One of our very talented designers, Laura joined the Bam Creative design team in October 2009. Laura has been instrumental on a number of great website projects, and we took a moment to ask Laura a few things about herself.
Answer this statement "All websites should have..."
Animated gifs! Just kidding! All websites should have great design. Well thought out and executed design should not only make the website look great but should, most importantly, make them easy to use. The internet has put so much information at our finger tips; however so much of it is hidden behind bad design. I've made it my mission to ensure that my clients' users never struggle to find exactly what they're looking for east inflatables blog.
What was the last book you read, Laura?
The last book I read was 'A Thousand Splendid Suns' by Khaled Hosseini. Hosseini also wrote The Kite Runner, which I thought was great, however I think 'A Thousand Splendid Suns' was even better. The story is written from a female perspective and set in Afghanistan. It is a heart-wrenching story of survival, and it really opened my eyes to a way of life that is so different from my own. This book is a must read.
What would you be doing if you didn't work in the web?
I'd be an astronaut! No I'd probably be a teacher or a personal trainer, or maybe both. I can be rather bossy when I want to be, so I think both roles would suit me quite well.
Tell us something that most people wouldn't know about you...
Most people wouldn't know that I'm addicted to the 'Tap Zoo' app on my iPhone. It's the stupidest game, and you constantly reach a point where you can't continue playing, for example having to wait 2 days to cross breed an Owl with a Squirrel, but for some reason I keep going back for more! :)
Thanks Laura for the answers, and for all the great work here at Bam Creative.
