Lauren’s journey into graphic design started nearly 10 years ago when she was interning at a health club in Metro-Detroit. Part of the job required her to create advertisements and signs for the clubs upcoming events. Even though she had no idea what she was doing, she decided to challenge herself by learning Adobe Illustrator and InDesign watching YouTube tutorials. Fast forward to the present day and she is a bona fide freelance graphic designer creating logos, branding guidelines, marketing materials, and websites for an assortment of small businesses.
Gingersnap Graphics LLC was born in 2014 after much encouragement from family and friends to start her own freelance design business. Lauren has worked with a variety of clients in the Detroit area ranging from lawyers, real estate agents, hairdressers, make-up artists, fitness professionals, and non-profit organizations. Breathing life into her client’s ideas through graphics and typography has become her passion but she never forgot her first love, event planning. For this reason, she took to Etsy in 2015 creating a line of invitations and paper goods for weddings, birthdays, and other special events.
Lauren’s invitations and greeting cards have been featured on Huffington Post, The Knot, Wedding Wire, and Buzzfeed.
When Lauren is not designing, she is spending time with her future husband and family & friends, taking her dogs for walks, and planning her wedding. She has a large houseplant collection that keeps growing, is obsessed with Halloween, loves to travel, and believes that laughter til your stomach hurts is the best cure for anything.
