Lorena Howard-Sheridan



Lorena is a Mexican-American graphic designer. She divides her time between teaching and her studio practice, running a small publishing company—Salted Caramel Books—that specializes in experimental and collaborative projects. Her background is in publishing and identity design, and she is always looking to expand her knowledge in Typography. Lorena loves the fact that she has lived and worked in several cities, gaining an understanding of diverse approaches to design (and to life), a gift that is ever-enriching to both her teaching and professional practice.
