lauren diem - about


bringing the midwest to the best coast.


I was born and raised in the ‘burbs of Detroit. I earned my BFA in Graphic Design at the College for Creative Studies in 2009. I started out as an in-house graphic designer at a lighting design firm, spent some time at a local magazine publisher, then moved on to agency land. I sharpened my digital skills at some of the best agencies including Goodby, VSA Partners, and Organic. Most recently I’ve been at Google leading teams in design, copy and art direction for marketing across multiple products.

Design influences everything I do, from client work to cooking to making music. I believe the best design solutions are those that are not noticed as such. I love clear, concise communication and have the tendency to simplify. Except when it comes to pets and houseplants; in which case, more is more.
