HI, I’M LAUREN.
I began my business journey right after graduating in 2009 with my bachelor’s degree in Business (Marketing). I was working full time in a sales and marketing role, and that is where I found a love for designing, creating websites, and digital marketing. I opened up LR Design & Marketing on a part-time basis in the fall of 2010 and started building websites, creating flyers, and sending out email campaigns for small local businesses and it has grown and flourished since then.
The majority of my clients are small businesses, start-ups, and entrepreneurs, but I also am active in photography, web design, and graphic design work for personal occasions such as graduations, engagements, and weddings! I have so much fun working on a variety of different projects and being challenged in new ways keeps me growing as a designer.
LR Design & Marketing is now my full-time job, and I love every minute of growing my business and providing quality design and marketing for my clients.
When I’m not designing, I enjoy cooking (some of my favorite dishes are stir fry-s, anything that involved seafood, and classic spaghetti), going on hikes, reading all sorts of books from Fantasy to Finance, traveling, and crafting.
I live in Asheville, North Carolina with my husband Stephen and a 7-year-old fluffy Collie named Yoshi.
I’ve launched an entire blog all about my entrepreneurial journey. I write once a week on topics like running a business, travel, minimalism, hustling, and intentional living.
I love building creative websites, marketing plans, and branding designs that give my clients the ability to bring in the leads they need!
