I am a Johannesburg-based freelancer offering graphic and website design services. I specialise in creating beautiful, affordable and functional websites for my clients through various industries, services and products (I even have a couple of international brands on my books). With a background in creative direction, I have the knowledge and skills to assist with anything from web and digital design to copywriting and brand development. I know the proof is in the pudding, so I will let my work speak for itself. Spend some time going through my site and if there is anything you believe I could assist you with, I would love to hear from you!
Whether you are looking for a website, a product catalogue or to have your logo developed (or revitalised), I’m your gal.
Starting a new business? Does your old website need to be brought into this century? Designing functional, user friendly (and super cool) websites that stay true to your brand and achieve your creative web design vision is my thing.
From emailers and infographics, to social media cover pages and images, I embrace all that is digital. Keeping your brand fresh on the digital front is important to ensure your various audiences know who you are and are interested in engaging with you.
Have you got the ideas for your new (or old) venture in your head, but need someone to bring it to life? Brand development is not just straightforward logo development. It’s creating the personality of your brand, and giving it the oomph to make it memorable.
Making sure your brand is instantly recognisable in everything you put out there, from business cards to your email signature and company profile, can mean the difference between “oh yes, I definitely know them” and “umm, who?”.
Let’s face it, not everyone is gifted when it comes to stringing words together and making sure everything makes sense. Different audiences demand different writing styles, tones, content and structures to ensure your message hits home.
Just a few words from my current and past clients…
I have only recently started working with Natalie and she has the business savvy to quickly grasp concepts and turn out exceptional visuals – and all within the committed deadlines!
I can’t say enough about the quality and the attention to detail of her work, the only thing I regret is not finding her a long time ago as she makes my job a lot easier
Alesia le Roux (Owner), Lebuko Events
Creating a website we would absolutely love and adore, that represents us as professionals and our brand was a seamless process with Natalie from the Creative Lab. Natalie’s turn around time was incredible and she did not falter from the timelines given to us at the beginning of the project. The end result we achieved with Natalie is just perfect and we couldn’t be happier!
Gina & Alexia (Directors), Society PR & Communications
Natalie understands the fine line between creativity and return on investment. She has a unique ability of understanding my ideas, converting those same ideas into creativity and content in a unique manner and placing it into the consumer market place that allows us stand out from the competition.
This unique ability to connect with what a customer is looking for, provides a high return on investment on the marketing spend. She is an asset to our brand and I would highly recommend her offering to anyone in the small/medium enterprise space.
Warren Graver (Owner), MoistureShield SA
When we launched our business TimeBradits earlier this year, we sought a company whose web design experts could understand our business goals, what we stand for, and how best to portray this to the world in an enticing, professional and engaging way.
Simplicity and user-friendliness were also part of our brief to Natalie Cary of The Creative Lab. We were not disappointed and our satisfaction with our site is reinforced daily by the number of unsolicited compliments we receive. Updates and changes we request are immediately attended to.
The Creative Lab provided us with a high quality service with professional advice and seamless execution. From concept to implementation, the consistent support and efficiency was unbelievable! Besides getting a website developed and integrated, they went out of their way to ensure all my needs were met timeously. Their dedication is like none other. A rare find in this industry and definitely a keeper!

We hired Natalie to upgrade our website for Gauteng Kerbing. We were extremely impressed with her ability to even read our minds with what we wanted.
Within no time she had created a completely new look that was stylish and modern. She is extremely professional and we would like to thank her an outstanding job done. It was great working with someone so open-minded and responsive.
Thank you Natalie ! We are beyond happy with the end result.
