About Me

My name's Laura Hogarth and I'm a thirty-something web designer based in Birmingham in the West Midlands. I design and build websites, and I love my job!

I started Web Design as a hobby in my early 20s and soon realised that the combination of creativity and logic made it the perfect career for me. Since then I have produced work for companies including Apple, Sony and Disney, as well as working on projects with individuals and smaller companies.

What I do

I design and develop high-quality websites that are tailored to each individual client's requirements and budget. I'll take the time to get to know your business, understand your users, and deliver a solution that works best for you.

My skills include:

  • Hand-coding HTML5
  • Expert-level CSS, including OOCSS and SASS
  • jQuery
  • Responsive web design (sites which adapt to tablets and smartphones)
  • Content Management System (CMS) integration
  • User Interface design
  • Photoshop and Illustrator
  • E-commerce

I am also able to advise and assist with other aspects of your online presence, including Social Media, SEO, Analytics and Content Strategy.

A bit more about me...

Having lived in the West Midlands for most of my life, I'm now based in South Birmingham where I live with my husband and our cats.

I'm a friendly, open person, who'll always go the extra mile to deliver the best work I possibly can. When I'm not creating little slices of the web I enjoy your typical geek pursuits such as rock music, pub quizzes, video games, sci-fi, comic books, and looking at pictures of cute animals on the internet.
