Company description
9 Lives Design is a full-service design studio located in downtown North Bay, Ontario. We craft communication solutions for businesses of any size and are suckers for good typography, slick user interfaces, and making our clients happy. We design and develop brand identities, websites, wayfinding systems, user-interfaces, and print material.

Although we are in Northern Ontario, our clients are located across Canada and hail from a range of industries: sport, entertainment, corporate, apparel, and not-for-profit.

Our mission is to improve the lives of others through design and have fun along the way.
Why am I a designer?
I found design after a journey through art and sport and consider myself lucky to have found my true calling. My belief is that good design is reflected when things are simple, beautiful, and a joy to use. Being able to use art and technology to create functional products (print, websites, illustrations) that people can appreciate brings me joy. Client successes are my triumphs and I believe in working closely with them to reach their goals.
Why should you hire me?
Our experience with web development and UX design gives us an edge and deeper understanding of the needs for complex projects. The founder, Dave Nighbor, graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Design from York/Sheridan Program in Design, where he gained formal training in fine arts and media from the best in the industry.
