An Impressive Biographical Sketch

My name is Lauren Wilkinson, and I’m a graphic designer, branding enthusiast, painter, digital marketer, and a Carolina alum. Go Tar Heels! I graduated with a B.A. in Media and Journalism with a specialization in editing and graphic design. I have experience in brand development, the editorial industry, digital marketing, and creative services. I work at a Chapel Hill, NC-based event and publishing company as a contracted graphic designer and production assistant by day and am a freelance graphic designer by night. I’m always looking for opportunities in brand development and logo design, editorial design, illustration, and custom lettering projects. I am also actively investing in myself and learning about mural painting & design, product development, 3D environmental graphic design, and packaging design.

I grew up on a farm in the small town of Oxford, North Carolina, of which a 2017 UNC-Chapel Hill National Champion Isaiah Hicks was born. I have always had a passion for art and design and knew when I was little that when I grew up, I wanted to be on a creative career path.

I live for making people’s creative visions come to life and having the same feeling I did when I saw the Duomo in Florence, Italy, for the first time when they see their graphic design packages for the first time.

I’m extremely passionate about the impact women have had on history and how women can empower other women in today’s world. Besides creating art and designing, I also love to travel (my favorite places in the world are Charleston, South Carolina, and Florence, Italy), attack puppies that aren’t mine, put on an excessive amount of mascara, buy shoes that I don’t need and try new restaurants out.
