Thoughtful Design isn't just a name. It is an all encompassing process focused on simple effective solutions. We explore a variety of thoughtful approaches specific to your project.

Hello, my name is Laura Hess and I'm the human behind all things Thoughtful Design. I am proud to say, I was born and raised in the Huntingdon County area. I’ve called these beautiful PA hills home base all of my life but I’m also an adventurer. I’ve always been passionate about collecting stories and it’s now my job to help others communicate their narratives best.

I am a self trained graphic designer with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication from Juniata College here in Huntingdon, PA. Since starting my freelance business in college, I’ve worked with a variety of clients to build an extensive design and photography portfolio. I get to wear many hats in my job as I take your big general ideas and turn them into fully implemented solutions.

I am not a traditional portrait, landscape or architect photographer.
