Create Something Remarkable
Remarkable Websites for remarkable people
Stand out from the crowd and lead with your heart, so you can build a business that fulfils and supports you on your journey to making the world a better place.
Hi! I’m Laura.
I’m a soulful website designer living and working in Meanjin/Brisbane and I’m here to help you stand out as the remarkable person and business you are.
I believe you can be strategic about your digital presence and how you show up, without sacrificing your personality and what makes you, “you”. I believe you don’t have to look or act like everyone else in order to build a life and a business you love. I believe that being your original and remarkable self will always be the best long-term growth strategy for you, over copying the same shit that everyone else does. I believe the internet is for everyone, and more needs to be done by marketers and designers to ensure our websites and social media don’t exclude anyone. And most importantly I believe that business can be a force for good and that leading with your values is the best way to attract the like-minded community that will advocate for you in any room.
You’re here because you want to make a sustainable income while using your business and your platform as a force for good. You want to create amazing things and need a place on the internet to show them off. You want people to think differently about your industry, and make real changes to their lives for the better. You’ve outgrown your digital presence, and are ready to step into something new and fresh – something that feels like you, tells your story and helps you stand out from the crowd.
And I want that for you. I want you to have a brand, a business and a website you can feel proud of. I want you to stop comparing yourself to everyone else and stand up and out as the remarkable person and business you are. I want you to feel free from comparisonitis and shiny object syndrome that leaves you feeling paralysed over what to do next. I want you to feel supported in your unique vision for the world.
My job is to really get to know you, your business and your big goals for the future, and distil that into something special that’s just for you. It’s to help you find your spark, and let your personality, vision, values and goals steal the show. Through strategic website design and tailored website audits, I’m here to help you build trust with your ideal clients and customers, and build you a remarkable slice of online that converts for you while you sleep.
If you’re feeling like you’re struggling to differentiate yourself in a crowded online space, you’re not alone.
Now, more than ever, there is a wash of advice everywhere on how and where you should show up, which has everyone scrambling to emulate each other.
Just like you, my clients have struggled to stand out from the crowd, and achieve the visibility and sales online they need in order to grow their business and make a difference in the world.
They thought they needed to keep up with the trends, but what they really needed was a functional, goal-oriented and personality-driven custom digital presence that got to the heart of their purpose and their why.
A custom digital presence is important because it empowers you to stop following and start leading.
It helps you to sell with confidence, and show up as you truly are, for a sustainable, soulful business that is less of them and more of you.
When my clients get their new digital presence, they see results immediately. They have a corner of the internet that feels true to them while attracting and converting their ideal clients and customers with ease. They see an increase in enquiries and a steady flow of like-minded community members that will advocate for them in any room. They feel confident about sending people to their website, and more empowered to step into their role as an industry leader and a world change-maker.
During my 8+ year career in digital marketing working with soulful not-for-profit and innovative companies that are here to make a difference, I found a love of website design and everything that goes into it. Website design is that rare unicorn that lets me combine my creativity with my love of problem-solving, technology and good old-fashioned strategy.
Through my marketing background, I am well-placed to make strategic design choices for your website that not only look good but actually allow your website to function like marketing automation. Imagine it; your little slice of online that tells your dream customers and clients exactly who you are while guiding them on a journey that empowers them to make an informed decision about working with you.
I completed Kelly Diels’ Feminist Copywriting Certification in 2020, in order to better understand how I can support my clients to create ethical and accessible spaces online that won’t cause harm to their communities. In 2021, I’ve also worked with ethical marketing coach Rachel Kurzyp to ensure I’m doing everything I can to help my clients step into their power and gain the visibility they deserve.
For 5 years now, I’ve been creating beautiful, functional websites that showcase how remarkable my clients and their businesses truly are. I focus on creating personality-driven websites that are beautiful and functional, while following the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) wherever possible. I believe the internet should be for everyone and more work needs to be done in the design community to ensure our work doesn’t exclude anyone!

Places where you might find me
On a plane to somewhere exciting (pre and post-pandemic of course), with a long list of delicious vegetarian restaurants to try.
At a second-hand store, rummaging for the next sustainable bargain.
Glued to my laptop, practising my illustrations or learning something new.
At the gym, picking heavy things up off the floor and putting them back down again.
In front of the PS4, unwinding from the day with a bit of virtual face-punching (and quietly cursing the PS5 shortage).
In a sunlit pub garden, enjoying a cold glass of wine with a side of well-salted hot chips.
