Laura Somerville

Web designer & developer

I live in the beautiful city of Bath in the South West of England. My days are spent with web development from back end programming (PHP) to front end engineering (HTML, CSS, and Javascript) and graphic design working via my independent studio Sublime by Design. Working as a freelancer, I enjoy the creative freedom this gives me, as well as being able to work with new media agencies on a self-employed basis.

Currently my focus is on responsive, shopping, content managed (user editable) and database driven web site design. Previous work has included retail, travel, engineering, importing and manufacturing industries nationwide, ranging from one-person run businesses through to businesses with turnovers in the millions.

I love to help small businesses and individuals improve their online presence. Working in a very collaborative and open way, you will always have a say in what’s going on and an honest opinion on what I think will benefit your business the most will be given.

When I’m not pushing pixels around all day, I enjoy drinking coffee, growing sub-tropical plants in my garden and nature photography.

Who I work with



I work with startups who are just finding their feet to launch them into the digital space. I’m a believer in building relationships and look for companies who I can work with long term.



If you already have an existing website you feel could be improved, I’d love to hear from you. I work with established companies of all sizes to provide them with creative digital solutions.
