Steve Smith

Owner, Creative Director, Father, Outdoor Enthusiast

Steve started as a copywriter and worked his way up to become Creative Director at some of the largest agencies in Pittsburgh before opening ity advertising. He considers himself fortunate to have been able to work alongside, and then go on to manage, some of the most talented creative people in the business. His experience includes a long list of national brands, regional companies and local businesses.

Steve is a constant source of fresh ideas with natural strategic insight and creative vision. He is known for coming up with the big ideas that move businesses and brands forward. Of course, around the house he’s just known as Dad, a title he’s more proud of than anything you’ll find on his business card.

In his free time, you’ll find Steve—if you look really hard—paddling a kayak or casting a lure on the Upper Allegheny River or a quiet lake closer to home.
