I’m Nicky

I’m a graphic designer and brand creative with 20 years’ experience in the publishing industry.

I’ve worked in-house in senior creative roles for Palgrave Macmillan and Nature, and as a freelance consultant or designer for BMJ Group, Head of Zeus, Jessica Kingsley, Bristol University Press, Bloomsbury, RightsZone and Manchester University Press – among many others. I know the processes involved in publishing like the back of my hand, and enjoy every quirk and detail of it!

I’d love to work with you to create something exciting; and I specialise in helping to articulate your brand – from values through to visuals, wrapping your content in thoughtful packaging, and creating a consistent and striking design aesthetic. If you’d like to discuss a project, please get in touch. I can help you with book covers, illustrated page layout, typesetting… just about anything you can think of!

I’ve also spoken about design and brand at St Bride Foundation and held lectures and workshops for students at the University of the Creative Arts, Epsom and the London College of Communication. I love doing this, so please message if you are looking for an industry speaker for your event or course.

Double-check my credentials on LinkedIn if you’d like to, no offence taken.
