About

Peter Skwiot Smith is a Minnesota-based product designer & artist. Currently employed as the senior manager of product design at Ameriprise Financial, he strives for elegant, accessible & brand-focused digital experiences.

When not on the corporate clock, he focuses his design efforts on supporting artists/-isans & non-profits.
