Hi, I'm Laura Wentzel. I'm a desert dwelling graphic designer and illustrator based just outside of Phoenix, Arizona. Bears Eat Berries is an independent design studio that specializes in design collaborations with creative brands. Be it package design, branding, publication design or illustration, I love the process of collaborating with creative business-owners to design fresh identities that help businesses communicate with authenticity.

My design work is influenced by the imperfect beauty of the natural world and I love to capture simplicity at its best. My minimal aesthetic is noticeable in all my design projects, and my belief in the importance of whimsy shows up in the form of an occasional silly animal gracing the cover of a thank you card.

Bears Eat Berries products have been featured on blogs including Design*SpongePoppytalkOh So Beautiful PaperDesign-MilkFood Network BlogMoorea Seal and Babble and have been enjoyed by clients all around the globe.

Outside of my studio, I can be found exploring the outdoors (I still have not learned not to pet a cactus), watching chefs do their magic and eating their beautiful food, dreaming up my next travel adventure, collecting beautiful textiles, and taking photos of my ridiculous dog, Bandit. Want to learn even more?
