Hi, I'm Lara Torrance :) 

I am a multidisciplinary designer and recent graduate from the Rhode Island School of Design, where I received an honors BFA in Graphic Design.
I consider myself very open minded when it comes to ideas and my work. Having mastered the Adobe Suite, curiosity took me to learn programming in order to code Augmented and Virtual Reality. This opened the doors to my new found love for creative technology, and using emerging technology in playful, social, and non traditional ways. I am a passionate individual with a strong work ethic and desire to learn, I collaborate obsessively, and I learn constantly.
I also enjoy immersing myself in layout & typography for traditional & experimental publications and creating digital animations. Whatever challenge is presented to me as a designer, I’m excited to take it up and am always willing to learn new things. 
I am highly proficient in the full Adobe CS Suite, Unity3D, Xcode & Vuforia AR.  
Other skills include: HTML, C#, ARKit, Github, Rhinoceros 3D, Blender 3D, Cinema 4D

Exhibited in Design Pavilion, NYCxDesign, May 2018
I won a design contest which means my work will be shown in the Design Pavilion in Times Square, NYC, during NYCx Design May 12th-20th. Bright New Things Take Times Square is the culmination of a global design competition, held in partnership with Arts Thread. I was asked to reimagine everyday household objects using Avery Dennison graphic materials. The objects I reimagined will be showcased in an impossible-to-miss, 10-foot-tall glass cube on exhibit as part of  Design Pavilion. The new VELATM dynamic display-window technology will turn the cube’s glass walls into a digital display screen, cycling between rich color and videos of me using Avery Dennison graphic materials and me talking about my work.
