The Designer

Meet Nicola

I’m an experienced graphic designer of over 17 years, creating beautiful branding for boutique businesses. I work with clients all over the world but I’m based in Fife, Scotland.

Nothing excites me more than clean lines and pops of colour, except as a self-confessed paper and printing geek, the tactile quality of great print work. Fair to say I am stationery obsessed!

It’s more about you than it is about me

Getting to know my clients is how I can best create authentic, inspired designs that showcase your quality and customer experience, standing you apart in your field.

My clients are usually creative-minded, small businesses looking to create an exciting new identity or refresh their existing brand, to create consistency in their approach and become intentional when it comes to their branding.

I want to know all about you, your journey to date and how we can collaborate to create the brand identity that you dream of.

Here’s some I designed earlier…

On a personal note...

When I’m not creating at my desk and designing to the beat of 90s dance music I love to be creative at home, crafting the perfect ambience with colour and textures and shopping for interior treasures.

I’m down-to-earth and super friendly and love to find inspiring places to spend time, even better if there’s sunshine and cocktails being served. Mojitos are the best!

Most of all, I love having fun with my two kids – my ultimate creations – and my wee Miniature Schnauzer, Jackson.

We don’t really need a crowd to have a party. Just a funky beat and you to get it started
