I'm Lauren Rae, and I art direct, problem solve, illustrate, and design.

I was a part of the Product Design team at Evident, an industry-leading AWS-monitoring and remediation service for 3.5 years. I led the product’s visual design, helping guide it to a $300m acquisition in 2018. I now work as a User Experience Designer at Palo Alto Networks on the Prisma UX Team.

In my spare time, I’m Holtermonster. I'm skilled at posters, event promotion, logos, branding, custom illustration, typography, portraiture, and vector illustration. I like hunting for old signs, metal shows, watching movies, cooking, and collecting vintage chairs. I’m inspired by good stories, and authenticity. I like loud music.

I take on a limited number of commissions on a per project basis. If you want to start a conversation, please drop me a line at holtermonster@gmail.com.
