Hall Smyth

Perpetual entrepreneur Hall Smyth has owned and operated numerous companies in a diverse array of subjects. He is founder and co-owner of GO and at GO he has specialized in print and exhibition design with a focus on public education and the development of identity. Hall is a graphic designer by trade from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, but at GO he also manages materials acquisition and project construction.

Most recently, Hall created the materials reclamation company Green Pallet, a complement to his development and barn construction business Lumberland Post & Beam. The work of LP&B was featured in GO’s first exhibition, Barn For Sale. Hall spends most of his time dismantling and finding new uses for recycled products. These have found their way into multiple GO exhibitions and in various installations and renovations for GO clients. The car from our DRV-IN exhibition is parked at his house. Our floors are from his upstate warehouse. This is just the tip of the iceberg.

Hall was Art Director of The New Press from 1996-2000 and the design firm he founded, BAD, has collaborated with artists and designers on book and exhibition projects for clients including The New Press, Simon and Schuster, The Free Press, W.W. Norton, Doubleday, TVBooks, Storefront for Art and Architecture, Distributed Art Publishers, PublicAffairs, The Tenri Gallery, Monthly Review Press, Bard College, John Wiley and Sons, and Marsilio Publishers. From 1993-1996 Smyth was Senior Designer at Design/Writing/Research. Smyth’s clients included the Whitney Museum, Princeton Architectural Press, Smithsonian Institution Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, The National Building Museum, Dance Ink magazine, Print magazine, Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology, and the International Center of Photography.

He might be old, but he still has loads of ideas.
