LAUREN_MURPHREE

SCHOOL OF ADVERTISING ART (SAA)

Lauren is a second-year graphic design student whose specialties include conceptual photography, package design, front-end web design, and branding. Lauren’s favorite part of the design process is without a doubt the concepting phase. She loves attention to detail and making every element of a design or photograph have a strong and clear purpose. That, she says, is the difference between a good design and a great one. Her design aesthetic is unique; she loves utilizing light and fun colors with quirky visuals. Lauren is a firm believer that if you work hard and have a good attitude you can accomplish anything. When she isn’t at school or working on projects, Lauren loves to read, write, and listen to albums on vinyl to decompress and refuel her creative energy. She feels so lucky to get to do what she loves as her career and feels eternally grateful for everyone who has helped her get to here.
