Thoughtful Design isn't just a name. It is an all encompassing process focused on simple effective solutions. The common factor for every project: a variety of thoughtful approaches specific to your project.

Hello, my name is Laura Hess and I'm the human proud of TD. I'm a freelance designer based in Huntingdon, PA. I have an extensive graphic design and photography portfolio. I have specialized in physical marketing materials, and personalized print products to help my clients truly reach their customers.

I love to do simple line work illustration. And I am an aspiring children's book author, as well as, a general book enthusiast. I'm very passionate about the stories we tell, local economy, and a true sense of community. I spend all my other hours in life growing food for my beautiful family on Steele Farm.

I am not a traditional portrait, landscape or architect photographer. I consider myself a natural light lifestyle photographer focused on capturing your moments, details & mood. I only retain a clause that the final images you receive not be retouched or manipulated. The reproduction rights for those final images are turned over to you so you can print them and distribute them as you please. I consider my photography an art and am honored to be part of my client's special moments.
