about

Lauren DeFilippo

Graphic Design & Photography

Lauren DeFilippo is a graphic designer and photographer living in Denver, Colorado. A graduate of Parsons, The New School for Design, Lauren worked in the design departments of AvroKo and Ceci New York before relocating to Colorado, where she served as the Brand Manager for Richard Sandoval Restaurants for three years. Her dual talents in graphics and still images make her an exceptional resource for brands seeking a coherent visual strategy, and her freelance client list has grown to include numerous restaurants and artisanal businesses.

Over the course of her career, Lauren has crafted dozens of branding, logo, illustration and web design concepts, from album artwork for emerging musicians to full visual rebrands for established restaurant concepts. Behind her designs is a photographer's eye, and her time behind the camera is a never-ending source of inspiration. Though Lauren's photo experience began with formal training in college, it wasn't until she launched her design career in 2010 that she began to pursue photography professionally. Since then, she has shot everything from action photography for fitness startups and intimate engagement shoots to her current focus: the field of food and dining. Since moving to Denver, Lauren has contributed to local publications such as 5280 Magazine and Fellow Magazine, while also providing regular Colorado and travel coverage for Life & Thyme.

In 2016, Lauren launched a full-service branding agency - Cognoscenti Creative - with her sister, Carly who is a copywriter and content strategist in NYC.
