Sussed Co. is a New York based creative studio with roots firmly fixed in deliciously lo-fi beautifully printed concepts and communication.
Founded by Sam Smith, an award winning creative consultant and event producer, we have no interest in digital data dramas or socially hectic media. We offer our clients, private and brand alike, a custom mix of simple original illustrated art, portraiture, Limited Edition Giclée prints and Sussed Co.rrespondence (postcards are the new post!) to uplift both walls and perspectives.
Sam holds a Batchelor of Arts (Honors) degree in Fashion Promotion and Illustration from The Surrey Institute of Art & Design & University for the Creative Arts, and Accessory Design from Parsons, The New School, New York. A creative and holistic multi hyphenate, she also holds professional certifications in Holistic Health Coaching, Life Coaching and diplomas in Mindfulness, Meditation, Sleep Consultancy, Color Therapy, Crystal Therapy and Aromatherapy - the results of which are evident in the 28 Day Outlook + Energy Kickstart - a reviving reset for the creative and holistically frazzled.

She once, almost nearly, did a job swop with the infamous Banksy. Her task was to paint pink hearts over London. His was to spend her creative events budget for Diesel Jeans. Sadly, all plans were scuppered in the name of sensibility from above. She learned never to trust sensibility from above and credits this philosophy with some of her greatest personal and professional achievements to date.
Also a writer, Sam’s Modern Life Coaching book ‘Suss the Symmetry’ is available at Amazon.
