Lauren Blyskal is a Houston area graphic designer and photographer. She has 12 years experience working on a large variety of design pieces including brochures, advertising campaigns, logos, editorial layout, invitations, posters, large-scale tradeshow & retail graphics and websites. Her love of design started early and she’s a self-proclaimed design-geek getting excited when recognizing fonts on billboards or having a “lightbulb” moment about a great design or concept.
She’s been taking photos of everything in sight for 15 years. Her photography is mostly of her travels and includes locations around the United States, Europe, Central America and the Caribbean. Her photos range from landscapes and wildlife to flowers, close-up details and abstract images.
Lauren is an animal advocate and is active in the community working closely with a number of local rescue groups including acting as the marketing and design coordinator for Houston Eskimo Rescue. She has two rescue dogs of her own and works to find homes for as many more as possible through marketing, networking, photography and charity work. She takes photographs of shelter and rescue dogs so their true personality can shine to potential adopters. Each year she participates in the 5K of the Houston Chevron Marathon in support of Citizens for Animal Protection where one of her rescue pups was adopted from.
