My Work

Hi, I’m Laura Sorensen, CEO and founder of Atelier LKS.

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

I’m a Multimedia Brand Developer. And with over 17 years of experience in branding, marketing and web design, I’m passionate about every project I take on and possess a keen attention to detail. In my book, it’s those little details that make all the difference between something that simply “does the job” and something that’s truly compelling. Want to see how I work?

Imagine feeling:

  • Inspired by your visuals
  • Confident about your business messaging
  • Proud of your website
  • Excited to whip out your business card

Imagine fostering a business brand that people love to tell their friends about, and that brings in the type of clients or customers you’ve been wanting to reach.

I can help with:

I want to capture exactly what your business is all about, and give you a blueprint and a baseline to carry your business forward.

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.

How I help clients stand out:

A short video about how I can help make your company visuals modern & memorable, through logo and brand identity, website design & development and print and digital advertising.

Your Design Problems = My Joy I’m so thankful f Your Design Problems = My Joy

I’m so thankful for many of the satisfying facets of my job as a solopreneur visual designer. I’m sure the list could get longer quickly – but off the top of my head, here are five reasons I love owning a visual design studio:

1. I get to build deep relationships.

2. I get to help empower people to market their business.

3. I learn about businesses that I would never otherwise be exposed to.

4. I get to work in the way that works best for me

5. I get to play!

First outdoor work session in a loooooong time! I First outdoor work session in a loooooong time! I heart this little state.
The best way to retain your value as a business at The best way to retain your value as a business at this time is to give customers valuable advice. Or simply make them laugh every week! Staying on their radar keeps you on their minds. And that’s gold.⁠
⁠
For example:⁠
⁠
- My hairdresser @tarasianihair delivers at-home haircare tips and style. She’s also highlighted some of her favorite clients (like me!).⁠
- My marketing & PR partner @JScottMarketing has provided useful advice on applying for SBA loans, and re-shared insightful, even humorous posts about being a business owner at this time.
Your logo construction should be highly intentiona Your logo construction should be highly intentional. It should powerfully convey - on an abstract level - how you better the lives of your clients, your community, and the world around us. 
That usually can’t be developed in just a couple hours playing with shapes and fonts. And I want you to stand out, so I won’t use the most obvious color or the most obvious symbol.

Bottom line: Your way of effecting change is special and different. It can (and should) take time and care to capture that.
I know I’m super-late to the party on how to loo I know I’m super-late to the party on how to look like a rockstar on Zoom, but here goes:⁠
⁠
1. DON’T use the ‘virtual background’ option, unless you’re trying to hide your recently unpacked cocaine shipment. A client asked me to create a branded background for her, and it ended up looking like a bad green screen cut from a B movie.⁠
⁠
2. POSITION your laptop/tablet/desktop so you are ever-so-slightly looking up at the camera. We really do look so much better when we’re not showing off our double-chins. My laptop trick: position a mini plastic step stool on top of my coffee table, then place my laptop on that. A stack of really thick books can also work in a pinch.⁠
⁠
3. LIGHTING is king, friends. You want light shining directly at you so you don’t give off any weird Nosferatu side-shadow vibes. Filtered light is best. The WORST lighting is window light coming from behind you. I don’t have ideal lighting, so I got a mountable Lume Cube AIR - I swear by the thing.⁠
⁠
4. BACKGROUND: So obviously, your cocaine shipment should be stored in the closet. Along with anything else that makes you look a bit un-professional. This is a grey area, tho. Just don’t be caught with your pants down (virtually or literally) - start rearranging stuff and remedying the lighting at least 15 minutes before your meeting starts. You can do a dry run by clicking the orange 'new meeting' icon. ⁠🤩
