Lauren Varian is a graphic designer from Parkfield, California who currently lives in Maynooth, Ireland.  She also works in event production and management, managing Common Grounds artists LemonCello and Hatchlings.

Lauren has played an integral role in the formation and development of Common Grounds Collective from its beginnings in late 2015 and is the collective's chief designer. Lauren is the face behind some of Common Grounds most striking posters, and is also responsible for our wonderful logo, and other imagery used by the collective. 

Her work incorporates intelligent use of colour, and patterns, transmitting a simple but highly effective message. Lauren’s portfolio includes work for Planet Parade, Parkfield Bluegrass Festival, Graham Hopkins, Snap Jackson & the Knock on Wood Players, Des Hopkins, Gaiety School of Acting, and many more.
