CD Austin’s owner, Codie Smith, was TEL’s senior graphic designer in the US from 1999-2007 — the year Codie began CD Austin as his full-time employment. He continued supporting TEL’s marketing efforts as a design contractor through 2013.
Working with counterparts in Asia and Europe, the TEL Marketing Communications team was, and still is, a world-class creative firm. They produced materials in-house that competitors spent millions hiring out to agencies. With Codie’s help, marketing materials were published in 16 different global technology markets and in five languages.
Some of Codie’s favorite projects at TEL were the trade shows. Art, architecture, and technology all come together to create a unique user and customer experience. Here is a small peek at the exhibit work produced during Codie’s tenure at TEL.
