Design. Develop. Teach.
I’m a Creative. I’m a Graphic Designer, Speaker, Content Creator and Adobe Certified Instructor.
Hi, I'm Laurie Ruhlin
I’ve been a freelance graphic designer, instructor and speaker for 20+ years. I’m an active user of InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Bridge and Acrobat for my freelance projects of all types. I’m a Creative Pro Week speaker and a contributor to InDesign Magazine as well as a Certified Pro for in5 from Ajar Productions.
Over the years, I’ve created print brochures, catalogs, PDF forms and digital documents. I’ve formatted books for print thru Amazon’s KDP and Kindle ePub, created web sites, logos, t-shirt graphics, infographics, photo collages and created Photobooks.

Training & Speaking
From my diverse graphic design freelance work, I bring a wealth of real-world knowledge into the classroom. I can create a customized class for a few students, a comprehensive training session for 100+ students or a seminar or workshop type session.
- Speaking Engagements
- Custom Training
- One-on-one Training and Consulting
I truly enjoy teaching both the basics to the emerging designer as well as showing tips and tricks to the advanced power users in InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop.
