Nina Tovish is owner of Lucid Design, a business dedicated to interactive design and development. Her work includes phases of consultation, specification, prototyping, design, development, and implementation for multimedia projects on the internet, standalone kiosks, and CD-ROM. She serves clients in the not-for-profit, government, and corporate sectors.

Her creative approach is informed by career experience in business communications, journalism, and the visual arts, as well as new media — and draws on a strong technical skill-set, including design, imaging, sound, database, video, animation, and authoring software. She brings incisive writing and editorial skills to textual material, whether destined for print or the web.

She also provides the essential bridge between a client’s needs and the technology requirements of a project, either through her own expertise in the field or through effective communication, collaboration, and coordination with others (engineers and developers, editorial personnel, illustrators, systems administrators, production staff).
