Synaptic Design is an experience design firm that creates highly intuitive interfaces for biotechnology and educational training. We make complex concepts simple by design.

The Founders

Alex and Natalie met in 2003.  As teens, they dedicated their free time to creative problem solving. Their Destination Imagination team became the foundation of their belief in merging art and technology. They fell in love with the idea of applying the rigor of the left brain to the inventive right. And, simultaneously, each other. After a decade of collaboration, they continually find inspiration and solutions within each other’s fields.
