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 businesses 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 a more bespoke personal service. She takes time to fully understand their needs and what they want to achieve, 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 visiting design events, attending design talks, reading and listening to inspiring 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.
