For Dave Nighbor, a passion for art and design has been a lifelong pursuit. At 9 Lives Design, he brings together a team of individuals with similar values to craft unique solutions for each client. Our approach is centered around the client's vision, and we strive to bring that vision to life with every project we undertake. From concept to execution, we listen, design, and deliver with a commitment to exceeding expectations.
Our custom-designed websites are built from the ground up using lightweight Content Management Systems (CMS). No two projects are the same, and each one begins with a clean slate, resulting in templates specifically tailored to each client's unique needs.

Every custom project needs custom visuals to truly come to life. At 9 Lives Design, we take the reins on photography to ensure that every shot is in harmony with the brand's message, just like the various lives of a cat seamlessly align to create one cohesive story.
At 9 Lives Design, we've been breathing new life into brands since our inception in 2008. Every brand project is like a rebirth, and we ensure it has the tools it needs to thrive by delivering a style guide website that acts as a showcase for the new identity and allows for easy access to logo files on-the-go.
Design is rarely static, especially in the digital realm. Dave Nighbor's passion for animation and interactive design led him to discover a love for videography. At 9 Lives Design, we embrace this added layer of complexity as a way to bring clients' visions to life. We welcome the challenge to elevate designs with motion and sound.

Bringing depth and dimension to our offerings, 9 Lives Design added 3D design to our services in 2015, specializing in the creation of 3D logos and animations.
