"Most designers and artists tend to fall into two categories: gifted but hard to work with OR accommodating but mediocre. Whether it's been in the role of creative director or as a project manager, artist, or most recently, as an interior designer, Anthony is both talented and professional. After collaborating with Anthony for more than 15 years, it brings a smile to my face just writing these words as he creates very original, special designs, affordably, and miraculously—on time. He is a joy to work with and he does his job with minimum drama and a generous spirit. I can't say enough about him both professionally and personally."
—Chip Conley, Founder of Joie de Vivre Hospitality
We've had an amazing experience working with Anthony and his team for our new hotel project and the redesign of its sister property. They've brought an incredible combination of vision, talent, creativity, sensibility, and pragmatism to our project. They conceived and designed every element of our properties; multifaceted resorts, including guest rooms, retail, restaurant/tavern, public spaces, outdoor areas, and our identity and branded items. Anthony has created a unique design personality for both Rush Creek Lodge and Evergreen Lodge with a distinctive, cohesive brand that befits each product, our location, customer, and aspirations. Anthony is also just a really great person and we absolutely love working with him. There is nobody we would rather work with.

In that time, he has consistently produced smart and sophisticated work that has garnered our organization significant praise and attention. He is the rare person whose expert opinion can be trusted completely because he thoughtfully engages with both the material and the client on a conceptual as well as pragmatic level.”
I've learned a lot from Anthony over the years and have had a lot of fun along the way too. Working with him has been one of the best professional relationships I've ever had."

“It has been a pleasure to work with Anthony on all of the creative aspects of our wine business. He has applied his vast experience to all things creative—from graphic and web design to collateral material, labels, photography, and promotional videos. Anthony has taken our branding needs and made them his own, adding a new level of sophistication and style to our identity. He understands the bigger picture, focuses on the objectives and translates them into beautiful designs that are cohesive and connected. As a contractor he integrates well with the team, he is always positive and a pleasure to work with.”
His experience in other industries adds a great dimension to our wine world. I feel very fortunate to have Anthony as part of our team.

“I was inspired to start a new magazine covering the sprawling global culture that was emerging through art, film, music, and fashion and asked Anthony to be the art director. Together we managed to launch and produce several issues despite financial and industry challenges. PLANET’s first issue would have died a dozen deaths if it wasn’t for the focus and fortitude of Anthony, not to mention his versatile design talent, printing knowledge, and skill as an art director to take my wide-ranging visions and translate them onto page. I’ve since been very happy to see how he’s grown in so many other areas and contributed to the success of numerous companies. In working with Anthony you don’t just get a talented creative, which he is, you get a partner with perseverance and integrity and the will to see things through. I’m forever grateful to him for his help and determination.”
—Derek Peck, Founder, Planet Magazine

“At launch, AnalogFolk worked with Anthony Laurino in the development of the AnalogFolk brand. The brief to Anthony was to develop a brand identity that brought to life AnalogFolk's positioning as an agency that fuses together digital and physical brand experiences. In addition to delivering stellar creative work with a tremendous attention to detail, Anthony brought an experience and maturity to the project that was extremely valuable. He worked with the diverse opinions of the founding partners in order to galvanize that brand idea and deliver a strong identity that has given AnalogFolk a foundation from which to succeed.”
