Introducing Lauren Howell, GB’s New Digital Product Manager
Meet Lauren Howell, our new Digital Product Manager. Lauren is an interactive producer, visual artist, photographer, experience designer, and the founder of TinyBit Studio. A staunch design thinker and advocate for creating experiences that matter, Lauren believes that “all things start small”—a personal philosophy evidenced by “Look Closely And See,” her Instagram account dedicated to macro flower photography. When she’s not geeking about VR, UX, or the wonders of the natural world, Lauren creates artwork for projects like “Paths of Eternity,” a board game coming soon to Kickstarter.
