About Hart Graphics

Laura Hart, freelance designer and illustrator


BA (Hons) Design: Archaeological Illustration


I began working as an illustrator for Oxford Archaeology, producing artefact drawings, three-dimensional reconstructions and design for public outreach projects. I went on to work for Usborne Publishing as a marketing designer, producing a range of artwork for children, parents and teachers, including leaflets, brochures, posters, website images, magazines, catalogues and mailings. I now enjoy working as a freelance designer and illustrator for various clients such as the University of Oxford and Wherever the Need.


I charge £30 per hour. Alternatively, I'm happy to negotiate a set fee to help you stay within your budget.

“Laura Hart is quickly becoming our designer of choice. In addition to being an absolute pleasure to work with, she’s capable of creative miracles on tight timelines. She’s been instrumental in helping us translate complex scientific messages into clear and approachable visual concepts. Her keen eye for detail and creative talent are helping us reach a much broader range of audiences.”

Rachel Giacomantonio, Communications Manager, MalariaGEN

“Laura’s design of what was quite a challenging brief for a project logo, flyer and performance programme brought together several concepts into an innovative and eye-catching design. I’m very happy with the work she produced and highly recommend her.”

Emily Peasgood, Musician

“I’ve worked with Laura for over 6 years and she is still one of my favourite designers to work with. No task is too big or small, no challenge too great, and her attention to detail is brilliant. Laura listens well to a brief and responds directly, meaning that the creative process is smooth and getting to the final stages is swift. She’s extremely personable, with the client’s best interests a priority. I’ve worked with Laura on a vast range of marketing projects, print and digital - she can turn her design skills to anything you need. I thoroughly recommend using Hart Graphics and will be working with Laura for the next 6 years, and beyond.”

Bryony Bishop, Marketing Manager, Turner Contemporary

“Laura Hart has done excellent work for us, coming up with creative solutions for all our publications. She is prompt and reliable, and offers excellent value for money. I can’t recommend Hart Graphics highly enough.”

Amy Crosweller, Access and Communications Officer, Somerville College

“Laura Hart is a very creative and effective designer and a pleasure to work with. In one project that we briefed, in a poster campaign for a fundraising event, Laura came back very quickly with a scheme that was just what we wanted and interpreted our branding with a fresh approach. The project went to completion very smoothly and she has really worked hard for us. We highly recommend Hart Graphics.”
