The Short

Hi, I'm Laura Ford, and this is my fourth year studying user experience design at SCAD. I'm currently getting my hands dirty at a start-up as a product design intern at Impactive. When I'm not solving problems, you'll find me sewing an outfit, running with friends, or hiking with my pup.

The Long

I was born and raised in the upstate of South Carolina. I filled my days running all over the soccer field, and then going home and bedazzling whatever I could get my hands on. I've always been one to work creatively; I transformed cereal boxes into pencil cases and sold them at middle school, marketed my braiding skills as a pre-game styling service, and pulled off a jean jacket painting business as my part-time job in eighth grade.

 

A couple of decades later, I'm still pursuing the same creative energy. I completed an entirely dual-enrolled high school career at the University of South Carolina. Now thankful to attend SCAD, I am creating work in an incredibly diverse and cutting-edge environment. I am working towards my user experience design degree, with an entrepreneurship minor, and a focus on e-commerce retailing.

While completing some university projects this past year, I've had the pleasure of working with Deloitte to rethink the future of creator commerce on a student team at SCADpro. In addition to my current internship, I am always excited to get more experience, so take a look at my resume and let's make some magic together!
