“I can't recommend my designer, Lauren, highly enough. She was wildly imaginative and intuitive and deeply understood how to represent not only my ethos but my art. Highly recommend her to other creatives.”  

— Joy Sullivan

kind words from our lovely clients

"Lauren knows exactly how to push you without being pushy and knows how to bring the best out of you. She knows how to make the whole process so fun! I dreaded sitting down, brainstorming about branding and would get stuck for hours by myself. Lauren knew the right questions to ask and you can tell she genuinely enjoys it, too. Nothing is better than the opportunity to work with someone whose passion aligns with their work. This work is her passion."
— Reina | Ottotto

kind words from our lovely clients

“I didn’t realize that our impact, in terms of helping families and empowering women in developing nations, could be illustrated, but Lauren brought our vision to life! Many of these women we work closely with got a bit emotional when they saw the new designs, as for the first time they felt truly seen.”

— Samir | EcoSoap 

kind words from our lovely clients

“Lauren is a gem and a pleasure to work with! She truly feels like a member of the team. I love that my website can work for me now. Previously, my website felt like a landing page filled with work that I had accomplished—sort of like a digital resume. Now my website SELLS my services and events.” 

— Fatima | IndieSoulGlow

kind words from our lovely clients

“Before working together, I did not know my own brand... so how would someone else be able to define it? Lauren's worksheet helped ease my fears and work through finding my brand. On my website, I'm finally getting requests for murals and the forms are helping people share all I need to know to get a quote started for them.”  

—Kaitlin | K Chow Studios

kind words from our lovely clients

“I was nervous about trusting my visual brand with someone else but Lauren was absolutely wonderful to work with. She took the time to really talk through my inspiration images and help me hone in on who my target audience is. She had an amazing grasp on how to translate what was in my head into a branding scheme. I felt relaxed, confident and in good hands!”

— Amanda | Amanda Viens 

kind words from our lovely clients

“I loved working with Lauren! She completely understood my vision, and paid special attention to my company’s overall branding so that she could reflect it through my new site! She made the entire process seamless. I constantly get compliments on the new site!”
