communication designer + linguist

Hi, My name is Lauren Kenny. I am a junior at Carnegie Mellon University studying communication design and linguistics.

I am a designer interested in communication. You will find me pixel pushing to design the perfect letterform that maximized legibility, while also looking for ways to systematically change the way we live to push forward social change. I look for communication challenges in both the small and the large.

I am interested in data visualization, usability, experience design, communication design, typography, color theory, and motion graphics. When I'm not in the studio you can find me on a run in Schenley Park, at a local concert, or making handmade paper.

I am currently looking for Summer 2020 internships and/or freelance work. Please reach out to if you would like to work together or if you just want to talk about design, type, or phonetic alphabets!​​​​​​​
