ABOUTME

I am a professional, expert designer. I focus on independent contract Art Direction, Brand Design, and consulting. With over 15 years of overall experience working with emerging brands and well-established corporate companies, and 11 years of agency experience, I am well versed in client relationships and am able to professionally walk you through the process for a successful project.

 

I am here to help you create a brand, establish a stronger brand, or be that extra hand on deck to handle your marketing collateral design needs. I focus on solving problems to produce intelligent brands, creative experiences and build meaningful connections. 

 

First impressions are important and having a quality brand design communicates your message, makes your business stand out from the crowd and creates a trusting, lasting relationship with your audience.

 

By investing in a professionally experienced design partner that really understands your needs and is committed to excellence is the best investment you can make for your business!

BRAND

IDENTITY 

DESIGN

“Branding is what people say about you when you’re not in the room.” — Jeff Bezos

A brand is not just a logo design. 

That’s only one tiny part of the branding puzzle. A designer can’t “make” a brand. Brands are made over time, they are born and continue to mature; in the end it's the consumer that has the last word. Designers create brand identities that reflect what a brand represents. Design speaks to the consumer, it draws the targeted audience in. The essence and integrity of the brand is what keeps them coming back.

 

Brand Identity is the collection of all brand elements that a company creates to portray the right image of itself to the consumer.

A FEW THINGS PEOPLE ARE SAYING

I have been working with Nikki for over two years. She has been a great asset to our team in creating our marketing materials including designing case studies, white papers, presentations, web ads, social ads, email blasts, sell sheets, web sites, blog posts, and brand identity. Her work ethic, ability to meet tight deadlines and high-quality design work is exceptional. I would recommend her to anyone who has marketing design needs.
