Who & What

Hey there! I’m Lauren Hallden. I’m a designer from Philly. Here are some things I’ve made in the last couple of years:

Most of these things were designed and coded quickly, for free. I hope you like them.

Where & When

I keep busy. During the day I’m an in-house designer at Magento Commerce. My work runs the gamut from cuddly hedgehog icons to fully responsive, interactive research presentations for the web. Check me out on Behance and Dribbble to see what I’m up to right now.

Occasionally I write about my fixer-upper row home in Port Richmond. I’m an avid tweeter.

Why & How

I believe in making good things for good reasons. Making things that are useful, functional, and beautiful is a good start. But design can make life better in lots of other ways, too—it can challenge authority, catch you off-guard, cause you to laugh, and help you feel connected to other people.

Or, in the words of noted twitter author Dan Sinker:

“Small ideas are incredible. Build them! They will bring so much joy. Build stuff for 100 people. For 1000. Think of the possibilities!”
