Janelle Lamothe

Visual / UX Designer, Provisional RGD

I’m driven by a fascination with how design can elicit emotion, change perspectives, and make people’s lives better Raising Hands on Apple iOS 11.2

Most importantly, I’m passionate about asking why.

I use an interdisciplinary approach to designing experiences that people will love, whether it’s a brand identity or a digital product. I let purpose and curiosity guide me through a process to uncover and create meaningful and appropriate solutions. With inhouse, agency, and freelance experience, I’ve collaborated with both start-ups and established companies to develop meaningful connections between brands and people.

I was born and raised in Nova Scotia, and I hold a Bachelor of Design from NSCAD University. I began my education in fine arts, had a brief affair with interior design, and landed with a focus on human-centric graphic and web design. Most recently, I invested in formal UX training, completing a course at HackerYou. This collection of experiences has instilled a broader range of perspective and methodology to everything I do.

In my spare time, I enjoy taking hip hop dance classes, watching underrated Studio Ghibli films, and traveling to new countries.

Design is the passionate pursuit of creative discovery.

Let's work together

Web / UI & UX

I design and build websites and digital products using user experience processes and methodologies to make sure that the goals of the product align with user needs and brand identity. I can both collaborate with developers as well as build websites myself using WordPress as a platform, fully customizing the design to be unique and responsive.

Brand Identity

Designing brand identities is my passion. I love working with companies and entrepreneurs to develop and curate lasting brands; connecting their mission and purpose to their identity and to their audience. I do complete identity packages, logos, guidelines, business cards and all other collateral.

Package Design

I can take your product from initial research and development to prepress-ready. I know my way around a dieline and I design with an eagle-eye for detail, creating packaging that stands above the competition. My experiences have led me to specialize in consumer packaged goods, and I am always up for new types of projects!

Marketing Collateral

I work with businesses to connect the dots between a brand's communication goals and their marketing materials in print and digital. This includes posters, brochures, ads, B2B materials, social media content, POS displays, clothing and promo gear, tradeshow booths, pitch decks and more.
