My Work

Hi, I’m Laura Sorensen, Design Doctor at Atelier LKS.

(What’s that funky name mean? See below.)

I’m a Design Doctor and Multimedia Brand Developer. I work with marketing teams and indie consultants to galvanize their brand and weaponize their visual marketing so they can articulate their value, stand out from the competition, and change more lives.

Imagine feeling:

  • Confident that you stand head-and-shoulders above the competition
  • Free from frustration in making your brand more effective
  • Proud that your website looks professional and attracts the right clients
  • Empowered to charge what you’re worth because your brand reflects your value

I can help with:

If you’re overwhelmed by the idea of branding 😫 and know you need an expert, you’re in the right place.

Whatever your business is, I want to help generate desire for what you’re selling.

Oh, and in case you don’t parlez le Français (no judgment here), atelier is French for studio. And LKS? They’re my initials.

Sometimes a $5 Cleopatra mask at iParty is all you need.

My hubby Wayne and I did Trunk or Treat at my parents' church this past weekend, and all I can say is:

Everyone else did a much better job on their trunk.

Yep, ours was pretty ghetto.

We just draped battery-powered string lights willy-nilly over the opening and in amongst the candy. It took us 7 minutes.

(Other more well-designed trunk displays used cohesive, memorable themes like Jurassic Park, the Pink Ladies from Grease, and Back to the Future. These trunks required hours of planning and decorating.)

Because the trick-or-treating started in the daylight, it wasn't until it got dark that people started noticing our 'ghetto' trunk.

I was surprised, perplexed, and pleased to hear several people say, "Wow - this trunk is my favorite one!" We even had one kid call our trunk the "Light Monster". 

And the kids were kinda transfixed by my $5 Cleopatra mask. Go figure!

What am I taking away from all this? 

A) It's OK to not be that into Halloween (I'm an actor, so donning a costume is a normal thing for me), but 

B) people will respond to even a little oomph if you greet them with a big smile and tell them their Elsa costume is SOOO beautiful. 

And this: 

If you want someone who will 1) anticipate your brand needs, 2) care for your brand as much as you do, and 3) use her genius to make you stand out from competitors, THAT'S a costume I'm dying to wear all year.

I'd love to help you decorate your trunk. Really. Just not your actual one for Trunk or Treat.

3️⃣ Having to tell the agency how to do everything

5️⃣ Being disappointed by boring design comps
6️⃣ Wearing all those marketing/sales/creative hats
7️⃣ Worrying that your brand looks boring to investors

✅ Be there to build amazing results with you.

I’m headed to the wilds of Mississippi this week!
I’ll be teaching on brand identity at NASA Stennis Space Center! 🤩

Working together with leaders from Indonesia, Malaysia, Mauritania, and the Philippines, I’ll be giving a workshop on how these folks can powerfully communicate their cutting-edge ideas to the top decision-makers in their country thru 5 key elements in their pitch deck.

I’m beyond excited to see this place, meet this wonderful group of leaders, and play a small part in helping them make a deep impact on the future of their own country!

The Strategic Leaders International Course offers rising leaders from partner nations:
(1) a systemic view of a complex world
(2) an appreciation for the value of diversity, and
(3) a mindset and a set of tools for valuing and fostering cooperation

Wish me luck!! 🤞🏼
