Laura McCoy is a Founder of TollesonMcCoy in Nashville
Laura McCoy is the managing partner of TollesonMcCoy in Nashville, Tennessee, which she and Ansley Tolleson founded in 2005. Shocked to find herself at this age and experience level, Laura has designed signage, wayfinding systems, logos, print pieces, interior branding projects, donor recognition walls, patient warning icons, and much more.
Clients you may have heard of include Omni Hotels, The State of Tennessee, Warner Music Group, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, the Nashville Ballet, Pilot Flying J, and Vanderbilt University.
Laura’s neighborhood sign was published in Southern Living and her East Nashville logo has become a Snapchat filter. Her current challenges include learning how to delegate, finding room to store all of her different TM hats, and helping to start SEGD Nashville.
Laura McCoy enjoys working as a team with architects, designers and owners to achieve the best solution for a project. She believes that applied designs should work with a space, not overpower it, and follows the philosophy “Less is more.”
Laura has a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art, Graphic Design from the University of Tennessee and a Master’s Degree in Teaching from Belmont University. Both scholastic programs, however, pale in comparison to the lessons she has learned in an undisclosed number of years working with fabricators, clients and other designers.
