SCHOOL OF ADVERTISING ART
Laura Lyle grew up in the square-mile town of Greenfield OH. She began drawing at a very young age using stacks of church bulletins and old envelopes from her mother’s purse as sketchpads. Throughout high school she took academics seriously, but always managed to fit Fine Arts into her tight schedule. Creating artwork and props for the drama department interested her, but she never saw it as a career. Her initial plan was to attend college to major in Education, but one visit to the School of Advertising Art was all it took to spark the desire to enter the world of design. Along with her creativity, Laura uses her fierce work ethic, strong academic background and crazy love of organization in her design work. Being both right- and leftbrained helps her start with the mechanics and push it through to the final design product. She is now in her final year at SAA. Laura just completed an externship at Lunne Marketing Group in Dayton and is working on projects leading into portfolio quarter, while trying to find time for a night at Starbucks with a good book.
