A little bit of background information.

Natalie specializes in custom Web Design, Front End Development and overall Graphics and Identity Design. Her background in marketing, design, psychology and the arts allows her to tailor professional and unique web pieces. She pushes for cutting-edge development tools using new languages and techniques. The majority of her work tends to be user-experience focused. All of her most recent work is 100% responsive; she was an early adopter of the "fluid" approach to website structures.

Blurring the lines of designer-vs-developer.

Natalie's expertise in both web design and development has allowed her to shape an exceptional web presence for many clients. Understanding the technical innovations of CSS3, PHP and jQuery/JavaScript while viewing with the sharp eye of a seasoned designer gives her an advantage over most who are only exposed to one side or the other. She designs with code in mind, and writes script with user experience as key. Recent work on a custom in-house CMS/CRM allowed her to begin her "interface mockups" with real-world markup supplemented with jQuery. Being able to immediately demonstrate how a user interacts and is guided through any web component has become an integral part of her process.

Brand integrity is behind it all.

Strong brand identities must not only span the traditional mediums we've come to accept, but also expand above and beyond the desktop to personal mobile and tablet devices. A brand's persona and appearance in the public eye is key to forming a solid and successful business. When working with her on Creative Consultation and Brand Identity, the end result is a brand presence that gives clients a personal and competitive edge. In addition to web design and development, Natalie is well experienced with crafting beautiful marketing materials, including brochures, postcards, print ads, and packaging. Art, design and fashion have always been intertwined for her—she pools various influences together to create sleek, unique designs. After earning a Bachelor of Design in Ryerson's Fashion Communication program in 2010, she immersed herself back into her true passion: web design and development. Natalie began teaching herself web programming at the age of 14.
