SCHOOL OF ADVERTISING ART (SAA)

Lauren Landes’s life can be described in different shades of blue. It began brilliantly, a phthalo blue, filled with art classes, scrapbooking, and basement-wall graffiti. Enter Cambridge Blue, the blue that grows wonder and curiosity. This is when Lauren pretty much became a total nerd. (Full-on NERD. Loud, big ole glasses, social ineptitude; the whole nine yards.) Fortunately, the poor girl grew out of this sad stage, but she never discarded a gregarious sense of humor. This Cambridge blue, the blue of curiosity, one day exploded into neon indigo. This electrified into a love for her college, SAA, and created a passion for typography, illustration, and branding. Currently, Lauren affirms that she DEARLY loves cooking with curry, Iceland, screen-printing, and colorful socks. She stretches her brain through a myriad of freelance projects and wants to do something good with her passion to benefit others. Most of all, Lauren loves the people in her life, her faith, and Jesus. Her instructors are her inspiration, and her family is pretty cool.
