WE’RE A WORX FAMILY

Our team is made up of five dedicated people with a shared mission– to bring your vision to life. Each person has a fundamental role in creating the company culture that you see today and the work that comes out of our loft. We’re bold, we’re gutsy and we’re authentically ourselves.

Laura Wallace

Laura Wallace

Owner/Creative Director

Laura is our inspiration junkie. She builds relationships and nurtures new client interactions. Whether developing concepts for creative spaces or strategizing how to build brand equity, she’s involved in each step of the process. Outside of Worx, you can find her public speaking, collecting Christmas trees and spending time with family.

Amber Buhrman

Amber Buhrman

Brand Strategist

Amber is our life-long learner who wants to be a student forever. She thrives on developing strategies for branding, websites, and campaigns to streamline processes and fuel results. Outside of Worx, you can find her taking the family out hiking on the Appalachian Trail, paddling away on a kayak or discovering goat yoga.

Tyler Royer

Junior Designer

With the ability to communicate a message and create feeling through graphic design, Tyler works closely with the senior design team to carry out new and existing brands through campaign design, website design, and space branding. In his free time, he plays guitar, goes to as many concerts as possible and is an avid collector of tattoos.

Kelli Hoton

Communications Assistant

Kelli is the first person you may see when you visit our office. Not only is she a friendly face, but also a skillful marketer and communicator for Worx. She’s got an eye for grammar and is the voice behind our content. When she’s not at work, you can find her exploring abandoned structures or singing karaoke.

AJ Wallace

Space Branding Specialist

AJ is our resident jack-of-all-trades, focusing on the form and functionality of space branding. He uses his fancy virtual camera and AutoCAD to create strong office layout designs. He’s often the first person you’ll see with a tape measure and the last person you’ll see through installation. When he’s not drafting, he’s taste testing as many IPA’s as possible.

GIVING BACK

Worx takes a lot of pride in being more than just a design firm. We are advocates of positivity and our move to downtown Hagerstown has given us a special opportunity to serve as a resource to help grow our community from within. From spending time with students in grade school to university, attending local charities, participating in fun runs or using our skills to create branding for impactful events– we thrive on making a difference any way we can.

WRAPT BY WORX
As a family-oriented group, the winter and holiday season is something Worx holds near and dear. Everyone deserves to have a warm winter, which is why we created the initiative Wrapt by Worx, where we hand-cut and package hundreds of scarves to deliver to our local Salvation Army centers, women’s shelters, rescue missions and anywhere else that a cozy pick-me-up is needed. Please reach out to us if there’s anyone you know who would benefit from Wrapt by Worx this season.

LEADERCAST
As attendees of Leadercast for the past four years, Worx was ecstatic to serve as an official host site for the Leadercast Women’s Event. Our loft was filled with goal-oriented and talented women who are powered by purpose for a day of inspiration and learning. Leadercast is a platform and guide to inspire leaders worth following. The series of learning solutions and events featuring notable success stories equips individuals, teams, organizations and corporations across all industries and locations to become and foster leaders who are changing the world.
IN THE COMMUNITY
We love using our time, knowledge and resources to give back to the community, especially to support and develop our local youth. We’ve met incredible talent from kindergarten to college, and have had the pleasure to visit organizations like Unified Community Connections and Girls Inc. to encourage continuing education. Worx also welcomes frequent job and student shadowers, studio tours, private portfolio reviews and participates in college speaking panels and high school career fairs every year. These kids are incredibly inspiring and we can’t wait to see what they bring to the world.

LEADERCAST

As attendees of Leadercast for the past four years, Worx was ecstatic to serve as an official host site for the Leadercast Women’s event in 2017. Our loft was filled with goal-oriented and talented women powered by purpose. The momentum continued in the spring of 2018 as an official host of Leadercast in partnership with Hagerstown Community College, and again with Leadercast Women in the fall.

THE DEFINITION OF GUTSY

At the core of every brand, there’s a story. There’s an emotional connection that leaves people with an unforgettable experience. We call this drive “gutsy.” It’s a feeling that lives in every step you take. It’s an ability to make a decision when a fear or doubt is present, and it’s that same feeling that is a sign when you’re right on the brink of something amazing. Gutsy knows no bounds­– it’s international, it doesn’t run out or deplete and it exists within every risk-taker that we are fortunate to work with.
