Nathan’s background is in design, so as MOTIF’s Account Executive he always has an uncanny idea of what will complement a client’s brand. Nathan loves to test-drive products before suggesting them. His guilty pleasures include being extremely helpful and using words we have to look up later. Office quirk: Office DJ but always blames bad songs on ‘the playlist’.
Laura’s official title at MOTIF is Office Manager but she’s typically up to anything and everything to keep MOTIF growing, including making sure we all get paid. Laura has a background as an administrator working with big teams and is a mother of two active little boys and one Brittany Spaniel named Muddy. She is a lover of food, rap music, fashion, and reading.
Office quirk: often works with MOTIF shop dog Muddy sitting in her lap.
Calina brings incredible precision and organization skills to her position as Production Manager at MOTIF. When she’s not meticulously triple-checking orders for quality and accuracy she likes to camp, garden, crochet, read, and spend time with her pets.
Office quirk: laughs out loud to podcasts she’s listening to on her headphones.
Laura holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Saskatchewan and her background in marketing and product development comes in handy at MOTIF, where she is happy to have the opportunity to be creative every single day as a Designer and Social Media Manager. Her outlook on design is fresh and fun with a focus on texture. Her favourite Saturday activity is brunch.
New hobby: product photography.
Client-turned-MOTIF-team-member Alexandra’s substantial experience in project and brand management is matched only by her tireless energy. At MOTIF Alex runs a tight ship as Project Coordinator. In her spare time, she loves to travel, stay active, and create the best life possible for her dog, Brita. She believes in continual growth, whether professional or personal and always finding the silver lining.
Office quirk: Dislikes being photographed.
Muddy may be the runt of his litter but he has a big presence at MOTIF, where he acts as head of security and also does a little modeling.
Office quirk: naps on the job.
