I'm Laura - Nice to Meet You.
I have had a long love affair with design, although I got my start in journalism. I moved to Quito, Ecuador to work as a travel writer after finishing my bachelor's at UNC Chapel Hill. But I couldn't stay clear of the visual arts, and after a year in South America I packed my bags for San Francisco, where I earned a master's in web design and new media from the Academy of Art University.
After graduating I moved, yet again, to Austin, where I have been happily situated as a since 2011. Over the past several years I've done a mix of agency work - web and graphic - and freelance. When I'm not hunched over a computer, you can bet I'm out soaking up the Austin sunshine at the Greenbelt or cooking up a new creative side project.
I believe that excellent design should do more than reproduce the latest trends; it should reflect my client's values and highlight their unique services and products. My priority is to provide excellent, affordable design and give back to the community whenever possible. Offering a flexible pricing structure and "Do-Gooders' Discount" is my way of making high-quality design more accessible to everyone.
The Do-Gooders' Discount:
Do you work for a non-profit or other organization that seeks to better the community? That's awesome! I'd love to offer you a discount of 20% or more off my standard rates to support your good work.
