Welcome! I'm Nicole, a Product Designer & Artist located in Northern Virginia.
My love for design all started while growing up in Richmond, VA where I slowly began my transition from long nights of painting, to learning the ins and outs of Adobe software. I continued to experiment with design throughout my 4 years at Virginia Tech (go Hokies!) and received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Public Relations in 2017.
Immediately after graduation, I found myself moving to Northern Virginia to pursue a career as a designer and have been in the area ever since.
Previously, I designed for political campaigns and various public affairs groups. These two areas encompass a wide variety of design work including but not limited to; campaign branding, digital display advertising, social media graphics, websites, mailers, palm cards, event invitations etc.
Currently, I am employed as a product designer at Bidscale, a government software company. This position involves interpreting user stories into wireframes and workflows for our product engineering team. Our product design team works exclusively within Figma.
Outside of my job, it has always been important to me to expand upon my design knowledge and experiences. I have participated in various design events/programs in the DMV area including the AIGA DC SHINE mentorship program, AIGA DC Design Week and Ladies, Wine, & Design DC. These experiences have allowed me to network with successful women and men in the area and keeps me up-to-date on new design programs and trends.
