GRAPHIC DESIGN
IS VISUAL ARCHITECTURE

We’re graphic designers who love to get their hands dirty. We take inspiration and ideas, and build them into something real. Brick by brick. A beautiful façade built upon a solid, strategic foundation. Built to solve problems and forge a bond between brand and audience. Built to be remembered.

Our Services

Good design has to be structurally sound, visually appealing and consistent. It has to be true to your brand and meaningful to your audience. That requires collaboration, blueprinting, building and fine tuning – all with a specific business goal in mind.

Graphic Design

This is our cornerstone service. Need a brochure, customized email, social media graphics, signage or packaging? You name it, and we’ll build it to your web or print specifications. Let us deliver your message powerfully and enhance your brand.

Web Design

We design and build professional websites that Google loves and people love more. Using the latest CMS technology, we build sites that are visually stunning, easy to navigate, search engine optimized and mobile responsive. Sites that convert.

Logo Design

The swoosh. The bitten apple. The golden arches. More than a symbol, your logo reinforces how people feel about your brand. It tells your story without saying a word. Let us freshen up your logo or construct a new logo from the ground up.

Illustration

Stock images are useful. But original artwork is completely your own. Whether you need a product mockup, a mural, or a custom illustration for your website or brochure, we love starting with a blank canvas, sometimes quite literally.

Brand Management

Every part of your marketing strategy should be connected and cohesive, and not every business has the time or dedicated workforce to uphold this standard. Let us help you manage and maintain that consistency for you.

Consultation

Want to discuss your business goals and what should be done from a design standpoint to help you achieve them? Is it time to audit your marketing strategy? Pull up a chair and pick our brains. We'll help point you in the right direction.

“Design is the method of putting form and content together. Design, just as art, has multiple definitions; there is no single definition. Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, that's why it is so complicated.”

- Paul Rand

If you see our clients doing cartwheels, now you know why.

About Nikkels Creative

About

“You should be a graphic designer,” they said.  “It’ll be fun,” they said. But as kids, we rebel against what we’re told to do, and naturally that’s what I did.

I was advised to learn graphic design because I have always loved creating art.  Most of my childhood involved having some type of creative apparatus is my hand – a crayon, a pencil, a paintbrush. Calculating the placement of purposeful marks on a blank substraight was my escape, and it was because of this that I never wanted the making of art to become a chore.

By 2002, early adulthood had set in, and as I stumbled, one foot at a time, I ended up taking a gig in the printing industry.  Starting out at the bottom, I saw files being shuffled from graphic designer to client and finally to press. Two years in and I knew they had been right all along.  So with a solid foundation in printing, I headed to school, got an education, cut my teeth as a sole designer of a small print brokerage, and eventually founded Nikkels Creative.

Thanks to years of drawing and painting, the art and creativity of graphic design came easy, and with a long stint in the printing industry, so did my understanding of print processes and file requirements. Web design was learned along the way. Working for a small business, I quickly understood the importance of sound marketing strategy and brand consistency, and the grit required to run a business successfully.

I am happy to share that Nikkels Creative has been providing creative and effective design and marketing solutions for both print and web since 2010. And to this day, has yet to be a chore.

So that’s my story. Now it’s your turn. Let’s talk.

“What is design? It's where you stand with a foot in two worlds - the world of technology and the world of people and human purposes - and you try to bring the two together. "
