SPN interviews Laura Brooker of Holy Cow Design

We recently had an opportunity to catch up with Laura Brooker after hearing great things about the work she’s doing and some of the plans she has.

Laura shared that she’s been turning creative ideas into coordinated print and web designs for about five years now and the process requires that she listens well and guide her clients through until the clients tell her “Holy cow, I love it!“…otherwise known as the “holy cow moment.”

That’s the reaction graphic designer Laura Brooker, owner of holycowdesign.com, wants her clients to have. That reaction was the inspiration for her catchy business name and process.

Originally from Merna, Nebraska and an alum of University of Nebraska at Kearney, Laura moved to Omaha in 2007 for an opportunity with Orion Healthcare Technology. It wasn’t long before she met her husband, Aaron, and after they were married and celebrated a honeymoon adventure to Africa and Israel. When they returned to Omaha in August of last year, she made a move on the opportunity to work alongside her tech-saavy mom (thewebservant.com).

Laura specializes in identity (logos) design, print design and branding with the majority of her clients being small business owners, life coaches, and non-profits.

To this point, Laura has conducted no advertising and most of her business comes from word of mouth or from working with thewebservant.com. She’s just begun to work with other creatives here in Omaha and is truly passionate about what’s in store for the Omaha area.

As one of the goals of Silicon Prairie News is to build and connect or innovators and creative class, we hope you check out Laura’s work and drop her a line to encourage her as well as ask any questions.

Laura is also involved in Renew Omaha, a project focusing on the urban renewal of some of Omaha’s oldest neighborhoods, and Moodie Board, the concept she pitched at the last Creative Capital Pitch Session.
