Lauren & Hannah

The Founders

Lauren Watson, Owner & Creative Director of Lion House, offering full-service creative event production, weddings, and design, is a North Carolina native where hospitality comes naturally. Combined with her many years of California living, she’s cultivated an eye for a classic-cool style. She’s a go-get-em girl with ultimate gumption and has the ability to take initiative and make things happen. With a background in Ocean Engineering, she is equal parts nerdy as she is creative. Lauren is a mastermind of logistical management, decision making, and is a social occasion enthusiast with a love for bringing people together.

Hannah Lee, Owner & Creative Director of Otherlove, is a fellow North Carolinian. Specializing in branding, web, and marketing, Otherlove crafts brands that are strategic, meaningful, detail-oriented, and beautiful. Hannah loves to get down to the nitty gritty of what makes a business special and how to visualize this to their people. Otherlove brands are known for being clean, creative, and standout. With a BFA in Communication Design from Parsons the New School for Design in NYC, Hannah now runs her studio out of the vibrant Triangle community working with businesses new and established, small and large, local and global.
