About This Project
BiographyLauren is a designer and letterer who splits her time between Los Angeles and New York City. Known for her bright colour palettes and playful letterforms, Lauren has created work for clients like Starbucks, Google, AT&T, YouTube and TIME Magazine. Her work has been recognized by Communication Arts, the Art Directors Club, the Type Directors Club, the One Club, and the Webby Awards. Lauren is also the author of the popular blog (and now book) Daily Dishonesty.
She finds that she’s happiest when creating; so, when she’s not working, you can find her baking yummy things, selling your ex-boyfriend’s tears, or lettering for lunch around New York City. Lauren’s motto is, and will always be, “work hard, snack often.”
Stop Looking for Inspiration: Be Your Own Muse!
OverviewIn early 2016, Lauren packed up her studio in New York City in pursuit of the ultimate form of inspiration: travel. After exploring the world for a year, she was surprised to discover that she didn’t feel more inspired than before. The truth is, she’d actually found more inspiration for her work in her normal, everyday life than in her epic world trip.
That’s not to say that travel can’t be wildly inspiring – it totally can be. But what if she told you that there’s just as much inspiration in fighting with your spouse as there is in traveling the world? Would you believe her if she told you that she’s gotten more inspiration from a night of drinking than a night of watching TED talks? What Lauren hopes to teach you today is that EVERY experience in your life can be used as inspiration. You are the secret source of inspiration you never even knew you had – you just need to know where to look.
