“A picture is worth a thousand words.” This has been my mantra for a far back as I can remember. I have always been drawn to “pictures” — photos, graphics, artwork, design, logos, signage — discovering how to manipulate image, color and light to evoke emotion or to convey a message without words.
As a designer, my mission is to create experiences for my clients to communicate with their audience — whether that’s to educate, inform or persuade. Evolving technology and shorter attention spans continue to challenge the methods with which we’re able to get that message across. This is where it gets demanding but also very exciting — researching, evolving and constantly learning new methods and techniques to keep my clients ahead of the curve.
So, in a nutshell . . . what will Terry Design Co. bring to the table? — creativity, experience, determination, zest for learning and a “never half-ass anything” work ethic.
"Working with Lauren Terry is effortless! We rely on her expertise and quick turn arounds during the height of proposal season when we need multiple graphics, CD covers, and cover pages. Our company has also had her create our social media banners, marketing folders and inserts, as well as multiple document cover pages. We appreciate her attention to detail, her speed, and her ability to easily work with our content — all within committed deadlines."
"Having the perfect combination of skill and creativity, Lauren has the ability to execute our vision and deliver an exceptional product in a timely manner. Her remarkable sense of what we are looking for, even with minimal direction at times, adds to the ease of our working partnership. Lauren’s design work is top-notch and stands out above the rest."
"For over 20 years Lauren has made my copy and concepts look better than I imagined them. She has the kind of professional pride that keeps her on the cutting edge, but without being “trendy.” I especially value a quality too rare among creatives — her humility. I never worry about asking Lauren for another go at an image or layout. All the above plus her energy, fun and genuine concern for great results keeps Lauren at the top of my list of preferred designers."
"Lauren is a true creative professional. I have often given her too-vague ideas, not even really knowing what it is that I'm looking for, and she has presented me with exactly what I needed! She pays great attention to detail, making sure every element is exactly right. Lauren is much more than a designer. Lauren is an artist."
"I have been working with Lauren for the better part of 5 years. She has been instrumental in all of my branding and marketing for Coyote Grille. She has designed all of my menus, signage and promotional materials which are a key part of my business — selling food! Her creativity is always on point. She is detail-oriented, professional and always on time for last minute projects."
"We are super appreciative to have you as our secret weapon to handle these massive projects so that our team can continue to be as efficient and as effective as possible."
"We truly enjoyed working with Lauren on our publication project. We had a number of serious last minute challenges that impacted our timeline, and with each delay, Lauren was a trooper. She adjusted as our timeline changed or was in limbo, and was resourceful in moving forward with the content that we could give her. She is collaborative, and we love her work product."

“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
“Design is not just what it looks like & feels like. Design is how it works."
“The Designer today should not help to produce more — he has to help produce fewer and better things. There is a beauty, an aesthetic and philosophy of the less.”
“Curiosity about life in all its aspects, I think, is still the secret of great creative people.”
“The work you do while you procrastinate is probably the work you should be doing for the rest of your life.”
“Recognizing the need is the primary condition for design.”
“Design is the method of putting form and content together. Design, just as art, has multiple definitions; there is no single definition. Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple that’s why it is so complicated.”
