About me
Hi 👋 I'm Laura — a versatile and fearless designer based in London. With 9 years of industry experience, both in-house and agency side, I enjoy diving headfirst into any design challenge that comes my way. I've had the opportunity to work on a wide range of projects, including global OOH campaigns, event branding, bespoke book designs, whole website redesigns and builds, and UI for industrial machinery. If you have a project that you think I'd be a good fit for, or if you simply want to say hello, I would love to hear from you!

  • Host Days – Event Branding – Airbnb
    Host Days – Event Branding – AirbnbHost Days was a series of events that took place in 12 locations across the world to gather local Host communities. The events included talks presented by experts, Host-led workshops and award ceremonies. An adaptable identity was designed for the events giving each location its own unique colour palette.

  • King's Review, Website Redesign
    King's Review, Website RedesignKing's Review, run by students at King's College, Cambridge, is an annual print magazine that explores themes of politics and culture. They also have an online presence that complements the print edition. I collaborated with the editor-in-chief to refresh the King's Review website.

  • Dominoes – Airbnb
    Dominoes – AirbnbA bespoke set of Dominoes were sent out as a gift to surprise and delight Airbnb Hosts who were welcoming guests into their home over the festive season. I provided input into concept development as well as designing the domino pieces and packaging. Over 5,000 Domino sets were received by Hosts in the UK, France and Germany. I chose the game Dominoes as the gift because it is played globally without any language limitations; it is also the perfect size to fit through a letter box!
