About Laneen Wells

Laneen is a Creative Strategist, Brand Designer, and Lover of Snacks who founded Sublation Studio. “SBLTN” is a design and discussion studio that offers creative services focused on intersectionality, accessibility, and diversity through inclusive practices, education, and advocacy. The term “sublation” refers to a philosophical concept that suggests when seemingly contradictory things or ideas intersect, they have the potential to produce something more powerful than either could alone. Sublation is integration without elimination; combination without loss. Laneen embraces their own intersectional identity and integrates those perspectives into both their work and connecting communities. Through SBLTN, Laneen aims to show clients how their design, and practices, can be inclusive and accessible without sacrificing aesthetics or brand messaging and voice. In addition to Laneen’s love for all things art and design, Laneen is an intersectional multi-potentialite, philosophy nerd, is Hard of Hearing, and a huge music fan. Laneen is an advocate for equity, justice, and healing, especially for marginalized and underrepresented communities. Laneen is fueled by matcha, tea, snacks, side-eyes, and gratitude. Laneen’s love languages are playlists and GIFs.
