About

Lauren Farrow is a 3D designer and artist who has created concept art and 3D assets for a wide range of game projects. She has done work for clients such as Red Panda Games and several important figures in the history of Dungeons & Dragons RPG. Some of Lauren's projects include a 3D space shooter game, a commercial 2D Flash game, a third person platform adventure game and an interactive graphic novel.

With a Bachelor of Arts degree in Fine Art, Lauren also has a large portfolio of paintings and illustrations for private and corporate clients. Her corporate work includes several book illustrations and a storyboard for a 60 second commercial to be produced by Adrenaline Film Productions, Inc., the producers of Survivor seasons 1 — 14.

After undergraduate school in Fine Art, Lauren was offered an internship in graphic design where she used 3D applications such as 3ds Max and Poser as well as 2D graphics software. She then expanded on her 3D skills by earning a Master of Science from Drexel University where she studied architecture and design with a focus on creating digital 3D environments and characters.

Since acquiring her M.S. from Drexel in 2008 Lauren has continued to work on games and has designed 3D trade show environments for clients such as IBM, AMD and Autodesk in venues such as The Lincoln Center, the Museum of Natural History in New York City and The Game Developers Conference at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

In recent years Lauren brought her professional experience to the classroom where she teaches Game Design and Development classes at Daniel Webster College. Outside of the classroom Lauren continues to work on commissioned art and 3D indie game projects.
