Natalie Hands Studio

Natalie Hands 

Founder / Creative Idea Lady (CIL)

Natalie officially founded the studio in 2016 after working as the Art Director for a candy company. She decided it was time to do something that was more fulfilling to her, and that positively impacted others. Since then, Natalie has worked with over 150 brands, small and large, visually communicating their message the right way and getting tangible results. Nat's a true lover of organization and a firm believer in the power of processes. She has experienced the joy of being published, multiple times, and also featured on Behance for digital illustration. When she's not running the show here at the studio, you can find her making things for fun, exploring Oregon's beauty, brainstorming another side hustle (or two), or relaxing with the intern and her amazing fiancé.

Meaghan Lee 

Design + Project Assistant

Meaghan brings a vast variety of communications experience and Chicago-bred hustle to the Studio. After earning a Bachelor’s of Design (in graphic design), she applied her passion for visual language, copywriting, and digital marketing across fields including music, technology, food, and real estate. Since then, she has adopted Twin Cities and helped brands amplify their creative strategies, digital presence, and engagement possibilities. Now, she's fired up to contribute to the moving, shaking, and magic-making here at the Studio. When she’s not "playing" at work, you can find her traveling, tracking down alternative eats and sounds, or spending time with her fiancé and plush pets. 80’s music and fries 'til she dies.

Noodles Hands

Cute Intern

Noodles is quite a cutie, but she truly is the worst intern ever.
We realized that if we fired her, she would still just hang around the studio all the time, so we let her remain an unpaid intern. Noodles loves lounging in the sun, catching bugs, taking walks, munchin' on celery or bananas, and playing in one of the many rivers beautiful Oregon has to offer. She may not know how to email or post to socials, but she sure can do a good 'stand' or 'fist bump.' She's been our grunty little intern for 4.5 years now and sometimes can be heard in the background on client calls. You can see more of Noodles on our highlighted Instagram story, titled 'INTERN.'
