// About me

DANA BABB-ONYENAKALA
( Day-Nuh / Day-na    Bah-ab    Own-Yea-Nah-Kah-Lah )

I'm a creative media specialist, (born and raised in the beautiful island of Barbados) based in London / Hertfordshire UK. I have over 10 years experience and expertise in web design / development and graphic design, along with a good track record of producing compelling and attractive web environments. I'm a professional and innovative problem solver who works well within teams.

I aspire to bring the clients ideas alive by providing a unique and practical web and print presence.

I have a versatile and wide range of skills which keep me motivated and interested in different ways of approaching design. My clientele (businesses and individuals) continues to grow and spans over several countries; such as United Kingdom, United States, Barbados, Jamaica, St. Lucia, Trinidad, Nigeria and Bahamas. Take a look at my work.

When I'm not designing or coding, you'll find me pushing my body to it's limits with Beachbody workouts (Insanity, Asylum, Focus T25 and Turbofire). I also like food (hence the workouts), dancing and the performing arts, photography, being with family and friends, learning and experiencing new things, going to the theatre, meeting new fascinating people, listening to music, personal development, fashion, cosmetology, travelling, jet-skiing.

  • Dana has shown exception skill in web design. Her work has always brought a refreshing aesthetic to the websites on which she has been commissioned to work.

    I remember Dana as one who was always a leader in her class. Her passion for life is what resonates into her design approach and although web design is very technical her artistic nature allows for her work to stand apart from other generic web pages.

  • Dana, has served me extremely well on two projects one was for the professional design of a brochure for an exhibition, she worked to an extremely tight deadline and did an exceptional job the brochure was seen by many professionals and semi celebrity characters and was commended.

    Dana also designed a personal website for me to which I thought she did an amazing job. She is talented, creative and capable of much more if given the opportunity. She is worth every penny spent on her service. I highly recommend her to meet your business design needs.

  • Can-do attitude! Everything Dana is tasked with is turned around without a problem and as quickly as possible. Dana doesn't just meet the brief but exceeds it - she follows the instructions given and but also allows her creative flair to shine through with new ideas and recommendations/ modifications where needed...

    Innovative! ... Dana can always be relied upon to come up with fresh, creative concepts...

    Reliable! Working with Dana on projects is always stress-free as I know I'm able to trust her to turnaround any deadline agreed upon, guaranteed...

    Total dedication! Projects I worked on with Dana, took a lot of changes and patience for all involved! Dana however made this process as painless as possible for those of us reviewing the new drafts, and undertook all design feedback and typesetting amends like a true professional - often juggling this and other projects submitted, along with multiple deadlines all at once, it often seemed Dana was doing the work of a whole agency team not just 1 person - always producing quality work with a smile!
