Hello! I’m Laura Kaupang
(pronounced “co-pang”), an art director + illustrator from the Twin Cities. Design is one of my biggest passions and it brings me so much joy to be able to use my God-given talents in my career and personal life on a daily basis.
I wouldn’t necessarily say that I became a designer as a result of a career choice; I like to think that the little designer and illustrator was inside of me ever since I was small. All of those glitter-covered Valentine’s Day cards, silly drawings, and homemade books paved the way for me to discover what I was designed to do: create beautiful things.
My days are filled with color, typefaces, and a splash of sarcasm in my role as art director / designer at Life Time Fitness. I also have a passion for handlettering and developing my own line of children’s illustrations. Design is what I do, but pursuing an authentic life is what makes me who I am. Some of my favorite activities include strength training, brunching with girlfriends, and working on my Ph.D.
