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 UI Designer at Palo Alto Networks in SaaS-based security.

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.
