The short answer is that the name itself is two words combined—pixel + digital. To go deeper than that, Pixetal is a personal philosophy, and that design should work as good as it looks. In a real world context, you could say it’s my ikigai—my reason for being and the nucleus of where my passion, profession, mission, and vocation all intersect.
It’s me, Natalie Sharma, and Pixetal is my one-woman studio. I'm originally from Jackson, Mississippi, but now I reside in sunny Redwood City, California. I truly love my job, and crafting custom solutions for web, product, and branding design is my happy place.
I'm a proud honors graduate of Mississippi University for Women with a BFA in Graphic Design. Since then I've accrued 10+ years of experience in design with a grab bag of experience across digital, print, and even signage and packaging. I’m also a frequent remote volunteer and speaker for many non-profit ventures in my home state such as The Bean Path, the Mississippi Coding Academies, and Innovate Mississippi.
