I am a “T-shaped Designer”, currently finishing my MultimediaArts study in Austria at the University of Applied Sciences of Salzburg.
“T-shaped” means that I have a broad understanding in various design-disciplines like film, motion graphics, illustration and photography, but at the same time have a deep knowledge in a specific design-field: Graphic Design. This skill gives me the ability to understand designers of other disciplines and eases the communication between them.

Laura Kalbag is a designer easily excited by web design and development. Among her list of ever-changing pet subjects are responsive design, accessibility, web fonts and design theory, but she’s really fascinated by anything in the areas of web, mobile and design.
