Lauren Rolwing is an illustrator. Some kind people have described her work as being in the vein of 80's pop graphics, but modern & refined.  

Her influences range from artists Paul Rand, Bruno Munari, Ikko Tanaka, & Kvĕta Pacovská.  She is also influenced other areas of design, including the colors and patterns in 80's Esprit ads, the shapes of Comme des Garçon & Issey Miyake, the sense of humor, patterns, and color from Ettore Sottsass.  Her interests in films also find their way into her illustrations including the symbolism in films by Fellini & Bergman, to the sets & exaggerated, comic gestures from Jacques Tati films.

"In many ways, illustrator Lauren Rolwing embodies her art. Her uncluttered compositions hold an undercurrent of playfulness and whimsy beneath their intelligent designs. So it is with Lauren: her enjoyable conversation is sprinkled with thoughtful references to the films she’s watched, the books she’s read, and the artists she’s been influenced by while her youthful energy and fun spirit keep her words from dipping into inaccessible intellectualism."
