Our Creative Director – Lauren Hung
A Sydney-based wordsmith, calligrapher and graphic designer, Lauren Hung combined her background in Fashion Design & Journalism in 2014 when she launched the blackline by lauren.

Building the blackline over the next five years into a reputable calligraphy & graphic design house servicing Luxury, PR, Wedding & Commercial brands, Lauren re-launched the brand as The Blackline Bottega in 2019; transforming it into the multi-disciplinary creative studio it had been progressively growing into.

We've made her sound really suave... but really, when she's not being professional & polished, Lauren is...

01 | Wandering around Sydney with her naturally unruly, curly hair.

02 | Enjoying a glass of wine, in a sun-drenched courtyard and taking it slowly with a novel in hand.

03 | Feeding her insatiable addiction for handmade ceramics and art.

04 | Creating - always creating! Whether it's taking photographs of architecture, to trying her hand at other creative mediums, Lauren's happiness revolves around creating and appreciating beauty.
