I'm René Lausen

graphic designer, web designer, and illustrator

I started Buy Design Graphics in 2001 after nearly a decade as art director at Anderson Communications In Newport Beach, and a three-year stint at Orange Coast Magazine—starting as an intern and working my way up to Advertising Art Director.

At Buy Design Graphics our main objective has always been to produce powerful, eye-catching print and digital graphics—showcasing our clients' goods and/or services. While primarily catering to our clients graphics needs, we are also fully capable of handling art direction, copywriting, printing, illustration, and photography. We truly hope you'll find our services meet your needs and exceed your expectations.

Applications we have mastered:
  • Photoshop
  • Illustrator
  • Dreamweaver
  • InDesign
  • SketchUp

A Few Kind Words

We love our job, but it's even more satisfying when we hear how pleased our clients are!

Miya Hisaka

As an Executive/Artistic Director of multiple arts organizations over the past 30 years both in the USA and Latin America, René has been one of the best designers we have worked with to date. He is not only talented but he also is so easy to work with. Unlike so many designers, he really listens to our needs, and delivers exactly what we ask for — a rarity in his industry. I cannot give him high enough recommendations in terms of his artistic talent and administrative follow up. A true delight to work with creative and great vision!

Jackie Politiski

I have had the pleasure of working with René for more than two decades. In addition to being a very talented graphic and fine artist, René has been an incredibly valuable business partner. After our tenure at Anderson Communications, we both broke off and started our own businesses. René has been my go-to art director, always providing excellent work that demonstrates his understanding of the clients' objectives. His attention to detail and strategic marketing skills have been invaluable to the success of my marketing communications company. He has never failed to bring in a project on time, on budget and above expectations.

William Braun

I've used a lot of web developers only to have the execution fall flat on it's face. You can call René anytime, and he returns calls! I've been using Buy Design Graphics for years and would recommend them to anyone. René's extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his profession. He listens to you and comes through with everything from design, data input to letterhead on time! I will use no other designer.

Thanks, René! Your work looked great and the service was prompt! (From a handwritten note attached to payment for completed project—a t-shirt design for the 26th Annual Don Burns' Corona del Mar One Mile Ocean Swim)
