Meet Our Founder

After surviving an emergency open-heart surgery in December 2017, Lauren Atherton knew it was time to fulfill her lifelong dream of creating a design agency dedicated to serving nonprofits.

With over a decade of creative experience, Lauren uses her award-winning design experience with brands such as Chick-fil-A, Henry Ford Health System, and DISH Network to help nonprofit organizations level-up their brands so they can rally more support. 

Lauren serves on the board of Loeys-Dietz Syndrome Foundation and has volunteered for nonprofit organizations around the United States. She has helped nonprofits of all sizes build strong brands and can help yours, too.
