Creative Director & Co-Founder
In 2015, Laura co-founded Circa Design, a graphic design and branding studio that helps business owners, entrepreneurs and visionaries grow their good ideas. Prior to launching Circa, Laura served as a freelance designer for clients in real estate, finance, healthcare and retail. She worked for Chronicle Books in San Francisco as a senior designer in their gift division and began her career with The Valentine Group in New York City. Her work has won countless awards and been featured at the Museum of Design Atlanta. She holds a design degree from the Portfolio Center in Atlanta and a B.A. in Art from the University of the South.
Laura balances the demands of running a studio with the challenges of raising two boys. She is dedicated to mentoring others. Thanks to Circa’s fellowship program, dozens of young designers have acquired jobs in the creative field. In a fast-paced, “me first” world, Laura is a calm and humble escape. Her accomplishments reveal her design prowess, as well as her quiet, yet confident, leadership style.
