Hi, I'm Steve Lauri, freelance art director/designer. I specialize in helping ad agencies with their overflow projects, such as print ads, collateral, direct mail, email communications, landing pages, web banner ads, event graphics and packaging, etc. I can also take a project from start to finish, if necessary, providing concept, layout, design, copywriting, photography, illustration, production and/or programming. Or, I can simply help out with a half day of photoshop work. Shoot me an email or give me a call. I look forward to working with you.
Over the years, I've had the pleasure of working on some the greatest brands in the world. Click or tap the following thumbnails to view samples of current work, as well as some of my past projects:
Including full-time positions at a few different Orange County ad agencies, Steve has built a career as a successful, freelance art director and designer spanning more than 20 years. During his career, he has done work for some of the biggest brands in the world, including Hyundai, Olympus, Reebok, Shimano, Toshiba and Yamaha. His background includes a wide range of industries—from automobile, high-tech, health and fitness, consumer electronics, music, athletic shoes to golf.
While winning numerous awards, including a gold at the AAF Orange County for his work on Reebok, Steve has collaborated with some of the most talented writers, photographers and illustrators in the country. He has also worked directly with various local, national and global companies—understanding their brands and focusing on developing creative that smartly connects with their customers.
In addition to his business experience, Steve designed a series of fine art posters which were published and sold world wide. He graduated with a degree in graphic design from Long Beach State University. And for two, short-lived years in his glory days, he was a member of the now defunct, Players' Amateur Golf Tour. Today, Steve enjoys day trips with his wife, playing golf, hiking, movies and listening to blues.
