Over the last few months I've been working with branding guru, stationery queen and loveliest lady Laura of LJB Studio to make some changes to my practice. The feeling of falling back in love with pewtersmithing, being a small business owner and independent maker makes me want to do star jumps around the studio.
The journey of rebranding which I went on with Laura has recently reinvigorated me and my love for pewter. It's allowed me to remember the beauty of making with my hands and celebrating how/why I've carved out a business from it. I'm excited and I want to shout it from the rooftops...but it's raining so I'll settle for heading into the studio for some spoon making!

LJB Studio provided us with an excellent and evocative piece of work for our recent event. It was truly something special. She oversaw the process from conception to delivery which took a huge weight off for us.
Laura went beyond the call of duty with a tricky brief and was gracious and accommodating in the face of set backs. The final project gained a lot of social media traction which helped us out!

Laura is an excellent designer and consultant. She has helped us considerably with our visual identity and is always on hand to offer advice whenever we need it. Highly recommended.

I have known Laura for a number of years. She is creative and insightful as well as being very efficient. High quality design work is produced quickly and thoughtfully with excellent attention to detail. I would not hesitate in recommending her for any branding, print or illustration commission.

Heritage Open Days has been working with Laura Boast for several years. Working with Laura has always been a pleasure as she is quick to grasp a brief and translate them into attractive visuals, often delivering ahead of deadlines. The pop-up banners and accompanying leaflet she created for our launch night proved engaging tools to tell some poignant Heritage Open Days stories and convey the spirit of Heritage Open Days aesthetically. Thank you, Laura!

I can’t say enough about Laura’s excellent work, her efficiency and professionalism in all her design work. Her attention to detail and design initiatives is what sets Laura apart from others. Laura has helped me not only grow my brand but has played a lead role in the expansion of the Tim Hall School of Golf. I would strongly recommend Laura and her work.

William Eastwood Manager – Fletcher Moss Park and Botanical Gardens
Laura had always enjoyed her visits to Fletcher Moss Park and Gardens, in Didsbury, Manchester. Laura’s professional experience, combined with her talent as an artist, has resulted in a high quality product, which will delight and inform all visitors. It was a pleasure to work with Laura who showed great patience and understanding of what we were trying to achieve.
Heather Stemp Manager – Fletcher Moss Park and Botanical Gardens
Laura is one of the most talented and passionate individuals I have ever had the privilege to work with. Her vision is incredible and a real breath of fresh air. The quality of her work is 10/10 but what separates her to other designers is her communication and after sales service. She is always only a phone call away and nothing is ever too much trouble. I’m sure our fantastic professional relationship will continue for many more years.
