My name is Celine Sawchuk, and I am the Owner and Founder of Mind Palace Design. I was born and raised by a very musical and creative family in the middle of the Black Forrest of Germany. After graduating from school, I studied graphic design and photography at the "Academies of Communications" in Pforzheim Germany. After my studies, I moved to Canada to be with my husband. We married and built our beautiful home on Salt Spring Island, which was leading me to the decision to start up my own little business. I love playing music (I sing and play Cello since I was 5 years old) and since the beginning of 2020, I am a proud mother of a beautiful little boy. Canada has helped me to commit to adventures, follow my passion and start a family which I am really grateful for.

I mainly work with the Adobe Creative Cloud, Word and PowerPoint. Mainly I design print media, home decor take product-, interior and exterior shots. I specialize in european Design, because I got my design skills from a German Design College. Mostly my designs are kept simple, with a little touch of something extra. I make it my goal to give my customers exactly what they needed and love seeing how my work gets used after it leave my table.
Why the name "Mind Palace Design"?
The Mind Palace technique employs a memory technique invented by the ancient Greeks. It is an imaginary location in your mind where you can store mnemonic images. The most common type of Mind Palace involves making a journey through a place you know well, like a building or town. Along that journey there are specific locations that you always visit in the same order. The locations are called loci, which is Latin for locations. Basically, you'll make visual representations (mnemonic images) for each of the things that you want to remember. I personally got the idea of naming my business "Mind Palace Design" from reading and watching Sherlock Holmes. He uses the Mind Palace strategie to solve his cases. As a Designer you have to have fitting Ideas for your costumers. An idea is created by brainstorming in your head and then bringing it to life. Almost like a detective, you try to unearth the customer ‘s personality, behavior and style to create exactly what they need or want.
