Creative Agency

Who We Are

Born and raised in St. Louis MO. Earl “Chip” Smith Jr. owns and operates Cross Grand, a creative agency located on the Southside in Dutchtown. The name Cross Grand derives from Chip’s deep roots in South City where he honed his skills as an artist beginning with music and eventually leading him to a variety of creative endeavors in narrative building, photography, videography, and other mediums.

Chip is the former lead MC for local hip-hop group 1 Dime. He applies the same rules to his artistic creation as he did back in the days of rapping, There are no rules! He continues to strive to be creative, have his own style, and be consistent in his efforts. Start working with our photography and videography company today!
