My Philosophy

I don’t work for you – I work for your customers. With you.

It is with your customer in mind I design products and user experiences. I delve in deeper motivation: their emotions, and develop designs which appeal to that inner core.

My Clients

I work with innovative companies in fintech space that focus on making change with their products and services and challenging the status quo of financial industry.

Creating and adding value through visual communication is what inspires me every day.

I come from a somewhat different background: management consulting in finance. For years I have worked closely with world’s largest financial institutions helping them identify pain points and areas for improvement to drive growth. However my passion was innovation, social change and creation of tangible value.

Driven by that passion, I’ve tried my hand in setting up a startup, but there was something missing for me. All the while, I was in London – vibrant, creative hub of the world. Surrounded by inspiring startups and working on my own idea, I discovered design and power of the brand. This led me to study Graphic Design and graduating from Shillington College. And the rest – was history.

After working with brands in various sectors, I decided to focus on creating change in the industry that needs it most. In my work, I apply my management consulting and experience in finance together with the design skills to shape the product that your customers love to use and brand they can easily relate to.

Unless you’re in the business of losing customers, fintech doesn’t have to be boring, in fact it shouldn’t be.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ background_image=”496″ column_shadow=”none” width=”1/2″ tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”in_container” full_screen_row_position=”middle” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” id=”contact” overlay_strength=”0.3″][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” width=”1/2″ tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid”][divider line_type=”No Line” custom_height=”40″][testimonial_slider style=”minimal” star_rating_color=”accent-color” autorotate=”7000″ disable_height_animation=”true”][testimonial image=”515″ star_rating=”none” title=”Testimonial” id=”1493431885-1-96″ tab_id=”1493431896515-0″ name=”Steve Stine” subtitle=”Thorough understanding and astonishing result” quote=”I had the honor and pleasure of working with Laura.
