After graduating from FIDM and receiving a bachelor's degree from Chapman University, Lauren Livingston began working for online retail store Cultwine.com, where she realized a passion for designing, maintaining, and managing websites. "So I decided to start my own web design business, Lauren Livingston Design, and Cultwine is still one of my best clients," she explains. "Running my own business allows me to have full creative freedom and I get to interact with clients from many different industries, which makes it constantly interesting."
Lauren says that FIDM helped prepare her for this fast-paced career by giving her real world experience in the classroom. "FIDM is unlike any other school in that, it focuses its classes on projects that give students a real glimpse into owning their own business."
