Deer Arrow head of design
Lauren is not only one of Deer Arrow's creators, she is also our main designer.
She loves bringing whimsy and a little bit of magic into each one of her designs. Lauren loves varying themes and she is always asking the rest of the team for ideas.

Andrea Smith is a Sydney based illustrator and designer whose charm-filled, hands-on work recalls a lost innocence rarely seen in today’s fast-paced times. Hers is a world rich in storytelling; each illustration drawing the viewer in to take a closer look, resulting in an unexpected (yet always welcome) ‘smile in the mind’.
Andrea’s handmade collages are assembled from her large collection of hand painted papers, giving new life to forgotten tactile beauty. It’s this one-of-a-kind charm seen throughout Andrea’s designs - whether collage, paper cut, or textile print - that capture the imagination and give it flight in ways that words often can’t.
