Hi, I’m Lauren Costa Stone!


During the last seven years, I have designed intuitive and delightful user experiences focusing on SaaS applications. A New Jersey native and fully adopted Atlantan, I tell it like it is with a smile. I have an entrepreneurial spirit, get excited about new challenges, and find the best approach is to jump in with both feet. I am continually learning and growing, applying everything I know.

My design process is strategically agile. I leverage information architecture and research to navigate the problem space and work iteratively and quickly to evolve the user experience. That's why my motto is "Start today, refine tomorrow."

As a design approach, Universal Design aims to create environments that are accessible, understandable, and usable by all individuals, regardless of their age, background, or abilities.

Creating inclusive digital environments takes more thought and planning, but these practices benefit all users.

In this presentation, we explore what accessible design is, why it is so important, and how to get started.

"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!"

“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!”
