About Laura


Bio

I'm an educator and a graphic designer in Oregon. I've taught Adobe Creative Suite and Graphic Design to hundreds of wonderful students at Georgia State University and Atlanta College of Art since 1997. From that experience, I know the fastest path to learning software is through a project. I originally learned Adobe software at Atlanta's regional certified Apple Training Center.

I'm an educator and a graphic designer in Oregon. I've taught Adobe Creative Suite and Graphic Design to hundreds of wonderful students at Georgia State University and Atlanta College of Art since 1997. From that experience, I know the fastest path to learning software is through a project. I originally learned Adobe software at Atlanta's regional certified Apple Training Center. So my students become familiar with official Apple and Adobe terminology— as an important communication tool in a school or workplace. I specialize in Indesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator. I have a deep respect for proper Typography, that I have found is contagious. I've learned a lot lately about iPhone photography for my daily social media posts for my clients' brands. I'll show you how to size, crop, filter, and enhance your photos in Adobe programs. I genuinely enjoy people and children of all ages, and we usually laugh a lot in my classes while we learn.
I have a B.A. in Painting, Drawing and Printmaking, followed by a certificate in Commercial Art. My mother is an art instructor— so I grew up in the arts. I value visual communication education very much. In my design career, I've spent a majority of years working in educational marketing for Colleges and Universities, and branding lovable brands for companies all over!

Do you want to get up and running on Indesign in a short time? Do you want tips in Illustrator from a professional logo designer? Do you need a step by step how-to lesson and documentation for a certain process in Photoshop? If so, please reach out and let's talk about how I can help you. I look forward to hearing from you!

Adobe Illustrator,

I've used Adobe Illustrator since I was trained at the Apple Regional Training Center in Atlanta in 1993. I use proper terminology. And I know from teaching graphic design students for years that the fastest way to learn is with a project. If you show me what you'd like to create, then I'll get you there as fast as anyone can!

I've worked with book publishers, magazines, and entire programs of publications, creating multi page pieces that conform to publishing standards. I can create templates with style sheets for use by in-house departments. I not only know the software to create publications. I know proper formatting, and have a love of proper typography.

I've worked in Advertising Agencies in New York, Zurich and Atlanta. I've taught graphic design in the degree program and software at the college level.

Each project teaches you skills in Adobe Indesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator.

Knowledgeable and helpful!

I received Indesign tutorials today. There are a million little details for that program and we began the journey of upgrading my skills! I appreciated having a one on one conversation with Laura to cover my particular needs and questions.
