Hi! I'm Nina.
I'm a professional designer and art director who has been providing print and web design solutions for nearly 20 years. After earning my BFA from Rochester Institute of Technology, I moved to NYC, where I landed my first job as a graphic designer at a small design studio. I had my hands in everything from design, to client engagements to press checks. That unique first job gave me the skills to work in any environment. I have since lived and worked in Boston, Rochester and Austin. I've worked for large firms, small agencies, start-ups and in-house departments. I can take a project from conception through production with an in-depth knowledge of the design process for both print and digital design.
I have successfully owned a freelance business for 15 years. I also currently work as the lead art director, managing a team of B2B and B2C designers, working with in-house stakeholders on integrated multi-channel marketing campaigns. Projects run the gamut from digital and social campaigns to direct mail, landing pages, video, and print collateral. As the design lead, I have my hands in everything from high-level tactical strategy and campaign conceptualization to art direction and design execution. As a manager, I help to guide and advocate for my team, which enables them to create award winning work in a supportive, challenging, rewarding environment. Prior to that, I taught Design Communication at Austin Community College. I am passionate about smart design and creating cohesive design systems. I'd love to partner with you on your next project!
