Hi, I'm Natalie

Passionate about design, my mission is to unite people and elevate the quality of their lives through thoughtful and visually appealing solutions.

With a diverse background ranging from art & design, to animal care, to customer service, I believe I bring a unique perspective to the industry. As a lifelong artist, my innate design mindset allows me to solve problems creatively while crafting a research based and user-focused experience.

I am continuously committed to deepening my knowledge of design through various courses, bootcamps, reading and workshops. I currently work to apply my skills as a freelance Web and Graphic Designer. I am open to working for a company, where I can contribute my talents and passion to user-friendly design. If you are in need of a designer and would like to hire me, please feel free to send me a message.
