About me
Hi there. I'm Laura, a graduate Graphic Designer from Nottingham Trent University, D&AD New Blood Winner 2020 and D&AD “Ones To Watch” 2020. My work varies widely from clean cut graphic design to vibrant and wacky illustrations, which are bought together through well researched elaborate narratives. Above all I like to have fun with my designs and bring and element of play and experimentation to everything I do, I often sit (and overlap) between the two worlds of graphic design and illustration​. Check out my website: https://www.lauraspence.co.uk Or go to my Instagram @neveranemptyglass which shares my unfiltered design process. Feel free to contact me at laurajanespence@gmail.com I’m always up for collaborations and commissions on something fun and challenging.

The brand used space themed phrases and backgrounds to mirror that, like space, female pleasure remains unexplored by
  • Together We Thrive
    Together We ThriveAn info-graphic inspired illustrated campaign, depicting communities that have thrived through HSBC's sponsorship programmes. ​ The illustration lies on a grid system which was influenced through HSBC's role in networking, in a digital sense and in a human sense too. One of the core values that is key at HSBC is connecting people across the globe, which I've illustrated through an intricate labyrinth grid network, where HSBC is central too.
