Svend Smital was born in 1967. He trained as a bricklayer from 1984 to 1987 and then studied at the Berlin Academy of Art from 1991 to 1996.
Since graduating he has worked as a free-lance designer.
eBoy was founded in 1997 by Kai Vermehr, Steffen Sauerteig and Svend Smital with the acquisition of the eBoy.com domain. The basic idea driving eBoy was the embracement of the new possibilities of the emerging digital world. The decision to directly work on and for the screen led to the use of pixels. A modular based work system started to evolve and resulted in complex object rich artwork.
eBoy is lucky to have worked with some of the finest clients and partners. Among them are Adidas, Coca Cola, DKNY, Google, Kidrobot, MTV, Nike, Pepsi, Paul Smith, The New York Times, Wired Magazine, Yahoo! and many many more.
eBoy currently is based in Berlin/Germany and in Vancouver/Canada.
