Hello! I’m Laurie, a freelance senior production designer and retoucher/finisher with over 20 years experience. I like to think I bring something unique to the projects I work on and the people I work with, as I’m caring, intuitive and empathic. With a big picture perspective, I turn words into experiences through the skillful use of typography, layout, images and color. I’m creative and collaborative and, with a passion for design, my style is clean, warm and elegant. I’m calm, cool and collected and can handle just about anything. A natural problem solver, I’m inspired by the work, the people, and most importantly, the possibilities.  I’m based in Los Angeles, but work remotely with clients all over the country.
