About Laura Rike

"Design is directed toward human beings. To design is to solve human problems by identifying them and executing the best solution." Ivan Chermayeff, contemporary designer

Offering creative design solutions to solve business problems is what I do best. My clients come to me with a business problem they are struggling with and I partner with them to develop exciting and flexible marketing collaterals that build brand awareness, promote product benefits, enhance the product's professional appearance, and in turn contribute to sustained ROI for their business. Cognizant of the importance of balancing the client's needs and vision with practical and cost-efficient design formats, I strive to develop solutions that are inviting and interesting but also mirror the client's core values and mission.

In addition to my design and production skills, I have been told that we can instantly inject energy and promote a no quit attitude that are assets rarely found. Coupled with this I have an incredible work ethic and desire to grow. I am extremely reliable and I have a knack for taking limited information from clients and creating several options to meet their needs.

I ask for a few minutes of your time, so we can further explore the contribution I could bring to your project. Please contact me by phone 651-428-2636 or by email at Laura.Rike@gmail.com. I look forward to hearing from you.

While working for Group 3 Marketing, Laura Rike has established herself as a senior designer, taking on projects that require both high levels of creativity and technical skills and frequently working under very fast pace deadlines. She has been responsible for illustrations, invitations, postcards, social media initiatives, newsletters, reports and posters/displays. She is experienced in all the appropriate graphic design software and continues to learn new skills and expanding her talents outside of traditional print-based media. Laura has impressed our clients with her creativity and also with her consistent and timely communication skills. Future employers should feel confident that their requests and communications will be addressed in a timely manner and with consistent quality.

Laura Rike worked as a graphic designer for Group 3 Marketing, one of CsomoProf Beauty vendors. She did quite a bit of work for us, from covering shows for us via social media and posting to our Facebook and Twitter channels. She also designed many print jobs for us. Laura always completed her jobs on time and was pleasant to work with. When she worked our social media channels she did an amazing job and was always professional and posted with ease as the CosmoProf "voice." Laura would be a wonderful addition to any team, she was delightful to work with. Toni Ford Senior Marketing Multi-Media Designer for CosmoProf Beauty

Laura's creativity, artistic talent, and willingness to think outside the box enable her to create amazing works of graphic design. Her knowledge of web design best practices and modern trends lets her take that talent and apply it to digital media in a way that guarantees you'll stand up and take notice.

This was my first internship ever and I was very lucky to have Laura as my boss. She was very helpful in explaining assignments as well as giving me tasks that allowed me to grow professionally and learn new skills. Working for Laura truly was a great opportunity that I was so grateful to have.
