My name is Lauren and I love to design
I live and work on the Central Coast of New South Wales. I offer quality, affordable website design and graphic design solutions to small to medium business in the form of logos, letterheads, business cards, brochures, promotional material, websites, emails, and anything else you throw at me.
I love the creative process. My solutions are carefully thought out and often extend beyond visual design to include both ideas and words for your project. I am a big believer in balancing form and function. My designs don’t just look good… they work – at least that’s what these people think.
(And other things you don’t know about me)
Aside from being passionate about design, I am also passionate about looking after people and the planet. With this in mind I conduct my business as ethically as possible with minimal impact on our environment.
When undertaking any project, there are 3 key objectives that underpin my work.

“Working with Tomato Creative was like having a creative team at my disposal – Lauren listened patiently to what I wanted, offered her expertise when I needed it and wove her creative magic to develop a beautiful and functional website that’s perfect for my clientele. The icing on the cake was the very reasonable price tag. I highly recommend Tomato Creative and will be going back again!”Laura Luchi
“We have been working with Tomato Creative for the past seven years and we couldn’t be happier with the service and results received. Lauren’s expertise is invaluable to our business and she has a gift for understanding our brand and developing our company image. Lauren has not only achieved fresh and contemporary designs for our website, but also substantially advanced our E-Marketing campaigns, by single-handedly streamlining our database and managing our social networking profile. Her dedication to achieving the best results for our business is always apparent and the results are a testament to her professionalism.”Anna Peters
“I have relied on Lauren for over 10 years to undertake work in areas such as developing a brand image, creating websites, establishing and testing an e-commerce credit card webpage, creating and managing a monthly newsletter, having pages of my website translated and everything in between, Lauren has been more than capable of handling. I would have to say that I could not imagine having anyone else do this work considering the quality, the dedication and the output of the work is nothing less than the best. Everyday that I look at my brand image it inspires me to develop the company further. ”Peter Mcrae
Lauren Pothof has been our graphic designer for some years now and I love working with her. I’m constantly amazed at how she keeps coming up with new and different images and ideas for a range of jobs. She is a natural at design and the love of her work manifests in everything she does. It is fresh, creative and spot on. A true professional and nothing is too much trouble for her. I would recommend her to anyone.”Penny Pyett
Lauren has provided a number of design services to me over the years including website, logo, print and copywriting. Her unique and creative ways are unrivaled and her attention to detail leaves you relaxed and confident that the job will be perfect. I recommend her to anyone looking for something special.Samantha Morgan Celebrant
“Lauren has just completed our website design and construction and we couldn’t be happier. Right from the start, Lauren listened to what we wanted and worked hard at incorporating our ideas into the finished product. Lauren showed us how to maintain the website and edit it if need be and made it very simple to understand.
Having some knowledge of our industry also helped Lauren to customise our web page and make it work for our particular needs and customer base.
Lauren has been really easy to work with and has done a fantastic job for us. We would recommend her very highly to any prospective customers.”
Lauren demonstrated her creative skills in a very professional manner on this design brief. She listened attentively to my instructions, sought clarification when required and made constructive suggestions where they were needed.
As a graphic designer, Lauren maintained a short deadline in completing the design alternatives for discussion, provided constructive criticism on the options, and then completed the final design set ahead of schedule. Because of her contacts in the printing industry Lauren was able to follow the design and publishing task through to completion. A bonus when time is short!
