About

Profile

I’m Chantal – a designer based in Toronto harnessing culture and creativity to transform brands into gratifying experiences. Through user experience design, user interface design, and web development, I strive to make intuitive experiences that inspire users.

My focus is to deliver meaningful value for brands with the goal of helping them succeed, always. Passionate about the intrinsic details that make up the entirety of an experience, I pair design fundamentals with strategic thinking and design for the most suitable outcome of a project. By translating a brand’s needs into stunning creative ideas, I design for experiences brands and their customers are destined to love.

My Style

Simple. Modern. Functional.
I’m a lover of whitespace, striking typography, and enjoy taking a non-traditional approach to layout and compositions. I enjoy projects that are uniquely bound by design fundamentals and out-of-the-box thinking.

I’m drawn to brands and clients that share a love of design and those who are looking to create something that makes an impact. I partner with clients for the long term, because I believe in the importance of long-term success.

Initiatives

The past couple years have been extremely difficult for so many and it’s been inspiring to see the way many independents and small brands have pivoted and adapted to this new environment we live in – not out of choice, but out of necessity. As we watched as many brick and mortar shops transform into online experiences, I thought about the work I do and how I could help brands pivot with an impact.

The solution needed to be inclusive enough to where having previous design experience for shop owners wasn’t an issue, to be considerate of those on a tighter budget, and to be progressive in accelerating the time it takes to get shops online. All of these factors led to thoughtfully designed, ready-to-use website templates. It sounded like a simple solution but designing a website is often the most daunting step for people because it’s truly no small task and it tends to come at a large cost.

Senses Studios offers templates for purchase online in hopes it can help make a difference for SMBs. With the purchase of each website template, a free 1 hour consultation is included in the package, as well as ongoing guidance to help brands be successful in their online journey.
