Hi there, I’m Lauren, a Creative Director and Brand Consultant. I help purposeful businesses and brands tell their story through visual and written mediums.

My approach to brand development and design is both creative and analytical: based on logic, backed by research, brought together with a dose of imagination and inspiration.

I received a B.A. in Journalism from the University of Missouri – ranked the best journalism school in the U.S. – where I studied Strategic Communication and Business with an emphasis in Art Direction.

I have perspective from three sides: as a consultant working with purpose-driven brands in diverse industries, as a creative strategist working in an award-winning agency setting, and as the founder of a socially impactful business with customers across six continents. My experience allows for a holistic perspective—focusing on the details while simultaneously thinking of the big picture.

I specialize in building brands from the ground up—defining the DNA at the core of a brand, architecting an empathetic identity from that DNA, bringing the identity to life through language and visual design, then executing a strategy to integrate it into a holistic and impactful brand experience.

The qualitative result is a empathetic connection between a brand and its audience and the quantitative result is progress toward real and positive impact. I believe that connection of people

Please explore my portfolio of brands I have crafted and projects I have created for clients – big and small.

Let’s chat!
