Laura Morris

Creative Director

Laura Morris has a compelling life story. Initially launching her career in the publishing world, she played a significant role in the design of many budding tech publications in her early years. This brought her to San Francisco where she witnessed the ever-expanding tech bubble of the early 2000s.

During her time in the Bay Area, Laura worked at Imagine Media, founded by TED’s Chris Anderson, where she designed gaming and tech magazines for the company as creative director. Laura was also a founding member of successful new economy magazine Business 2.0, which focused on the many ways the internet impacts business. The magazine grew to an all-paid circulation of 350,000 and won numerous awards in the publishing industry during Laura’s tenure, including Best Overall Magazine.

Her passion is big picture thinking, exploring innovative ideas, and developing creative solutions that lead to transformation.

Continuing her work for TED, Laura designed a 100-page event book for TED conferences. The final piece featured participants ranging from television producer Norman Lear to filmmaker Albert Maysles, photographer Spencer Tunick, and futurist Raymond Kurzweil. She went on to provide art direction for more than 30 TED books which extended the aims, objectives, and inspirations of the TED conference format.

Returning to her home state of North Carolina as an independent contractor in 2001, Laura became the creative director and an integral piece of the founding staff for Edutopia magazine, an educational work published by the George Lucas Educational Foundation. Edutopia won Best New Publication at the Maggie Awards in its first year of publication.

Back in NC, Laura helped launch Berkshire Living, the premier lifestyle and culture magazine for the greater Berkshire region. She also created cover art for over 75 high-quality e-book titles for publishing startup, SheBooks.

She is dedicated to leading the company's brand strategy into a new era in the years to come.

Before coming to Window World, Laura was hired by the creative agency, Common Giant. During her time there, Laura created presentations for internal teams pitching to international clients that included: Neiman Marcus, Adidas, John Varvatos, Carrefour, Aldo, Fidelity, Tractor Supply Co., Sub-Zero, 7-Eleven, and Credit Suisse to name a few.

Laura started at Window World in the spring of 2017, and she has worked to reshape and elevate the brand since her arrival. She introduced Window World’s updated logo and “Circle W” symbol during her first Owners Forum in late 2017, and she is dedicated to leading the company’s brand strategy into a new era in the years to come.
