Here at Tom Smith, our designers and creatives work all year round to design beautiful Christmas crackers, wrap and cards. We love celebrating our staff and their talents, so this summer, meet our designers!
We’ve heard from Matt Jones, Jolene Pierce, Sarah Callis and Esther Young, and this week it’s the turn of Caroline Lewis.
