PORT smith is published by Plainspoke, the graphic design office of Diane and Matt Ralph. Based in Portsmouth, the studio is focused on creating publications and printed matter for artists, photographers, galleries, museums and educational/cultural organizations. Examples of our work can be viewed at plainspoke.com.

For a few years we ran a gallery, The Parlor at Plainspoke, at our studio building on Sheafe Street in downtown Portsmouth. The gallery featured solo exhibitions, most of which included catalogs of various formats that we designed and published. This experience sparked our interest in curating and sharing the work of the many talented people from this area, and we see the publication of PORT smith as an extension of this interest.
