Lauren Graycar is a graphic designer and publisher. She has collaborated with a range of creative concerns in Los Angeles—where she lives and works—on projects across traditional and new media. A guiding interest in her work is how craft crosses physical and abstract boundaries. Working as a commissioned designer, she believes that a meaningful design process examines where our individual visual biographies intersect.

She has lectured at Gerrit Rietveld Academie and UCLA Extension on her practice and position within a broader global design context. Past exhibitions include Chapters: Book Arts in Southern California at the Craft Contemporary (Los Angeles) and Oh!, a solo exhibition of publishing work at Ditch Projects (Springfield, OR).

Collaborators include Asia Society of Northern California, Building Block, BRUCE, East of Borneo, Zoë Ghertner, Hammer Museum, Iko Iko, William Leavitt, Maimoun, Ooga Booga, Nathan Rickard, UCLA Department of Art, and Mrs Wong’s.

Since 2013 she has run the publishing imprint Kima. Select editions from Kima are archived in the Metropolitan Museum of Art Thomas J. Watson Library special collections.
