Hi! I’m Nicola, a graphic designer based in Sydney, Australia.

Here's some of my work.

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!

RØDE Microphones website

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!

Tertangala Magazine

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.
