A bit about me

Hey there, I am LJ and I am a designer. LJ Carter Creative is my dream creative adventure to work with enthusiastic clients who want to start or grow their business with creative confidence. My goal with every project is to actively collaborate, guide and strategically design for my clients. But at the end of the day I bust it so they have peace-of-mind because I am more than just a designer, I am a creative thinker. It’s hard work but totally worth it because I create for others needs and find joy in seeing the positive impact my clients have on people they reach.  

My portfolio is mixture of my work as LJ Carter Creative and from my four years as an Art Director at the Balcom Agency. With a touch of some undergraduate projects at the University of Kansas (Rock Chalk Jayhawks!).

When we started our brewery, there was no doubt we wanted Lauren to spearhead our creative and branding efforts. Consistency, quality, and clear direction is what we got. In our business, ease of consumer recognition of our products and our brand are essential. Lauren has a great understanding of these concepts, and guided us through the process with naming, branding, artwork, digital presence, and point of sale assets. As we grow into our second year, Lauren’s work continues to be the foundation of our success.

When I asked Lauren to design my wedding invitations I only had one request, to incorporate a watercolor map of the region our wedding was going to be in. This was not a simple request, but it is was executed with perfection! Not only did Lauren deliver exactly what I imagined for the map, the illustrations and typography used to tie the whole invitation package together exquisitely reflected the feel I wanted my wedding to have.

Lauren has the unique ability to turn a muddled vision into the perfect, creative reality. Her work is always on point, and her professionalism makes her a joy to do business with. Our firm couldn’t be happier with LJ Carter Creative!
