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 since 2011. Over the past several years I’ve done assorted agency work – web design, graphic design, advertising – as well as 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.
