Lauren Pinner

Graphic Designer

Grand Rapids, MI, USA
Hi, I’m Lauren Pinner! I'm a recent graduate of Ferris State University’s Graphic Design Program, and am working as a graphic designer at Steelcase.

I’m a believer in the power of process, and love the winding journey that ideas take from concept to final solution. I’m more likely to find solutions in the middle of the woods than in front of a computer screen, and I infinitely prefer sketching out my ideas to mindless pixel-pushing.
