With fluid creativity and thoughtful collaboration, I endeavor to nurture compelling, cohesive brands for my clients. I delve deeply into characteristics, idiosyncrasies and lineage to extract essence and truth, then meticulously and protectively guide the evolution of their public voice, as a living organism. My diligent approach results in visual articulations that reverberate throughout the user experience, delivering clear, synchronized messages that bring brands the potential of undeniable soulfulness.

Positive, open, loyal and adventurous, I derive great joy from learning, facilitating creative momentum, connection and mutual understanding. I enthusiastically partner with agencies, colleagues and clients across all departments and leadership levels to establish living languages and concrete solutions that bring an honesty and vitality to an otherwise flat component of their business. Ensuring this vision is holistically embraced across the entire company is paramount for integration.
The outward goal is to uncover the nuances that allow their business to be truer to itself, and whose strategy will echo this vision with the most effective message, year-round. 
Looking forward to connecting,
Natalie Phillips

I had the pleasure of working with Natalie at the ultra-luxury Elysian Hotel, in Chicago. With the project being a startup there was a lot of work which had to be done to support and define the new brand with the right marketing materials. Cost efficiency and attention to detail where essential to ensure we would stay within budget but guarantee the integrity and consistency of the branded materials and forms. Natalie was able to add incredible value by guiding the procurement team in conversations with the printer, ensuring that we were asking meaningful questions and finding the right balance between cost and design.”
