I'm a designer with over 5 years of experience designing brands and websites for passionate people with big goals and dreams. 

I believe that the best way to learn is by doing—whether it’s design or anything else. I believe in my clients because I know what it is like to build something from the ground up and the hard work and the passion it requires. 

I live in Northern Michigan with my husband Drew, and we're currently renovating a 1890's Victorian fixer upper about three minutes away from Lake Michigan.

When I’m not at my computer, I love trying new recipes, reading non-fiction, decorating and spending time with my family.

a few random things

I have this funny fascination
with all things llamas.

When I was younger I wanted to be the next martha stewart (Not even joking.)
i still think it would be kinda fun.

my now-husband asked me to marry him after knowing each other for two weeks. Best decision of my life.

I absolutely love reading books, especially non-fiction, self-help, classics and faith-based books. I occasionally throw something random from another genre as well to keep it interesting.

kindness is always the best way.

Today is a good day to start.

dream big.

Wherever you are, be all there.

" I loved working with Lauren! She took my wide-ranging ideas and created a polished brand for me that fits the feel of my small business now, but has sophistication and a timeless look that will also work with my company as it continues to grow in the future.

She also took the time to work through my ideas objectively and explain what would work best from a design standpoint, something that helped me make the right choice when it came to nailing down a final style." 

Lydia Carns,  The Illustrated Life

"Branding has completely changed the way I make decisions in what I share and represent my business with. 

I’ve gotten SO many compliments on the visible look of everything. 

But the invisible benefit is truly confidence in knowing that I can feel good about sharing those things now." 

Candice Hart,  Pollen & Pastry

"Lauren is patient, easy to work with, and has fantastic design ideas! 

Every time she presented me with design elements it looked professional, polished, and of course styled.

It was like Christmas every time I saw an email from her in my inbox! It’s so pretty and a dream come true!" --Lex
