Novahurst Creative / About

The Creatives

Creating remarkable work demands multi-layered thinking: a focus on usability and functionality, a clear visual concept, and a broad understanding of the available tools and technologies.

Our Approach

We help people clarify and focus their goals. In the time we work together we will become fascinated with whatever it is that you do. We will ask tons of questions and make lots of suggestions. We are all about building relationships, and we're with you for the long haul. In our experience that just gets better results. If we can understand your business we can truly gear our work to help elevate everything you do, to better communicate with your customers and to help shape the future of your company and products.

Steve Hurst

Steve has been building for web since the early 90's when the internet was a dark and scary place. Fortunately, his design sense has improved with time. He co-founded Novahurst Creative in 2005 after leaving his job as Creative Director at Alignent, a software firm based in southern California. Steve leads every project with the goal to exceed client expectations of their brand, and assure the most effective user experience. He doesn't rest until every pixel is in its proper place.

Vesy Ivanova

Vesy started out as an artist in the digital medium, eventually migrating to commercial graphic design where she found much joy in the more practical applications of the visual arts. She has been working in the field since 1993. Vesy approaches each project as though the client's company were her own. Her goal is always to execute a beautiful and successful interpretation of the client's vision and to provide the audience with an experience that is both striking and familiar.
