Laura spent a decade working in B2C and B2B magazine publishing for titles including Elle, Monocle, Red, Broadcast and Drapers before deciding to focus on digital in a series of positions as a Creative Director over the past ten years.
From 2013 to 2018 she was the Creative Director at the leading financial services and technology consultancy Riskcare, followed by a year as a Flexible Creative Director at Red C.
Salt Studio was set up in 2019 when Laura spotted a gap in the market for competitively priced high-quality web design that intrinsically incorporates cutting-edge SEO. Since its launch, Salt Studio has expanded its services offering to include print collateral and growth marketing packages.
Laura was trained to hone her perfectionist tendencies early in her publishing career and the Salt Studio team continue to consistently deliver these high standards.
Laura brings an unusual mix to the Salt Studio team of having extremely high copywriting standards alongside strong and commercial creative direction.

It has been a pleasure working with Salt Studio to rethink our branding and online business. The new website has been received extremely well by both our clients and candidates and the statistics reflect this – users, page views and session lengths are all dramatically improved.
Laura brings an unusual mix of being commercially minded, creative and yet also a concise and strong copywriter to the table. She also invested a lot of time in making sure our SEO was spot on for relaunch, which is reflected in the great analytics results we are seeing.
Laura is a versatile creative director able to take on all aspects of branding and marketing. Laura updated our outward facing identity including a new website, business cards, graphics and print templates, introducing a consistent visual and written style.
She managed the editing and design of external content (white papers and commentary) and drove an agenda of regular high-value output, optimised for SEO. She also drove external partner relationships with vendors, social media and publishers to increase our external presence. She had a really positive, upbeat approach and it was a pleasure to work with her.
Laura came very well recommended and on meeting with her and seeing her work on a supplier's website I decided to immediately instruct her to build Signature Property’s new website.
She was exceptionally easy to work with, highly attentive and the client reviews we have received since have more than met our expectations.
I would have no hesitation in further recommending Laura
and her team.
Laura is an incredibly talented copywriter with a background in publishing. As a result, she has an excellent eye and is finely tuned to every aspect of what your brand has to say and how it says it.
Aside from that, she is an incredibly lovely person to work with and although the idea of building and maintaining a web site filled me with dread and gave me sleepless nights, the whole experience has been quite enjoyable and I am extremely pleased with the end result.
