Hi, I’m Lauren Costa Stone!

she/her/hers

For more than five years, I've designed intuitive and delightful products. I have an entrepreneurial spirit that can lead or follow as long as we have fun. A New Jersey native and fully adopted Atlantan, I tell it like it is with a smile. I get excited with new challenges and find the best approach is to jump in with both feet. I am continually learning and growing, and I apply everything I know along the way.

I would describe my design process as strategically agile. I start with some foundational product knowledge and then work both quickly and iteratively. This is why my motto is "Start today, refine tomorrow."

"I can't describe how much I learned from Lauren in just the short amount of time that I interned for her at Cognia! She helped me to build on my foundational skills. She is an enthusiastic mentor and never hesitated to answer my (many) questions about the industry. I look forward to working with her again one day!"

“Lauren was able to understand our needs and design our business identity. Because of her vision, we have grown our business exponentially. Our brand has become a household name in my market place due to her originality and understanding of our product. We absolutely would not be where we are today without her vision. "

“Jim Collins described ideal team members this way in Good to Great: “The right people don’t need to be tightly managed or fired up; they will be self-motivated by the inner drive to produce the best results and to be part of creating something great.” Lauren is, without question, one of the most passionate and self-motivated UX designers I have had the privilege of working with. Her energy, thoughtfulness, and pursuit of excellence are infectious, and she is a great asset to any team she works with!”
