Artistic design and development of covers, advertising, and other various visual and marketing projects for Wolfpack Publishing, CKN Christian Publishing and Wise Wolf books.
Wolfpack Publishing has announced the advancement of in-house Internet Development Coordinator Laura Sarrafan to the new position of company Art Director.
Growing up with a camera in her hand, Sarrafan began shooting professional portrait photography at age 14. She fondly remembers her first camera, a twin lens reflex camera with waist viewfinder, passed down to her by her mother. Once she discovered single lens reflex cameras, she was hooked. While continuing her professional photographic work, she was also high school Photo Editor and Chief Editor of her high school yearbook, as well as served as Student Body Officer, Historian.
Sarrafan went on to attend Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California, where she studied photography with an emphasis on advertising and portraiture. Wanting her design skills to be broad, she has studied photography, graphic design, drafting, and interior design. Sarrafan is truly passionate about design theory as she loves to learn and continues to study and develop new skills, such as coding for front end web development. During her academic years, her photography as well as artwork was recognized with numerous awards and citations for outstanding achievement.
Sarrafan was later hired by the clothing company The Territory Ahead, where she designed sale catalogues, advertising, in-store signage, as well as a wide variety of other visual projects. She was then promoted to Photo Editor, as such she negotiated with stock image agencies and with photographers around the world to obtain image use rights. Sarrafan spent countless hours hovering over a massive lightbox sifting through stacks of slides in search of the perfect shot for every image needed for the advertising department. While she created and built up a large in-house image library, she went on-location to photograph images to further enhance the selection of imagery, as well as directed some product photoshoots.
