One thing that bugs me is the way context is lost. You start discovering new music or new culture in very particular ways. Algorithms become your guide. If an algorithm calculates that you may like a piece of music, it will recommend it to you. That makes the algorithm the master of context for humanity. It tends to remove culture from its context, and context is everything. The structure of the Net itself has become the context instead of real people or the real world. That’s a really big deal.
Let the people talk…
Natasha redesigned two websites I am responsible for – transformancemusic.org and colinsamurai.com. She took them from being homemade-looking functional websites into something extremely professional and polished very quickly. She is responsive, helpful, patient and fairly priced, and has a strong artistic vision that enhances what we are trying to do. A real pleasure to work with.
I worked with Natasha on a University of Edinburgh Student Partnership Project. Natasha designed a postcard illustrating ’10 tips to stay well,’ based on content provided by students. We went through a couple of rounds of changes, and Natasha was very responsive to feedback, always explaining her decisions to us and making great suggestions from a design point of view. She delivered the project on time and within budget, and it was a pleasure to work with her. The project has been featured on our website and will be given additional funding to make the postcard available to students across the University.

Natasha worked with me at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society in 2016 and 2017 as the Artworker (Fixed term contract). She was a great asset in our Marketing team, designing and producing a number of projects. She has a good eye for design and very accurate in her work. She was great at multi-tasking and meeting deadlines. I would happily have her back on the team anytime.
