LAUREN FRANK

Hi, I’m Lauren. I’m a graphic designer and a recent graduate from University of California, Los Angeles where I studied Art with a minor in Art History. I have previously worked as an intern for The Jewish Museum in New York, VICE Media, and NBCUniversal and I am currently available for new opportunities.

My interests within design include branding, typography, editorial, and book design, as well as the intersections between art and design.

Outside of design, I am currently fascinated by the relationship between witchcraft and feminism, Hito Steyerl’s Duty Free Art, the Northern Renaissance, and the fact that there are people who refuse to wear a mask in the middle of a pandemic.
