Hi, I'm Nick. Nice to meet you. 

I am a visual designer specializing in brand ID and interface design for web and mobile applications. 

I help my clients find appropriate and desirable solutions through art direction and illustration. 

I am currently designing with the good folks at Input Logic. That being said, I always look to take on a few new clients of my own & meet up with like minded individuals doing awesome stuff in the world of design. This site is a portfolio of some recent projects I have had a hand in shaping. Follow my Dribbble account for my most recent project updates.

Recent Project

The Freshwater Trust

Art Direction // Brand ID // Web

The Freshwater Trust is built on an approach called "quantified conservation." This is the idea that conservation actions must be linked to positive, quantifiable outcomes for the environment. I teamed up with two talented designers on this project. My roles were art direction, web layout and visual design.

Identities

Logos & Identity Systems

Art Direction // Visual Design

Various logo marks and identity systems created over the past few years. This collection is a combintation of marks created while freelancing and while working for various agencies. The goal with every identity job is create a suite of marks that my clients can use across multiple platforms, think of it as "responsive branding".

Illustrations

Client & Personal Projects

Art Direction // Vector Artwork

I am a firm believer that illustrated elements can take project a long way. Whether that be a set of appropriately designed icons for a website or a playful illustration for product packaging, illustration can help push the art direction of a project to the next level. I in most of my spare time. My main styles of illustration are line art and landscape studies.
