Nicole’s unique edge and flair bring a freshness to all projects she works on. Her skill set is broad and concise, ranging from print through to web design. She shows incredible intuition and understanding of concepts and I found her creative eye invaluable. Highly recommended and looking forward to working on future projects with Studio Alchemy.Elizabeth Payne
Nicole Barratt truly lives up to her brand Alchemy. Her ability to truly see what her client stands for is pure magic! Nicole has a creative edge that you don’t often see in the noisy market place of web creation. She gets to the heart of what matters to her clients and translates that into a beautiful big calling card that speaks with authenticity, integrity and honesty. I have worked with many web designers from India to the USA and never quite got what I wanted. Having Nicole truly committed to make my brand a true reflection of who I truly am has been an incredible gift. Nicole is pure magic in every aspect of brand delivery.Sarah-Jane Farrell
Hiring Nicole is the best thing I did when starting my business. I knew what I wanted, I learned all about the DIY but I wasn’t building my business by trying to build my website by myself and knowing that someone else was out there who would be able to get me, see me and build my brand. Although I had a terrible experience with the first developer I hired (what a waste of money!) I must have been totally ready for that person to appear in my life because she appeared as Nicole! From the first designs Nicole sent to me I was in WOW! It was just THAT EXACT THING I wanted it to be! I am so happy with the way Nicole just got me and with her quick ability to step in anything and make it great instantly that I am glad she is now a part of my team.Audrey Michele
I recently asked Nicole to design a logo for our upcoming Cat of the Year. Nicole has the gift and ability to hear and interpret an idea. She patiently added and subtracted elements and colours and gave advice on what colours were working and what colours should be removed. Thank you Nicole. You have designed a fabulous logo that has received many positive comments and will successfully brand our event.Jane Goble
I approached Nicole Barratt of Studio Alchemy to assist me in creating a few logos for my hobbies and was pleasantly surprised! She not only got my vision but exceeded my expectations regarding the design and layout.
Her work ethic and efficiency was superb and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone from a simple logo design to a corporate entity.Shaun Armand
