Hello! I’m Nik, a freelance graphic designer
As a freelance graphic designer with 15 years of experience, I’m here to help you to create a winning visual presence that will capture your audience and leave a lasting impression for all the right reasons. Offering competitive rates and genuine enthusiasm, I’m 100% committed to delivering tangible results.
I have a real passion for the whole design process; working with my clients to understand their business, developing new concepts to encapsulate their offering and bringing ideas to life. Every job is different and gives me the opportunity to flex my creative muscles – what’s not to love?!
Graphic design Sheffield
Although I’m based in Sheffield, I provide graphic design services to clients in Leeds, Barnsley, Doncaster, Chesterfield and throughout the UK.
In addition to my specialist areas in digital illustration, business branding, brochure and print, I can also cater for your email marketing, web design and front end development needs too. This gives you the added benefit of being able to hand all of your digital and visual requirements to one reliable provider for a more consistent and coherent business identity.
My priority is ensure that every client enjoys the creative experience, so I guarantee a smooth process, a personal yet professional approach and quality output every time.
My background as a graphic designer
I haven’t always been a freelance graphic designer; I started out at a small agency during the great .com boom and was lucky enough to work with a diverse range of clients. From household names such as Renault and Aunt Bessies, to smaller organisations and start-ups, these experiences taught me to be flexible and gave me the opportunity to adapt and build on my skills across a variety of formats and disciplines.
My career in graphic design has been an exciting journey, but here’s the fast-track version; since my agency initiation, I’ve worked as both a studio manager and a creative director – in the latter post I helped the company to grow from a 4-man team to a large agency in Sheffield. My various roles have seen me working on print design (including large format), point of sale, web design and a multitude of associated ventures for local businesses and blue chips including EMI and Universal Records.
Of course, it’s not just being able to ‘talk the talk’ that matters, it’s important for you to see that I can ‘walk the walk too! So please feel free to browse my portfolio to see some recent examples of web and graphic design projects I’ve worked on – and if you think I might be the freelance graphic designer for you, give me a call on 0114 3830 433 and we can have an informal chat to discuss your specific requirements.Follow me on Twitter
I have been lucky enough to be asked to write articles for some online blogs and jumped at the chance. Article writing is something that I have enjoyed doing and below is a growing list of the articles I have written or contributed towards. I was also delighted to be asked to participate in the .NET Magazine feature ‘Build Off” where I, and two other designers are given a brief and left to produce our own solutions.
