Hi! It’s nice to e-meet you!


I'm Lauren.

I'm a brand-focused designer based in Atlanta, GA. Most days, you’ll find me working as an Art Director alongside the magnificent humans at Rhyme & Reason Design. Outside of my 9–5, I collaborate with a select few clients – nice people who want to add a little more sparkle to their brand.

In addition to crafting bespoke brands, you can also come to me for strategy, illustration, surface pattern, typography, and all things print design – mixing it up keeps things interesting! 

I also have a hobby-turned-small business, Made Scents Candles, where I hand-pour custom candles.  

Want to chat? Perfect, I love making new friends. Feel free to send me a note at hello@laurencastrodesign.com to connect. If you're in the Atlanta area, let's meet IRL and grab a coffee. ✨ 

Things that  make me happy: 
Traveling to new places
Human behavior (ENFJ, Enneagram 2)
Petting animals
Listenin’ to podcasts
Cooking yummy things
Puns & dad jokes
Sippin’ on wine with my buds
All things gold
Candle making
Pretending I have a green thumb
Reading on my kindle
