Hello…I’m Laura, a graphic designer + art director, living in Saint Louis, Missouri with my husband, Thomas and our two sons, Jaxon and Casen. I’m obsessed with hats. I'm a collector of vintage cameras and stamps. I am a paper and typography lover. I enjoy traveling and trying new restaurants. Visit my baby + kids blog, Little Frills.
I'm a graduate from the University of Missouri–Saint Louis with a BFA in graphic design. For the past three years I have been working in the fashion/footwear industry, art directing and designing everything from web to print, as well as art directing the product and lifestyle photoshoots and leading social media for Dr. Scholl's Shoes. In addition to my full time job, I'm the lead creative director for a craft granola company, Oat My Goodness, working daily on email marketing and social media content. I also freelance for several baby and kids fashion brands, Bink & Boo, Westerly Commons and The Tiny Company. I own an online paper studio, Frills paper + goods, designing custom invitations and decor. I was an art director for nearly four years working in the B2B, Financial Services and CPG industries. Most of my experience includes identity, branding, advertising and promotional projects for large premium brands, such as Grey Goose Vodka, Martini and Capital One. My work has been published in Logo Lounge 6 and Parents Magazine. Some of my designs and typography have been featured on Type Fight, Martha Stewart Weddings, Hip Hip Hooray, Babble, Oh So Beautiful Paper, 100 Layer Cake and 100 Layer Cakelet.
