Encompassing a broad range of skills ranging from art direction, front-end development & responsive web. My project approach is that in order to be a better designer, the development technology needs to be properly considered. For that reason I studied not only fine art & graphic design, but also front-end development in-depth.
I usually consult as a cross-over designer/front-end developer, or acts as an interpreter between departments.
I am especially interested in brand refreshes, concept generation, creative digital projects and responsive web design & builds.
In a nutshell, I enjoy creative problem solving!

Niki was brought in to help our digital side. She worked on various banner campaigns and assisted us with any technical queries that arose. She also helped us with our website by photographing our work and streamlining the process for our junior to take over. Niki is very resourceful and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend her for any projects that require good design and a keen eye.
Katie LeemanClick / Creative Director at DoodleBar
Niki combines a high level of creativity with an in depth understanding of the complexities of web design, working with her was productive in terms of her expanded notions of the potentials held in web design and also in terms of her sensible, and grounded approach to practically organising projects. I cannot reccomend NIki highly enough in relation to her sensitive understanding of the needs and requirements of a very particular web project!

NIki is a highly talented designer with expertise both in a creative and technical capacity. Not only does her design work demonstrate exciting originality but also an acute awareness of the necessity of practical application and fast execution. Highly recommended!
Gavin Richardson / Creative Lead at easyGroup
I only managed Niki for a short time during our recent rebranding work but it was long enough for her to impress me with her talent, versatility and impressively up-to-date knowledge. She is also kind, sensitive and passionate about her work; lovely qualities to have in a freelancer.
