Who We Are

Betty Biesenthal – Primo

Betty Biesenthal – Primo

As Creative Director at Design House, I shape and direct all projects, working virtually with a team of conscientious and adaptable designers and programmers to create websites, social media strategies, interactive tools and publications based on effective and engaging communication strategies.

At Design House we work best with clients who recognize the importance of taking a strategic approach to brand building and effective communication tactics. Experience has taught us that the process is a delicate balance of push and pull — and that the most successful projects comprise a balance of both.

We’ve earned a solid reputation for providing superior service. We deliver projects that combine strategic thinking and extraordinary creative wrapped in timely technology that best suits the needs of our clients — and theirs.

Julia Biesenthal – Secondo

I have always interpreted the world through patterns and colours. My studies at the Ontario College of Art and Design University provided the opportunity to explore these creative talents.

As Graphic Designer on the Design House mother-daughter-pug team, I collaborate directly with various clients and team members to facilitate projects from concept through launch.

In addition to my strong design skills, I enjoy a keen interest in various social media platforms that I use as research, strategy and sharing tools.

On my own time, I host a popular Etsy store as an expressive 3-D creative outlet.
