Hi, I'm Lauren.
Charm & Fig is the creative playground where I have the honor to work with brides and brands across the globe to create one-of-a-kind designs that celebrate the allure of stationery.
I've loved paper and letters as long as I can remember. Exchanging letters with friends, cousins and the POTUS (#41 & #42) was always such a thrill. Guess what? POTUS always wrote back and included pictures of his pets. Nothing was cooler than the President's blind embossed return address, which simply read The White House.
Paper excited me. What began as a creative outlet in 2010, turned into a full-time dream gig after years of working in advertising, event planning and community relations. My love affair with paper, hand-lettering and texture brings a fresh approach to a timeless medium and gives me the opportunity to create distinct pieces for milestone events.
Charm & Fig's designs have been highlighted on Refinery29, Martha Stewart Weddings' Bride's Guide, Oh So Beautiful Paper, Babble, DesignWorkLife and many more adorable blogs across the internet.
Update! I wrote and illustrated a how-to book Learn to Create Gorgeous Metallic Notes. The kit is available on Amazon and is an excellent gift for creative young beginners wanting to dip their toe in the sparkly world of hand-lettering.
