Be Nattie Graphic Designer and Illustrator from Belgium

Welcome to Be Nattie Designs!

My name is Nathalie and I’m a graphic designer, an illustrator, a constant creator.

When I decided to start my own small digital art business, I was looking high and low for that perfect, catchy brand name that everyone would remember and pronounce correctly. Everything that popped up in my mind, was either taken or didn’t sound quite that catchy after all. I was trying too hard to fit in with thorny roses in a glass vase, while being a wildflower belonging in a colourful field.

This little voice inside my soul kept stirring: “Don’t overthink it, keep it simple, just be yourself, be Nattie!”

And so the name for my business was born! Nattie has been my nickname for over 20 years and now I look at people funny when they call me Nathalie…

But what exactly do I want to achieve with my small business and which services do I offer, you might wonder?

  • Frederick Douglass said “It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men” and I fully agree with him! So I decided to become a children’s literature writer and illustrator, inspiring children to defy normal and be brave enough to be themselves.
  • I also create digital children’s portraits, where your child can be pictured in their own little world, be it surrounded by unicorns or flying like Peter Pan, so they can realise their imagination is unique and vital to their happiness!
  • My eco-friendly apparel collection is focused on getting the message out there that everyone is equally unique, with their own talents and skills. We are all artists in some way and we are all earthlings in every way. So we all need to be kind to one another and to our dear Mother Earth.

But enough about me, why are you here and what are you in the mood for?
