Nicknack Workshop
Warehouse21-08-2017-0777_RET_Web.jpg

Hi!

I'm Nicole Melville. The art director, illustrator and creative thinker behind nicknack and gay gatsby. My favorite thing to do is snuggle with my pup, Eloise. My second favorite thing to do is create. This is when I am most happy. 

I'm always thinking of ideas. Seeing an idea come to life is what (I assume) a proud parent would feel upon graduation day. You nurture it, mold it and send if off into the world hoping that it does great things. 

I like to surround myself with brilliant folks on all fronts who value the craft and the process. This only encourages me to up my game. Go team! This is the master plan I've carried throughout my career. When I was younger, I would always play basketball with the older kids. They were always better (and taller) than I was, which helped improve my game. While I haven't gotten much taller since then, I still value learning, sharing and healthy competition.

My third favorite thing is Taco Tuesday.

Skills: Sketch, XD, InVision, Zeplin, Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, Slack, Trello, concepting, strategy, UX/UI process, interaction design, visual design, prototyping, wireframing, and graphic design.
