About Laura’s Design Studio
Let me tell you how Laura’s Design Studio started. This love of the design process has been the foundation of my 20 year career as an award-winning senior creative. After graduating with a degree in Advertising, I took on roles as Senior Graphic Designer, Supervisor of Graphic Services, and Art Director. I worked on projects designing packaging and print designs for Nokia in Latin America, corporate communications and training materials, magazine ads, direct mailers, and web banners for an in-house agency.
The next 14 years were spent at Kobie Marketing as a senior creative designing and developing creative strategies, managing a team (designers, copywriters and programmers), and collaborating with clients to deliver targeted creative designs through websites, emails, video, and print for local and national brands. I managed projects to develop design and loyalty solutions to some of the world’s most respected brands. (some are listed on the left).
These were fun years filled with creative passion to generate fresh design approaches that won multiple industry awards. Still, a part of me wanted something more, so using my experience in the Marketing and Advertising corporate world, I launched my own company in 2010.
Through Laura’s Design Studio, I manage designers, copywriters, and programmers and collaborate with clients to deliver targeted creative designs that are visually impressive and drive results. Our client’s range through a diverse scope including Solo Entrepreneurs, Small Business Owners, Community Organizations, and National Corporations.
It is incredibly rewarding to do this work. Working with Marketing Managers and Business Owners to bring their concepts to life and then having the opportunity to see those design put to work is incredibly fulfilling – Laura’s Design Studio is definitely the highlight of my career. I’m excited about the years ahead, applying my experience and skills to helping other companies gain recognition and grow.
When I’m not designing (in those rare moments) I enjoy travel and outdoor photography. Some of the photos you see throughout the Laura’s Design Studio website are pictures I have taken at beautiful locations throughout the United States.
