Lauren continues to enthuse the performance community with her design and innovation - here is a sampling of some recent projects:

- David Andrew Smith, a singer-songwriter, contracted Lauren to do banner, flyers, art-direction, website art-direction, posters, and design his new CD cover and CD disks. Below is a screen-capture of Lauren's actual computer, as it shows David's 11"x17" posters being designed in Photoshop.

Lauren Muney's design of international juggler Christian Harel's DVD

- Actress Mary Ann Jung's History Alive website, videos, DVD, and brochure. Just yet another example of how it takes someone inside the performance community (Lauren) to understand the needs of others.

- Brian Rudo hired Lauren to rebrand all his promotional materials, banner, posters, DVD, and even redesign the look of his show. Hesuccessfuly parleyed his new marketing and branding materials into new successful seasons and events.

- Christian Harel (shown at right - click for larger image), international artistic juggler, currently performing in Europe, arranged for Lauren to design the cover for his sample-DVD and one of his websites. Chris relied on Lauren to advise for new marketing and branding, and subsequently he was booked on his current international engagement.

---Remember when...?WhipFlash! on the Steve Harvey Big Time show

was featured on Steve Harvey's Big Time television show, debuting in Nov 2003, and airing more several times in 2004. The duo performed whip tricks using Steve Harvey himself, and taped over 25 minutes in front of a live audience. Lauren is still recognized in person - even in 2008 - for these television appearances!
