Meet Lauren

Graphic Designer + Artist

Lauren, founder and head designer of Studio 162, studied graphic design, photography, printmaking, and painting at the Cooper Union School of Art in NYC. She's fortunate to have interned with American graphic designer Milton Glaser, and studied under Philippe Apeloig during her time there. Lauren received a grant for $20k from the Miller Brewing Company’s Urban Entrepreneur Business Grant Series to help launch Studio 162. Lauren began specialized in designing family heirloom books at the start of her business but has grown to offer a variety of creative solutions. As a designer, she's inspired Paula Scher, and is wild about Frida Kahlo and Hundertwasser --All for their use of bold color and symbolism. She is an active artist in the lower Fairfield county and has been featured in area newspapers and magazines. Lauren is active in her community by mentoring design students, offering internships and discounted design rates to non-profits. Lauren is a Jackie Robinson Foundation Scholar alum.

It is both an energetic candy-colored marque that reads now playing: "Stamford downtown.” It’s a combination of electric pinks, blues, purples, and pops of yellow that capture the rush of anticipation. One feels moments before a show begins..."
