Get to know a little bit about me

Are you sitting comfortably? Then we shall begin.

I'm Laura Elizabeth, the freelance graphic designer behind Laurium Design, where I create beautiful, purposeful identities and websites for people like you (yes, you!)

I’ve been working happily as a designer for over 5 years. I don’t have a particularly cool story, I didn’t drop out of university or get fired from a job (though sometimes I wish I did—my bio’s would be so much more punchy!)

After graduating from Falmouth University in 2011 I went to work in a wonderful design agency for a year. While there, I realised that my favourite part of the job was getting to know the people behind the business and working directly with them to get them where they wanted to be.

So I decided to start up on my own and now I’m lucky enough to work with some of the most amazing, inspiring people one-on-one, often coming out good friends by the end!

My Values

Transparent... like a ghost

No secrets. No cover-ups. Just good, clean, honest design.

Speak human, not robot

Jargon is stupid and often unnecessary. We’re all humans here (aren’t we?!)

Level up and evolve

There’s always more to learn and room to grow. Never stop learning.

Compassion is key

Always put myself in other people’s shoes so I can understand and help them better

Quality, not quantity

Make a smaller number of projects amazing rather than lots of mediocre ones

Stay curious

Question everything. Dig deep. Get right to the heart of the problem.

Giving back

I believe everybody has something to offer those less fortunate. Whether it’s money, time or a skill we can all give something back.

That’s why I started Pro-Bono Friday. Every other Friday morning I donate approximately 4 hours of my time to help out with design work for good causes.

This can either take the form of small jobs like posters or web banners or it can span across a few weeks for something larger like a brochure or a landing page.

So if you’re a not-for-profit and would like a helping hand with some free design work send me an email with some information about your cause, what you need doing and I’ll add you to my waiting list!
