testimonials.

“Natalia is an excellent, creative, practical, tasteful artist and graphic designer, with very good sense for high-end commercial and legal markets, the best I have seen in the competitive Chicago, national and international arenas. Her work on the BeemLaw website, brochures, advertisements, folders, and invitations, in electronic and print media, was creative, classy, and well done, much better than anything that my firm and I could have imagined. In addition, Natalia is responsive and prompt, able to work under tight deadlines, and a good manager of her own projects. She understands the big picture while being detail-oriented. Her services are not inexpensive, but fairly priced, and of real value.” - Rich Beem / Beem Patent Law Firm, Owner & Patent Attorney
“Natalia and I have been working together for over three years now, and I love her work! She is so creative, offers her expertise and opinion to each project and is just a wonderful person in general.”
- Lindsey Burke / Yorktown Center, Marketing Manager /   Jones Lang LaSalle Americas, Inc.
“I have known Natalia for the last ten years. As an Architect, I have worked with her in different capacities during the last six. First as a fellow employee when she was an apprentice graphic designer; later as a project graphic designer; and presently. Since she has started her own practice, she has worked on several projects for me and my firm. Natalia is the complete “idea” package: she has a real knack for graphic design; she consults on architectural design and finishes on both the interiors and exteriors of buildings; she’s an excellent photographer; she is innovative in her work and knows how to present her ideas with both a tact and a positive energy that lets you accept her ways with the same enthusiasm.” - Ed Lugowski / Edwin H. Lugowski Jr. AIA Architect, Owner
“Natalia is a pleasure to work with. Her understanding of design and marketing is extremely high. She delivered outstanding work that shows how knowledgeable she is in her field. Natalia was able to efficiently organize the creation and implementation of all marketing materials we hired her to create without any issues compromising quality. She went above and beyond the scope of work we originally hired her for in order to exceed our expectations. Natalia's work ethic and organization is unmatched. She is everything you can ask for in a designer, and more.” - Jim Trahanas / Express Hair Studios, Inc., Founder
“Thank you very much for all of your help with our Bellezza development. We don’t know what we would do without your expertise.”
- Michael Mazzei / Koenig & Strey, Vice President & Brand Executive   Angie Schneider, John Krueger, Diane Andrews / Koenig & Strey
“I work with Natalia on both traditional graphic design projects as well as interactive website design and she has surpassed all of my expectations. Our clients really enjoy working with Natalia and we appreciate her keen sense of design, strategic insight and dedication to the project. Natalia has a talent for translating the business strategy into a compelling design that helps differentiate the brand in the marketplace. Natalia is also a very good value because she thinks about a project in a broader manner and brings unique ideas to the table that improves the marketing platform. I strongly recommend Natalia for her insight, creativity, integrity and exceptional personality.” - Daniel M. O’Brien / Vivid Ascent, CEO
“It is with distinct pleasure and without reservation that I recommend Naty Botero and her company, Botero Design, to all businesses looking for professional design agency services. As President and Founder of DePaul Kellstadt Marketing Group, I had the privilege of working with Naty on the development of brochures, signs, billboards, posters, and more. From her outstanding work on these early projects, I knew that I wanted to partner with Naty in the future. Naty has a unique style of design, but is able to collaborate with clients by listening intently to the brand attributes desired and then asking the right questions to ensure the right direction for the design elements of a project. Tight deadlines are never ideal for a designer, but Naty is able to quote realistic job completion under significant time constraints and still produce high quality work. Naty also goes above and beyond the design aspects of the projects she works on and is very helpful in final content editing. In fact, just recently, as a Consultant with Cutting Edge Hospitality, I hired Naty to develop the brand design for a new restaurant concept but she quickly became more than a designer for hire. Naty worked with our team to redesign the presentation of the restaurant’s business plan, menu design, billboards, web banner ads and more, which has helped secure initial pre-seed capital. What most impresses me about Naty is her personal drive to help others. She completed design work pro-bono for DePaul University and in the process showed her exceptional ability to transform ideas into ingenious imagery. Naty is helping people make their dreams a reality by getting words off the page and into graphic design. For anyone that wants to give their organizations or projects a visual life, they should look no further than Naty Botero & Botero Design.” - Neil Feuling / Cutting Edge Hospitality, Consultant
“I’ve used Natalia for several design projects. The first project we worked on was a particularly difficult one. I needed to solve a point-of-purchase display problem and Natalia’s design sense and knowledge of her craft helped me develop an attractive display that has been well received in the marketplace. I choose Natalia over her less expensive competitors and was very glad I did. Natalia is very easy to get along with and continues to provide me with outstanding service. I recommend her without hesitation.” - Kevin Crowell / Asia Business Group, President
“Natalia came to me as a recommendation from a colleague. I needed a logo for a local non-profit to use at an annual fund-raiser. The logo needed to capture both the event (an art auction) and the beneficiary (human rights-related programming). Natalia was able to seamlessly move from concept to deliverable, on time and under budget. She’s been a pleasure to work with and continues to remain a go-to for the organization as planning for the event progresses. Her insight and forward-thinking have contributed much more than a mere logo. Natalia’s partnership has been a priceless value-add for the organization.”
- Emily Parker / Heartland Alliance’s Junior Board Member /   The ROC Group, Consultant
“Natalia’s graphic design product is excellent. She is creative, professional, detail-oriented, and great to work with overall. We gave her an abstract idea for our fund-raising event - The Art of Human Rights - and she came up with a great logo that portrayed both the art and human aspects. She follows direction and also provides her expertise along the way. On top of all this, she is the nicest person! I would highly recommend Natalia / Botero Design for any graphic design needs.” - Brooke Billings / Heartland Alliance, Director of Special Events
“Naty and I started working together this year to help launch a new non-profit organization that created a formal community for graduate students at DePaul. On day one, she immediately jumped in to help us meet our objectives; her enthusiasm was contagious. Naty’s provided significant input into the look and feel of our brand and how it would resonate with our membership. She used her expert skills and creativity to extend the brand into various elements that would be experienced by our membership. I view Naty as more than our design expert but as our strategic business partner. She asked questions to better understand our objectives and call-to-action allowing her to produce the most effective materials. I would highly recommend Naty.”
- Lori Chavez / DePaul University - Kellstadt Marketing Group   Vice President, Marketing & Branding / MBA 2008, Marketing
“Naty worked as a designer with the Kellstadt Marketing Group to help us develop our marketing collateral. She is an integral partner to our group’s success. Her work is first rate. She is a brilliant designer!! I highly recommend her work.”
- Phoebe Peterson / DePaul University - Kellstadt Marketing Group   Executive Vice President / MBA Candidate, 2010
“Natalia did an amazing job on my logo. Before starting on it, she made sure knew every detail to the business, so the logo would reflect just that. She is very creative in her designs, and I would recommend her to anyone!” - Jamie Tushner / Glow on the Go, President
“Natalia, the programs turned out beautifully! Thank you again for all of your hard work and creativity. This was a wonderful project for us and was a wonderful evening.” - Rebecca Ryan / Cristo Rey High School, Director of Special Events
