Hello, I'm Lauren!
I'm a graphic designer and marketing professional based in Philadelphia. Recently, I've started my own practice and am available to assist you with your design needs!
Prior to this new venture, I’ve helped many clients and in-house teams reach their design and marketing goals. I’ve also managed a marketing team as a Creative Manager. I graduated from Moore College of Art & Design, where I studied graphic design, printmaking, and business.
Now I focus on work that gives me the opportunity to exercise my skills in graphic design, web design, and illustration, as well as gain experience in social media management and various marketing initiatives. My skills extend to silkscreen and letterpress, as well as, experimental image making, photography, and fine arts. My marketing experience includes community management, building business partnerships, and campaigns on and offline. For three years, I was involved in the Business Scholar in the Arts program at Moore, which guided and provided us with the tools to become successful entrepreneurs. This provided me with skills beyond my general graphic design degree, instilling an interest in the marketing end of things, and lead me down the path to running my own business!
When I'm not designing I can be found playing with pups, including my pug, Rocko, exploring in nature, riding my bike, and experimenting in the kitchen.
I provide these design services & more:
• infographics • Reports • Brand Identity • Business Cards • Brochures • Media Kits • Book Layouts • Illustration
• Social Media Design • Community Management • Web Graphics
