Lauren here! I am a midwesterner who currently resides in the Bay-Area and works as an industrial designer with a focus in objects and home goods.
I received my BFA in Industrial Design from the Cleveland Institute of Art and have an extensive background in materials, with the strongest area of expertise in ceramics and metals. The majority of my work deals with this type of material exploration.
Currently, I work as the sole industrial designer for Chronicle Books, an iconic San Francisco book publisher. For all of my hard goods projects, I also work as a Production Developer, creating specifications and sourcing materials with overseas vendors. When off the clock, I am the co-creator of a small artisan candle business named lump shop, and independently make sculptures on the side.
