About me

An earnest, eloquent and detail-oriented entry-level designer coordinates with private and commercial clients. Driven around current affairs and culture, I use bright, unusual colours and texture in my images. I have expert knowledge of Adobe Creative Cloud such as Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator. Operating across digital and print platforms, I have skills in animation, teamwork and meet-ing tight deadlines. See more of what I do here: https://linktr.ee/laurenlovestudio
