Branding, Copywriting, and Web Design
Blissful Diaries is an event planning company based in Los Angeles. Founder Sascia Schloemer was aiming to create a polished and feminine experience that would appeal to new brides. I designed the logo, wrote the content, and designed the layout with Squarespace.
Candlewood Investigations is a private investigation firm that specializes in online and social media background checks. I designed the logo and the layout. I worked directly with Founder Jessica Workman to develop the copy for the website.
“Laurel spent over an hour on the phone with me patiently hashing out my vision for my company and what I wanted for my website to convey to potential clients, down to even the smallest details and nuances. She was prompt in delivering her project proposal and not only planned for several rounds of revisions, but encouraged me to be an active part of the design process to make sure I was fully satisfied with the result - and I absolutely am!”
