activate! get perspective and build emotional connection with everyone who engages with your business. activate! helps modern businesses reimagine new experiences and lead with creative thinking.


Hello, my name is Niya. I support business leaders in simplifying, concretizing and bravely inventing new industries and markets with design.
I believe business has the power to increase quality of life, fulfill personal purpose and transform customers into brand family. SIMPLIFY TO AMPLIFY is a guiding principle I find indisputable.

I work with leaders first as a consultant where we gain perspective and focus and second as a digital crafter and communications steward. That is, activate! addresses obstacles and crafts of communication with your customers. We arrive at the most essential path that moves your business the furthest… fastest. It starts with a 30 minute conversation.

Working with Niya was a powerful experience…

… with stellar results. She brings an amazing depth of technical and design experience. As well as beautifully integrated with an extraordinary creativity and business branding savvy. This was exactly what I wanted and needed to finally get my fiction author platform built and launched. I knew going in that good things would happen, but I have to say, my expectations were greatly exceeded. Breakthroughs happened for me that I never expected, in terms of branding possibilities, and the online “home”


She built to house and express my presence as an author. She excels not only in the experience aspect, but also, in its solid, yet flexible framing. On top of that, I greatly appreciated Niya’s work ethic as well as her intelligent and supportive approach. She is a true professional and a gifted communications designer who will not hesitate to (gently!) coach and challenge you in order to ensure the best possible outcome for you and your ventures.


Design is where science and art break even.
