Founder & Creative Director

LJB Studio was founded by Laura Jane Boast, a designer with a passion for print and materials.

Laura especially loves to help brands achieve consistency across all communications and build brand awareness to reach a wider audience.

She’s enthusiastic about getting to know her clients well, in order to offer both a personal and professional service. She takes time to fully understand their needs, to effectively and efficiently convey the spirit of their brand – so get the kettle on!

But her creativity doesn’t just stop there; her curious nature, passion for materials and appetite for learning extends way beyond her work, as she enjoys attending design talks, reading and listening to podcasts.

What’s more, Laura has taken part in many local charity initiatives, including the recent Women In Print event, raising money for local women’s charities.
