About

Nadia Soucek - Owner of NS Design in Seattle, Washington.
Hi, I’m Nadia Soucek!

I’m the woman behind NS Design. On an average day, I wear many hats including an accountant, editor, designer, developer, artist, photographer, and writer. I have been a lifelong student of graphic design. My parents met while working as graphic designers and instilled a love for design in me from a young age. Never did I think I would pursue a career in design, but my love for design has been a constant thread in every job I’ve held.

I absolutely love working with clients who have a vision for their business and are enthusiastic about taking it to the next level. My job is to be a guiding light through the design process. We’ll work together to channel your passions into a visually cohesive identity for your branding or website.

Elevating your business should be a pleasant experience and I’ll be here to help you through each step of the journey. Together we’ll dive deep into your vision, your target audience, and your competition to ensure your business is well positioned to stand out and attract the type of customers you love.  

The story behind NS Design

In 2016 after being laid off from a job I loved (another story for another day), I decided to take my side-hustle full time. I knew I could offer clients something that the organizations I worked for never found very important– a tailored design experience that focused on the client’s customer needs.

It never made sense to me that the people designing were not in communication with those using the product. Often developers wouldn’t communicate with customer service staff to understand what problems customers ran into on a particular site, or what information was confusing. That’s why I place emphasis on rooting my design process in strategy and focusing on your target audience so we understand who we are designing for, how they might use it, and how we can keep them coming back for more.

A little bit about my personal life

Currently, I’m based in Seattle, Washington where I live with my husband and baby daughter. In 2018 I was living in Frankfurt, Germany while my husband was on conducting research. In the past ten years, I’ve lived in Munich, Hong Kong, and Seattle. Traveling plays a big role in inspiring my design aesthetic and love for languages.  I am an avid bird-watcher, natural history fiend, love to hike, eat pastries and tacos, and am a new mom.

Fun fact: I met my husband while on a year-long study abroad program in Munich, Germany!
