Lead by Dave Nighbor, 9 Lives Design is an award-winning digital agency specializing in custom web design, branding, and digital media. We believe that good design is reflected when things are simple, beautiful, and a joy to use. We keep our project teams small to tackle problems through collaboration and a client-focused approach.
Art and design has been a lifelong passion for Dave Nighbor and he assembles teams who share common values. Our style echoes the voice of our clients which is why there is no single look that defines our work. We listen, design, and execute every project with the drive to exceed our client’s expectations.
Built on lightweight Content Management Systems (CMS), our websites are custom designed end-to-end. Every web project starts with a blank page and templates are designed specifically for each client.
Headless CMS Websites
Portfolios & Blogs
Custom projects can’t be complete without custom imagery. Photography is shot under the 9 Lives umbrella to ensure all the visuals carefully align with brand messaging.
9 Lives Design has been designing corporate identities and brands since we established in 2008. Every brand project is completed with a style guide website for the client to showcase their new identity and access all their logo files on-the-go.
Design is rarely static—especially on a digital platform. When Dave Nighbor fell in love with animation and interactive design years ago, he discovered his passion for videography. 9 Lives Design welcomes this added dimension of complexity to help bring a client's vision to life.
Get discovered. In order to catch your customer's attention, you need to advertise to them in the digital spaces they already operate in. We design digital marketing campaigns with the goal of bridging the gap between you and your target audience.
3D Design was added to our list of services in 2015 when we began building and animating 3D logos. As a passion project, Dave creates 3D art and minted his first NFT in 2021. He continues to express his creativity in 3D spaces by minting new NFT collections every year.
We call Calgary, Alberta home and North Bay, Ontario our hometown. 9 Lives Design works with clients across Canada, US, and Australia.
