Resumé upon request.
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 2 year 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) suddenly became a more permanent decision. We were both offered jobs in the city upon graduating and 2 kids, a morgage and a dog later- Chicago is now home! There's just something about this city that captivated us. Maybe it's the beer, the nice people, the general friendliness towards immigrants, the color changing lake and the phenomenal food. It is definitely not the cold.
When I'm not designing or hanging out with my kids, you can find me at the dog beach with my giant fluffy dog | knitting | obsessively editing pictures to upload on Instagram | at Crossfit | at a concert | listening to a podcast | reading a good book. Or sometimes at a protest or rally against a bigoted orange man. Depends on the mood.
Thanks for looking at my work and have a beautiful day :)
