Laura Swords, Owner, SwordsNet Designs

Laura Swords

I started my career designing and maintaining websites over 20 years ago. Shortly after receiving my Marketing degree from Loyola University, I was hired as a graphic designer for a small company. I soon found myself in the official role of webmaster, at which point I taught myself how to code. Although I've always considered myself the creative type, I soon discovered that I have a knack for the technical side as well. Holding various roles within corporate marketing and IT departments has allowed me to foster a unique skill set of creative design and technical know-how. It also taught me the importance of clear communication, especially when working on a big project with lots of decision makers.

SwordsNet Designs was created with the intention of using my experience and expertise to help other businesses make the most out of their online presence, without the big agency prices.

Thrilled with the results

"The branding for our company was mismatched and out of date. I needed someone to update our logo, help us create a unified social media presence, and apply the new branding to our marketing materials. I worked with Laura and she did a fantastic job – listened to what we thought we wanted but also introduced ideas that did not occur to us. Thrilled with the results and will be back for more!"
