Will Smith became known as a contestant in season two of the HGTV reality series Design Star. He is a native of Charlotte, North Carolina and earned a Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice and African-American Studies from the University of North Carolina. He then found work as an entrepreneur and an interior designer. He says that a designer’s best friends are a digital camera, a clipboard and tape measure, and that his secret weapon is wood.
Amongst his other favorite styles are contemporary, transitional, and Afro-centric designs. His favorite designer is Clodagh, and his favorite room to design is a bedroom. He also claims to be capable of extreme multitasking, and his dream design project would be an entire yacht. His childhood dream was being able to fly, and he also considers himself highly spiritual. When he’s not at work, he enjoys traveling or spending time with his friends and family, and enjoys locations with scenic views and few people.
On the series Design Star, Will Smith became one of the top three finalists. He has since appeared on Discovery Channel’s Surprise by Design Valentine’s Day Special. He also continued his work as a designer, working for Interior Motives.
