About the Speakers

Laura Giffard

Laura founded Perq Studio in 2017, having honed her brand, design and campaign management expertise in top agencies and qualified her aptitude for strategic thinking with an MBA in Entrepreneurship. Her strategic focus, creative passion and dedication to client satisfaction form the ethos behind the Perq Studio brand.

Laura’s Italian heritage not only influenced the choice of name for the studio but is reflected daily in the warmth of her people-centred approach. As a hands-on founder, she oversees all client relationships; agreeing a vision and strategy for mutual success before nurturing each phase of brand, design and campaign development.

When not fastidiously working on client briefs, Laura is active in promoting marketing as a force for economic and public benefit through her charitable membership role as Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Marketors.

Nikki Burton

Joining Perq Studio in 2018 Nikki brings a passion for stand-out creative, a BA in Communications Design and extensive sector experience across property, retail, beauty and B2B. She’s that rare breed of versatile designer who doesn’t believe in set styles and whose vision can flex beyond what’s expected in any given sector.

With a relentless ambition to surprise and delight her clients, Nikki has built a formidable reputation throughout her career as a strategic and collaborative creative. Specialising in integrated design, she understands how to distil the essence of a brand and deliver it cohesively and consistently both online & offline. A stickler for detail and client satisfaction, nothing leaves the studio without Nikki’s triple-checked seal of approval.
