About Lauren

I have over 20 years' experience in marketing communications, design & video production and coaching. Over these years I have successfully run my own creative agency working with large corporate clients as well as small to medium size companies. I have experience across all aspects of video production and years of graphic design know how. In the past I taught post-production classes at a local university and more recently I have been coaching small businesses so I have experience teaching 18-50 years olds.

I recently completed my MS in creativity. I now facilitate ideation sessions and train clients on how to be more creative. This has been a natural continuation for my business and helps me in expanding our services to strategy as well as marketing/advertising.

I have run a creative agency for the last 13 years. During that time I have been the creative director, designer for many projects and director / writer / editor of hundreds of videos. I understand the design and video world inside and out. I know what it takes to be a creative thinker and how to create work that attracts attention and leads one day, if it is so desired to a successful career in one of these fields.

Contact me today to find out if my style of teaching is right for you. And I can help you learn everything you have wanted to know about design, video and the business end of both.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe Photoshop

I have used Photoshop for the last 10 years to create designs for my clients. I use Photoshop in conjunction with Illustrator depending on the desired end product. I use Photoshop not only for retouching photos but to also design print materials too.

Business

I have been a small business owner for over 13 years. During that time I have learned accounting, marketing, sales, management and leadership to name a few of the areas that are required to build and run a company.
I have also worked with my larger corporate clients on brand positioning, innovation and marketing initiatives.
And finally I coach small businesses on how to solve their challenges across branding, marketing, sales and product development.

Graphic Design

I have run a creative agency for the last 13 years working across design, digital and video.
I have designed and creative directed logos, presentations, print materials and websites for Coca-Cola, Barilla, MWV and TimeMist to name a few.
I have also mentored and taught employees how to be better designers. The ins and outs of how to understand and deliver on clients expectations. And how to brainstorm ideas for projects.

Marketing

As a creative agency owner we produced many marketing materials for our clients. These materials were used to help sell their services.
I am currently working on a book to help small businesses plan, start, and grow successfully. Marketing is one of the key areas that I cover in this book. It will be completed later this year.
I also have had to market my own company in order to successfully win clients. Clients that I have worked with over the years include Coca-Cola, Hershey's, Barilla, Blackberry, Turner and Georgia Pacific.
I currently coach other small businesses to help them solve sales and marketing challenges.

Video Production

I have run a creative agency for the last 13 years working across design, digital and video.
I have written, shot, edited, produced and directed hundreds of videos for clients such as Coca-Cola, Georgia Pacific, Hershey's and Virgin to name a few.
I also taught introduction and advanced post-production at AIU for 1.5 years.

Writing

I have 15 years experiencing writing scripts, presentations, marketing materials and social media articles for a variety of businesses.

I also have a BA in English and a MS in Creativity so I've got plenty of experience writing compelling essays.
