“What a beautiful name,” Kimberly said. “Does it mean anything? I love multicultural names because they have such wonderful meanings, from wonderful rich cultures.” Kimberly was smiling the kindly smile of people who thought “culture” the unfamiliar colourful reserve of colourful people, a word that always had to be qualified with “rich”. She would not think Norway had a “rich culture”.

Let the people talk…
Natasha fulfilled all the tasks given to her in a most professional manner, showing an inquisitive nature and interest for our work. No job too small or too big to ask. Moreover, she always asks if she can help or sees what work needs to be done, tackling things on her own initiative. In particular her excellent design work was very much appreciated during her stay.
She has also been participating in a number of workshop and other education related tasks, for which she showed initiative and enthusiasm.
Natasha’s cheerful, calm and inquisitive personality will be missed in our organisation.
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.
