Alchemical Projects is a Trenton, NJ-based, multi-faceted media and content shop geared towards the arts and other creative realms.

When not creating art for his own portfolio, Lauren Otis provides solutions for the needs of artists, businesses and non-profits.

Services can be as simple as written press releases coupled with a basic media campaign. Arts administration and program management solutions are also offered.

In concert with its creative partners, Alchemical Projects has the capacity to create fully realized public presences for individuals and organizations — including logos, images, brochures, web presence and content — on a project or company-wide basis.

Clients: Artworks Trenton; Content Trenton; InForest Communications; Trenton Downtown Association; Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market; Wilkinson Media.
