GRAPHIKNATION® is a full service creative studio led by Creative Director and Principal, Lauren Holley. A natural talent with a creative eye for composition, she was drawing well before she could talk.

“I knew she was an artist by the time she was two years old,” says her mother.

Lauren Holley is the founder of Graphiknation, an Atlanta-based creative studio specializing in interactive design, photography, and branding. Previously, Lauren was creative director at digital agency Definition 6. She holds a degree in visual communications from the Art Institute of Atlanta.

Her recent work has graced the big screen in Times Square, shared the stage with Madonna and gone social with Tegan & Sara. She’s been featured in the Atlanta-Journal Constitution, Atlanta and Oz magazines, and — most recently — won three Reader’s Pick categories in Creative Loafing’s Best of 2015 Awards for Local Artist Instagram, Street Photographer, and Best Fine Arts Photographer (tied with Bhargava Chiluveru).

Born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Lauren lives and works in Atlanta’s historic Old Fourth Ward neighborhood with her partner and 2 fur kids, Miso Puggie & Percy the cat. Lauren is also the founder of Atlanta Urban Photo Walkers, a meetup group exploring and documenting ATL’s changing cityscape.
