Lauren Manning Nichols
With a lifelong love of design, I have always approached each project on a mission to find just the right balance of creativity and clarity to communicate its unique message.
I received a BFA in graphic design from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and later continued my studies in the international postgraduate program at the Basel School of Design in Switzerland. I worked for a graphic design studio in Chicago, a marketing communications group in Boston, and an exhibit design company in San Francisco before returning to Chicago to continue spending my days doing what I love in a place that I love.
Continually energized by new challenges, I recently began teaching typography, photography, and graphic design at the University of Illinois at Chicago’s School of Design. Whether collaborating with clients or guiding my students, I am committed to bringing an abundance of good design sense to any table.
