Oh hey!
Not only do I write a ton of articles, have a cool newsletter, and once made a film about a girl who falls in love with a plant, I’m also a badass branded creative. Let’s give your brand a story. The below content is dedicated to the branded content I’ve ideated, planned, stressed over, loved, fought for, and made authentic to brand voice and client KPIs. Of course, this is not everything. Just a snackable taste of what can do for you.

xoxo,
Laura
