Laura Koch is the senior graphic designer at Metro Creative Graphics. She holds a BA in Communication but followed her artistic passion to start her career as a graphic designer for two newspapers in her hometown of Buffalo, NY. In 2008 she relocated to NYC and landed a graphic design position at Metro, a company she utilized in her previous design work at the Buffalo News. Laura has been with Metro for 12 years now, continually helping the company anticipate and meet the evolving needs of the newspaper industry. She has a great appreciation for what designers on a small staff with tight deadlines can create. Laura puts her passion for layout and design to work in producing ads, section covers, art headings, infographics and editorial layouts, which she hopes will inspire her fellow artists and give them a jumping-off point in their own designs.
