At yesterday’s Annual General Meeting, Edmonton Heritage Council voted for a series of new directors to join and among them was The Drawing Board owner and editor-in-chief, Nakita Valerio. It is an honor to support the vision of the EHC which is an Edmonton that embraces its diverse heritage, inclusive of all people, communities and […]
Let’s file this under the category of “advice I didn’t follow in grad school, but should have.” There are a lot of think-pieces surfacing these days on the mental health cost of being an academic, and rightfully so. The rise of neo-liberalism in academic institutions has put unseen pressures on academics, provided them with less […]
In my last article about the hysteria around Canada’s Motion 103 on Islamophobia this past winter, I alluded to the idea that Islamophobia as a term might not accurately convey anti-Muslim bigotry or racialized hatred endured by Muslims. I also noted how in the discussions around the use of that term in the federal motion, […]

Elisabeth and Nakita reviewed my CV and rewrote it in preparation for an academic job application. During the process, they would ask me questions for information about my achievements and work experience in order to reflect a positive image in the final product. When I received the finished CV, the output they provided me exceeded my expectations in both design and content. Thank you both, Elizabeth and Nakita for such a quick turnaround on very short notice.Eman Al Dabbas, University of Alberta
Our website went down and completely disappeared (we had been using a different developer) and Nakita was amazing at getting it up quickly and efficiently. She built a brand new website and completely rebranded up with the intense enthusiasm she is known for. She really takes ownership of your business brand and makes you believe it is her own – she cares about everything looking and sounding perfectly, coming up with exciting, new and brilliant ideas to keep up with the demands of the internet and technological age. She brought us to the forefront of 2016 and within a couple days of the website and social media launch, we are already seeing the results. Her business knowledge is top notch and I would recommend her services to anyone.The Gilded Pear (New)
Thanks so much to Nakita for her writing services for my website. I struggle with coming up with the right words myself so using a professional like Nakita was a no brainer. She is a very talented and comes up with the perfect words every time. I’ll definitely be utilizing more of her services in the near future.Angela Patrick, Tumbleweed Portraits and Photography
I just started my new massage therapy business and after many failed attempts on trying to make myself a “free, easy, do-it-yourself” website, I felt frustrated. It was time-consuming and required creative thinking on what to write. Having a brand-new business, I knew that spending a huge amount on a website was not in the budget. I posted a quick question on Facebook about anyone that builds websites and one of my friends recommended Nakita. I have known Nakita for many years now and I was thrilled to find out she was in the business of making and managing sites, blogging and all the other amazing stuff she does. She is a perfectionist, an artist and an amazing writer – a beautiful combination for creating a website. I contacted her immediately, was impressed with her pricing, gave her the info she needed and off we went. I love the website she created. You give her blog topics too (or leave things up to her), she does the research and produces writing, catered to your area of business – it’s a real weight off my mind. She’s a superstar and I’m so happy with her services!Paula Pesonen, RMT, Owner, Being Massage Therapy
Since the beginning of my initial inquiries about building a website/blog, Nakita has been positive, passionate and very helpful. She is confident and capable and let me rest easy knowing that she would easily handle it. Nakita was readily available for feedback and discussion, and delivered a top-notch product in a tight deadline. I would highly recommend The Drawing Board to any business entrepreneur.Michelle Johnston, Mindfulness Together
Nakita has an eye for detail that verges on perfectionism which is what you want in someone managing the content of your website. She regularly took simple bullet-notes and made them into wonderful written works. This saves us a lot of time and effort! Her technical knowledge is amazing and she often went into the realm of design or web-building to get the perfect look for the content across. She offered sound guidance about different ideas for the future of the website and, in this, we felt like she had a lot of knowledge about what might catch the viewer’s eye to sell our products and services effectively. This was after simply looking at the existing website and determining what we needed. Her prices are fair and reasonable! We would have paid a lot more for everything she did for us!The Gilded Pear
I have been working with The Drawing Board for six months now and I couldn’t be more thrilled with how our relationship has developed. Nakita delivers exactly what I am looking for in a very timely manner. Sometimes, I only provide her with a few scraps of notes and ideas, and she really works hard to bring them to life. Our business is very technical and jargon-oriented, but she never fails to make our posts and informations easily understood and accessible. She is great to work with and makes my life a lot easier. Thank you so much to The Drawing Board for the great work and service!Sara Murray, Marketing Coordinator, Behrends Group of Companies
Nakita’s eye for perfection was evident while designing and writing my daugher’s wedding programs and powerpoint wedding video. She was given pictures, itineraries, colour preferences and a bit about the bride’s personality, and with this, she was able to work on the ceremony and reception programs, the video and the thank-you notes after the fact. Her level of detail went far beyond the call of duty as she researched the birthplace of the groom, including images of his hometown in the video and music representative of his culture and region. I should note that Nakita was given these tasks very last-minute, but she worked efficiently and quickly, taking an enormous amount of stress off of the rest of us for wedding duties. The quality of her services and the products that she provided were amazing and made my daughter’s day truly personal and special.Bonnie Grimmon
