Lesley Hardsand

Design is not only a passion but an obsession for Lesley. Over 26 years ago after three years of College in Toronto for Illustration and Design, with a major in Medical Illustration, she landed the job as a summer intern for the McMaster University Graphics Department and has continued to grow within the ever changing world of design.

Having seen the trend of hand drawing on the drafting table to creating and designing in the latest industry software on her Mac, Lesley has excelled in her award winning career of graphic design.

Having the opportunity to work within the different areas and partnerships that McMaster has embraced with over the years, Lesley has made many friends and colleagues within Hamilton Health Sciences and St. Joseph’s Healthcare. She is now very proud to call Mohawk College her home!

"I will spend hours at Indigo’s perusing books and magazines to check out all the latest trends in colour and design – always looking for that extra spark of creativity and of course to fulfill my love for lattes."

Responsive Web Design

Sounds fancy...

That’s because it is fancy! A responsive web site is one that responds to the device that accesses it and delivers the appropriate output for that device. Rather than designing different sites for different-sized devices, this approach designs one site but specifies how it should appear on various devices. These devices could vary from mobile smart phones and tablets to high resolution desktop computers.

Check out the responsive web sites that we have built, in our portfolio section below!


Content Management Systems

Sounds complicated...

Actually it is the opposite! Content management systems (CMS) are here to make your life easier! Now someone with little to no working knowledge of web design can publish, edit and modify their site’s content. These systems support social media integration and dynamic content. They help build communities through site specific memberships and also help manage workflows in a collaborative environment.

This all sounds great! But now comes the hard part, deciding which CMS is right for you!
