WHO IS PHILIPPE?

 

PHILIPPE lazaro IS A CREATIVE DIRECTOR SEEKING TO CREATE GLOBAL CHANGE THROUGH COMPELLING STORIES AND DESIGN

Once Martin Luther King said that the most urgent and persistent question in life is– what are you doing for others? I agree with that a hundred percent. Whenever I've seen people get deeply invested in a cause, a mission, or something bigger than themselves, I see them come fully alive.

One of the big challenges is going beyond ourselves. And that's where my love of travel and storytelling come in. Exploring forces out of our routines and patterns and sharpens our awareness. Stories build empathy and connect us with each other. I believe that a moving story can be told through any medium, from writing and design to food and music. I mainly offer the following services:

Collateral Design
Core Messaging
Copywriting
Logo Design
Illustration
Editorial Design
Social Media Assets & Strategy
Typeface or Hand Lettering

Photography
Copywriting
Brand Identity Systems & Guidelines
Creative Direction
Design Leadership
Naming
Squarespace Web Development
Packaging and Signage Design

PAST COLLABORATIONS: RELEVANT Magazine, Plant With Purpose, Liberty in North Korea, Conscious Magazine, University of Oregon, Converge Magazine

SPEAKING

Need a speaker to inspire your audience and spark imagination? That's what I like doing!

I enjoy speaking about finding purpose in your work through joy and justice. I also enjoy speaking about my work with Plant With Purpose and how sustainability can transform the lives of some of the planet’s most vulnerable communities.

I also lead creative workshops including Branding: Not Just a Logo and Ethical Storytelling.

I've spoken at churches and universities, schools, retirement centers, corporate events, coffee shops, and everything in between! Every talk I deliver is designed to fit the event and the audience. I see each event as an opportunity to offer purpose, connection, and experience.

 
 
 
 
 
Doing Good in an Age of Anger 1.jpg

We live in contentious times. If you turn on the news for a few minutes, take a quick look at your Facebook news feed, or ask somebody for a quick political opinion, you'll notice that people are angry and divided.

It's difficult to do good in this sort of climate. Our best efforts to help other people are often politicized and turned into arguments. We believe in standing up for what's right and just, but we also don't want to add to the division. How can we find a path through these tricky times?

I've wondered that same thing. I've put together the best principles I've learned together in a totally free roadmap so you can navigate these times with grace.
