Hi! My name is

Loren Miqual Holloway

and I’m incredibly excited to begin my career in design. My specialties are print, packaging and web design. I always strive to be friendly, inspired and up for new challenges.

I’m a classic film buff, a glam rock fan and occasionally make fun things out of paper.
