a designer working with Google. San Francisco is my heart & home. <3
Since 2014, I’ve been running my own design studio! I get to work with clients like Airbnb, Apple, Facebook, and OpenTable creating thoughtful product experiences for billions of people. It’s pretty much the best.
From 2011-2012, I was building about.me from scratch with wonderful humans. In 2012, I left startup life to design products and conduct research at Smart Design for clients like Samsung and HP.
Somewhere in the middle, I was co-leading a design education company called The Secret Handshake. From 2013-2015, I was organizing sold-out conferences for 200+ design students in San Francisco, Chicago, and New York at venues like Adobe and ADC.
At this point, my portfolio is pretty out of date. What would I even put in it? Gradients I made for Apple? I dunno, here's the book I made about a year ago :)
If you want to talk shop, that’s so awesome. I’m a little busy right now, and still open to getting emails from nice-cool-smart folks.
BRB, building the future!
“Laura is a delight. She’s well-spoken and has a great energy that she can bring to bear on projects and a team. She’s strong at ideation and connecting research to concepts and insights. She’s worked on a variety of projects, from web to devices to mobile, and is always willing to pitch in and help whenever she can. She’s always eager to improve and learn, which is one of her great strengths.”
