The core team

You want something unique, something bespoke. You want a team that’s dedicated to honest and human communications, to saying what they mean and meaning what they say.

We are that team. We are your team. Come and say hi.

Laura Hurst

branding, and creative

Having cut her teeth in the print industry (and has the paper cuts to prove it), Laura now has over twelve years experience as a graphic designer, with a focus on branding and publication design.

Laura combines professionalism with fun and creativity, and loves drawing inspiration from the world around her. Her favourite part of the design process is getting the know the client, deeply understanding their needs and motivations. This, she believes, is the basis of great design.

Outside of work Laura can be found pursuing quite a few different hobbies, including knitting, painting and most recently, rollerskating.
