little em designs logo

Hi. My name is Laurie Thomas and I'm a freelance graphic designer.
Need something done well and in a timely manner? Let me help you out!


graphic design

I love design. I'll create something brand new, just for you. Or take anything and make it look better.

Signs, posters, invitations, business cards – anything. Just let me know what you have in mind and I can make it happen.

identity design

Who are you? How do you want people to feel when they think of your business? Your logo should show who you are. It is your identity.

Along with creating new logo designs, I also modify current logos to better fit your business.

web design

Something I have fun doing is creating, modifying, and updating websites, as well as email marketing. Getting your name out there and associated with an aesthetically-pleasing (and usable) online presence is essential.

I create websites through straight-up coding HTML and CSS, but I also work with content management systems such as joomla! and WordPress. For email marketing, I have experience with MailChimp and Constant Contact.


Helping people use technology is one of my passions. I don't think anyone should be struggling with technology – we should be enjoying it and its benefits!

If you want to learn how to use your computer better and more efficiently, let me know! I'd be glad to help you and/or your company learn Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, or Dreamweaver; even Microsoft Word or PowerPoint! (And others, of course, just ask!)

about me

I graduated from Purdue University with a major in Professional Writing and minors in Art & Design and Computer Technology. After graduation, I started working as a proofreader for a marketing company. When a graphic design position became available, I proved my worth as a graphic designer who could also proofread – which meant I spent less time making corrections and more time WORKING. I loved it and so did they. In 2010, I left my job to become a stay at home mom for my daughter Emily. Now, I do freelance graphic design to keep my skills sharp – and because I can't imagine not doing it!
