I'm Lauren Fourcade,
a creative professional
specializing in graphic
design and video editing.
After graduating from the University of Oklahoma with a bachelor’s degree in Creative Media Production and a minor in Film and Media Studies, I went to work as a Graduate Fellow with Saxum, an integrated digital agency in Oklahoma City. I was an active member of the creative team, working on multiple design, video, and photography projects for a diverse set of clients.
My time at Saxum allowed me to hone my skills and gain valuable experience, which led me to my first full-time position as Graphic Designer & Video Editor for the Oklahoma Tourism and Recreation Department (OTRD). Throughout my time with OTRD, I created a wide range of print and digital design projects, including web pages, logos, t-shirt designs, infographics, social graphics, display ads, print ads, and more. I also created motion graphics for the department’s broadcast television show, Discover Oklahoma, animated multiple 30-second promotional videos for Oklahoma Today Magazine, and edited vertical video for the department’s social platforms.
I was also fortunate to get real-world experience under my belt during my time at OU. My position as the lead video editor with Gaylord Hall Productions (GHP), a student-run video production company in Gaylord College, was incredible during my time as a student. I was able to work with clients in-state and around the country and play a significant part in creating content that told stories, built businesses, and inspired others. I also had the privilege of working with the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition (OVAC) as their Media and Programs Assistant while I was a student. I shot and edited promotional videos of artists, created graphics for social media, art exhibitions and annual reports, photographed events, and managed and conducted a “photo studio” program where I would photograph artists’ work for low cost.
I'm not all bark and no bite! I have earned national and state-level awards for video editing, screenwriting, animation, and more.
Outside of work, you can find me outdoors hiking or doing nature photography. If it's too cold, I'll be inside drawing in a sketchbook and probably drinking too much coffee.
