Hom Sweet Hom is the studio of Lauren Hom, a designer, illustrator, and letterer based in Brooklyn, New York. Her love for hand-drawn typography and doodles, combined with the speed and precision of the computer, has led her to develop a unique type style that's crisp and clean, yet whimsical and handmade. Known for her bright color palettes and playful letterforms, Lauren has created work for clients like YouTube, Los Angeles Magazine, and Simon & Schuster. Her work has been recognized by Communication Arts, the Art Directors Club, the One Club, and the Webby Awards. She finds that she's happiest when creating; so, when she's not working, you can find her baking yummy things, sewing funny pillows, or sketching out her next tattoo. Lauren's motto is, and will always be, "Work hard, snack often."
