ABOUT


Lena Louisa Meyer Goss

I am a Greeley, CO based Designer, born and raised in Germany.

I have worked, lived and studied in Germany, Switzerland, Sweden and the US.

My diversified education and experience cover the fields of interior-, furniture-, web-, graphic- and apparel-design as well as architecture and artist management.

About my Design Experience and Education


When I was about fifteen years old, after school and during summer breaks, I started working in my father’s small graphic design company that was specialized in Logo design, sign making and vinyl cutting.

My first college degree I obtained as a technical assistant in garment engineering. I enjoyed the creative part of this education but quickly realized that the fashion business was not for me.

So I moved on to study interior architecture and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 2009. As part of my undergraduate studies I moved to Zurich/Switzerland, where for 6 months I worked as an intern for an interior design and architecture company that mainly focused on high-end residential projects.

I continued working as a graphic designer in my father’s company and eventually moved to Sweden, where in 2013 I achieved my Masters Degree in Furniture Design at the University of Gothenburg.

After graduate school I initially started working as a freelance designer, mainly in the field of web design, creating webpages for small businesses, musicians and artists.

Parallel to this, I participated in a 2 month, intensive course in 3D modeling. In this course I significantly improved my 3D modeling and rendering skills.

From early 2014 until I moved to the United States in 2015 I was employed as an architectural drafter (2D and 3D), mainly working on initial design concepts, floor plan optimizations and interior design projects.

Since early 2016 I am working as a project- and web-designer for Timeless Travel Trailers, a Colorado based company that is Airstream’s most experienced authorized upfitter and leader in the design and production of custom trailers and motorized vehicles for recreational and marketing purposes.
