Lauren Michelle Smith is an award-winning designer specializing in book design, branding, and art direction.

Born and raised in the Midwest, Lauren made her way back after spending several years living in California, Kentucky, and Tennessee. Chicago has now been home for 6+ years.

When she’s not designing, you can find her antiquing with her husband, buying too many plants, and cuddling with her dog, Alfie.
