Nadine Buckley, Partner

Award-Winning Designer and Art Director

Nadine Buckley has been sketching, drawing and creating all manner of things since a very young age. Let’s just say she loves to figure out how different pieces can fit together to make something functional and fabulous.

Nadine’s way of doing things comes in handy when she is designing brand identity programs, websites, logos, advertising campaigns, furniture, country cabins and so much more.

Since graduating, at the tender age of 19 from Algonquin College in Ottawa with a diploma in Graphic Design, Nadine has been involved in developing, designing and producing in all mediums from traditional print to broadcast, exhibits, signage, brand identity, collateral, websites and digital marketing programs.

In 1996, Nadine was one of the co-founders of McGill Buckley.

Among her copious design accomplishments in the past 30 years is the internationally award-winning Sparks Street Mall advertising campaign, the Bruyére Continuing Care branding program,  the multi-media advertising campaign for Carnivàle Lune Bleue and the Hopes Rising campaign for the Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation. Bruyère, Sparks Street Mall and Carnivàle Lune Bleue were winners of an International Summit Award.

Nadine Buckley has also been the lead designer on branding programs for Deerhurst Resort, Interis Consulting, Brazeau Seller LLP, Wheelchair Basketball Canada, Binks Commercial Insurance, St. John Ambulance Canada, Bruyére Continuing Care, Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation, Equitas Consulting and the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse.

When not pondering colour palettes, fonts and other design elements, Nadine spends her time maintaining a gruelling fitness regimen, improving her boxing skills, trying not to over binge watch Netflix and relaxing in nature at the family cottage in Québec or on a beach in Costa Rica.
