Hey y’all—

I’m Lauren (Lo) Harris, an Alabama-raised, Brooklyn-based digital artist who specializes in illustration and motion design. I utilize bright palettes, strong figures and relational compositions to create work that champions vibrance, confidence, humanity, and joy. Through my work I hope to illustrate a more just and kind world. I’m interested in working on editorial projects, campaigns and environmental designs for lifestyle, technology, and beauty brands, as well as social justice initiatives.


I am currently an Associate Animator at NBC News Digital, and have previously worked at The New York Times, Bustle and The Chicago Reporter.
