About me
Who is Laura? Originally from the Isle of Wight, I love to be by the sea, but moved around the UK a fair bit during my childhood. I studied Graphic Design at College and then at University both in the south of the UK. A highlight of my education was being elected Vice, and then President of my College. Shortly after university I became the Marketing Designer for a Tourist board covering the South of England, with the focus on an annual event held at Alexandra Palace. After this I moved to London to work as the Marketing Designer in an insurance data start up. This sector wasn’t for me, so I began my journey at Rungway! I have always loved branding and communication, because I see the importance, and the effect, of a clear message and mission. I like to act as the glue between the teams, combining the industry knowledge and speak of Customer, Sales, Marketing with the consistent visuals of Design. I am skilled in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign, but for designs these days I primarily use Figma. This has the ability to easily share designs with teams. One of the key marketing design areas I love to manage is social media, which can be easily automated using HubSpot. What do I love? All things Design and Creative! Animal lover, especially cats! (We currently have four…) Very social person, I’m more extrovert than introvert, but sometimes have my quiet days, if I get this way please reach out, it’s just what I need! Puzzles, yoga, painting, travelling, swimming, I’m up for trying anything that has a social aspect. Even though I was born in the cold season, I love the heat! I’m a Summer girl.
