Beautiful style
with a great backend.

9 Lives Design is an award-winning agency specializing in web design and branding. The best part is, we’re doing it all from a small studio in Northern Ontario.

Web Design

  • When potential customers visit your website, we want them to feel good. We design every movement and interaction with the goal of connecting your audience to your message.

  • We believe in designing mobile first. Chances are your customers are viewing your website from their phone and they deserve a great experience. Before writing any code, we design layouts for mobile, tablet, and desktop.

  • Finally, a content management system (CMS) that is a joy to use, easy to update, and lightweight. Our customized CMS is tailored for each client so you can update your website without a pain of breaking the site or losing formatting.


  • We are proud to say that our logos can be seen all over the world. We start every project with a carefully engineered marketing strategy and pour everything we have in designing an identity that helps your business thrive.

  • Designing a logo is only the start of our work—we want to make your company memorable. Each branding project comes with a full suite of assets so you can hit the ground running with a strong, cohesive presence.

  • Show off your new logo to friends or send branded assets to printers and colleagues. We develop a custom brand guideline website so you can easily access and store your design files.

Believe it or not, there are only two of us. We believe in loving what we do and doing what we love so we keep our team small.
