful wife Lindsay and we have a beautiful baby girl, Juniper. We live in the suburbs of Philadelphia where I am a full-time graphic designer. In additional to this blog I enjoy carving wood spoons in my spare time.

What Has Michael E. Smith Said About Eyes

  • What were the biggest challenges to making Eyes a reality?

    The reality is that I didn’t think I had anything new to say/show. I didn’t feel like my illustration skills were good enough. And I felt like a book with only 10 words was a cop out. Once I overcame the resistance the next challenge was time.

    Working a full-time job, seeking professional growth, starting a family, plus burning the midnight oil to produce the book were the challenges that haunted me all the way through completion of the project.

  • We love Eyes! Can you tell us more about why you decided to create this book?

    I’m a full-time designer that spends a majority of my time creating digital assets. My heart and passion lies in the physical space though. There’s just something special about sending a design to print and calling it “done”.

    That mentality is what ultimately lead me to choose this medium to communicate with my daughter about the beauty and diversity of animal eyes.

  • How did you feel when you successfully reached your funding goal and you knew Eyes would be a reality?

    Emotional. I couldn’t believe that so many people supported this passion project of mine. I’m still in awe and so grateful for every single dollar that others gave to make this dream a reality.

  • How did you find time to create Eyes while working full-time as a graphic designer?

    It certainly wasn’t easy, but staying up long after the house was quiet was the only way to get it all done.
