“Laura Morris’s award-winning designs speak for themselves. But those who work with Laura get the best part – to see her creativity in action and to enjoy an easygoing, fun collaboration with this most talented, witty, and charming human being. I can’t imagine having come as far as we have at Berkshire Living if Laura hadn’t been an integral part of our team since even before day one. And it’s been one of the greatest of my personal pleasures to have worked at her side ever since.”
   –Seth Rogovoy, editor-in-chief, Berkshire Living

“Laura is an outstanding art director and designer. She’s creative and quick, with a real flair for linking the images to the words, in a way that enhances both in an exciting way“.    
   –James Daly, editor-in-chief of Business 2.0, Edutopia and TED Books

“Working with Laura on many issues of Edutopia has been a true highlight of my career. Her creative talent has not only won many awards but contributes to a greater good by setting a high bar for other publications to follow. What I value most in Laura is that her combined conceptual & design skills and easygoing personality have lead to an enjoyable client relationship and many successful collaborations. She’s the best.”

“Besides her great visual abilities, Laura Morris is a delight to work with. Unlike more than a few of her fellow art directors and graphic designers, her considerable talents are not counterbalanced by an arrogant belief that editors are idiots with blurred vision and bad ideas whose opinions are best kept to themselves. Laura listens, considers, and when an editor has actually come up with something, makes changes. In my experience with Laura, however, making her work better was rarely necessary.”
   –Owen Edwards, executive editor of Edutopia

“As an art director, Laura’s insightful ideas permit me to transcend the industry cliches in order to produce my best illustrations.  Her design work is outstanding and inevitably makes my art look its best.  I feel privileged whenever I have the opportunity to work with her, and I’m honored to know her. Laura simply makes work fun!”
   –Thomas Reis, illustrator

Having worked with Laura for more than 15 years at Imagine Publishing and Our State, I am continuously impressed with and inspired by her creativity, attention to detail and ability to work confidently and competently on projects that require the coordination of multiple departments and schedules. She designed a variety of monthly publications under tight deadlines and was instrumental in establishing the company’s brand identity. Her keen sense of organization, sound judgment and grace under pressure enabled her to produce award-winning designs while managing a large art department. Laura brings enthusiasm and determination to every endeavor.
