Lumify Creative is a web design studio based in Winchester founded by Rachel Laing. Services can range from complete website development to ongoing front-end developer contracts. Often brought in to larger organisations as a contractor to bridge the gap between in-house tech and design teams.
I began designing for the web in 1999, working as a junior web designer in a large organisation. I quickly moved up the ranks and by 2001 I was the Global Head of Web Development working out of the UK and USA offices. The organisation's website was an enterprise level, e-commerce site. It involved working with teams from across the globe from Sydney to São Paulo and managing sites in various spoken languages including Mandarin and Arabic. Six years later, I left this role and established an independent design and promotions company in 2007 and more recently Lumify Creative in 2017. I have worked on numerous web projects either directly with clients or as a contractor. Work has included projects for high-profile clients such as The Guardian, The NHS, Wall Street Journal, Kew, and Wellcome as well as many smaller organisations.
