My name is Lauren and I am a web designer, photographer, graphic artist, and all around digital marketer. i love to cook, travel, and go on hikes all over the great state of North Carolina.
Yoshi is our furry office Collie. When Yoshi is not doing important office work, he enjoys long walks, lounging in the grass, and eating cheese.
I began my business journey right after graduating in 2009 with my bachelor’s degree in Business (Marketing). I was working full time in a sales and marketing role, and that is where I found a love for designing, creating websites, and digital marketing. I opened up LR Design & Marketing in the fall of 2010 and started building websites, creating flyers, and sending out email campaigns for small local businesses and it has grown and flourished since then.
The majority of my clients are small businesses, start-ups, and entrepreneurs. But while, I still do A LOT of design work for the business segment, I also am active in photography, web design, and graphic design work for personal occasions such as graduations, engagements, and weddings! I have so much fun working on a variety of different projects and being challenged in new ways keeps me growing as a designer.
When I’m not designing, I enjoy cooking (some of my favorite dishes are stir fry-s, anything that involved seafood, and classic spaghetti), going on hikes, reading all sorts of books from Fantasy to Finance, traveling, and crafting.
I live in Asheville, North Carolina with my soon to be husband Stephen and a 6-year-old fluffy Collie named Yoshi.
