Laurène is a graphic designer at Nissen Richards Studio who works across temporary and permanent exhibition design from the research and concept stage through to realisation.
She joined Nissen Richards Studio in 2017, shortly after graduating from a MA in Visual Communication at the Royal College of Art. Prior to this, she completed a BA in Graphic Design at the Haute Ecole d’Art et Design, Geneva (CH). She has interned at Fabrique in Delft (NL) as well as Alternative Communication in Geneva.
Since joining the office Laurène has been involved in the design and production of international and UK based exhibitions, including institutions such as The National Library of Norway, The Science and Industry Museum, The Wallace Collection and The Dulwich Picture Gallery. Laurène is currently developing the wayfinding and interpretation design of the Courtauld Institute of Art due to open in 2021.
Having a keen interest in print as well as exploring physical space within exhibition design and spatial design, Laurène often explores the intersection of both two-dimensional and three-dimensional mediums. Her MA thesis ‘The Paginated Exhibition’ was based on the relationship between the exhibition catalogue and the physical space of the exhibition.
