Hi! I’m Nicola, a graphic designer based in Sydney, Australia.
Here's some of my work.
A touch-responsive microsite, designed to showcase the endorsees of the RØDE VideoMic and display each of their videos in a simple, uncluttered way.
iXY stereo microphone
I designed a product launch microsite for the award-winning iXY microphone by RØDE Microphones. Working with the team at RØDE, I also designed the paper packaging, a product manual and print advertising for the product. We're all honoured and proud that both the site and print ads were awarded Gold at the 2013 Horizon Interactive Awards!
I redesigned the RØDE Microphones website from the ground up, auditing their entire online content and site mapping, wireframing and designing a new, tighter and easier-to-use site which displays our content better. This was the biggest project I've been in charge of and I'm so proud of the results!
While working in-house at RØDE Microphones, I've been lucky enough to get to do some really fun and creative projects, designing merchandise like tshirts, stickers, posters and in-store marketing.
I don't do a lot of branding work, but I enjoy it when I get to. Here are some logo concepts I've worked on.
iPhone and iPad app UX and UI
I've been involved in the conceptualisation, wire framing and design of several iPhone and iPad apps.
For two years I was the graphic designer for the University of Wollongong student magazine, Tertangala. Over those two years I laid out twelve issues of the magazine, amounting to somewhere around 700 pages. It was a huge learning curve and a fantastic opportunity. This is a very small selection of that work.
Product manual diagrams
I've drawn many product diagrams and usage diagrams for audio products, working from photographs and AutoCAD files.
While working at web development company Internetrix, I carried out a re-brand across all of their branded materials, including business cards, internal and client documents, and a fully responsive website.
A website for a video competition that I wire framed and designed. I had fun with this one designing form states to create a reassuring and satisfying user experience for people entering videos into the competition.
Three Mates, Seven Seas
I designed and developed a website for the long-awaited travel documentary by the Surfers Against Youth Suicide group, 3 Mates 7 Seas.
Wise Jewellery, a boutique Sydney jewellery design business, asked me to redesign their website. After sitemapping and wireframing, I created a new design as well as their printed collateral, including a new season catalogue.
