Hola! I'm Lorenza Amigo - or Lora - a graphic designer based in Chicago with a love for branding, layout, typography and strong visual balance. I work on projects globally, with a wide variety of clients, from micro breweries, top performing real estate companies, to mommy-preneurs and artists. I'm well versed in both online and print mediums and have lately enjoyed a lot of social media centric clients.
I currently work part time as the Graphic Designer for Goltz Group, a Chicago based home furnishings company and have also been working diligently to launch my own start up in Mexico City. Incredibly, I still find time to squeeze in freelance projects - I just love design! (and a college fund for the kids isn't bad either).
I was born and raised in Mexico City and came to the USA in 2010 with my husband. What was originally just a temporary stay to further our education (I did my graphic design degree at the Illinois Institute of Art while he pursued his MBA at Kellogg School of Management) became a more permanent decision. We were both offered jobs in the city upon graduating and have made Chicago our home ever since. There's just something about this city that captivated us - maybe it's the mix of cultures, the beer, the people, the lake and the phenomenal food. Definitely not the cold.
When I'm not designing and child rearing, you can find me knitting or obsessively editing pictures to upload on Instagram - I guess you can call them hobbies, I like to call them therapy.
Thanks for looking at my work and have a beautiful day :)
