Please give a warm welcome to our summer graphic design intern, Laurel Tauben! She’s a locally grown 21-year-old designer-in-training, an avid diver, conceptual thinker, and even cyborg. She loves dancing (especially couple’s dancing), and forcing her cat, Jelly, to spend time with her. Next year she’ll be a graduate of the University of North Texas’ Communication Design program and is eager to see how her life will change after graduation. We asked her a few questions to get to know her a little better – take a look at her answers below!
Q: Werewolves or vampires?
A: Usually vampires. Werewolves are clique-y.
Q: There’s a zombie apocalypse. What do you grab?
A: My car keys. I’m going to Wal-Mart where there’s no windows, video monitoring, huge food supply, pharmacy, weapons, AND barricade materials. With a few extra people on board, you’ve got a micro-city.
Q: Favorite boy band?
A: Fall Out Boy
Q: If you could dis-invent one thing, what would it be?
A: Bras. :’(
Q: If fat, calories, cholesterol, etc. were not an issue, what two foods would you feast on?
A: French bread & cream puffs.
Q: What has been the highlight of your experience at Launch so far?
A: Endless coffee and getting to know the Launch team. Everyone’s been so sweet!
Q: What do you hope to learn in your time at Launch?
A: To list a few, I hope to become more confident in my ability to deliver what a client needs, streamline my process to work faster, strengthen my collaboration skills, and peek into the “real world” of design.
