About a year ago, my husband Michael and I traveled to the Pacific Northwest in celebration of our fifth wedding anniversary. We spent the first half of the trip on the Olympic Peninsula and second half in Seattle. In the spirit of “better late than never,” here’s a recap of our time in the PNW.
Lauren Sinnott is a graphic designer, letterer, and aspiring foodie based in Birmingham, Alabama.
I grew up in a small suburb of Birmingham, raised by two creatives in the days before Instagram and iPhones. As college approached, I had no idea what career I would pursue. My mom suggested I look into Graphic Design; thankfully, I heeded her advice.
In 2009, I graduated magna cum laude from Auburn University’s College of Architecture, Design and Construction with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design. Following graduation, I joined Highland Capital Brokerage’s in-house creative team as Graphic Designer. Three years later, I was promoted to my current role as Art Director.
When not at my desk, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my husband and our two pups, experimenting in the kitchen, and exploring the Magic City. I also take on interesting side projects as a freelance designer/calligrapher. If you’d like to discuss a potential project or just say hi, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
