My name is Nicola and I am a creative and colourful individual with more side hustles than fingers. I specialise in illustration, print design and visual merchandising.
I currently have an ongoing collaboration to illustrate playful pickle characters for start-up brand Pickle Parlour, together with numerous logos for brands - Fat Tuesday, Filth Pots, Concrete Jungle Yoga and a collection of floral posters for florist,
Blooms by G.
As a self-motivator I am constantly creating every second
of the day. I love to learn and experiment with different disciplines and styles, which led me to the design, produce
and launch of my own brand of soft furnishings, Scho Studio.
My work ethic is excellent, my dedication to exceed in every task and role has resulted in my progression to leadership roles wherever employed. Working as a Visual Merchandiser
for a high-street fashion company, I have adapted to working
in a fast-paced environment that requires excellent organisational skills and entrepreneurial thinking on a daily basis.

She brought a whole new look and feel to our brand that we never could have imagined. Working with Nicola is always an absolute delight, she’s positive, she’s optimistic and she’s colourful. Most importantly she’s full of incredible ideas and enthusiasm. We couldn’t recommend her enough."

"I wanted to contact you to thank you for the logo you created for my yoga business. Your care and attention to detail was so thoughtful throughout. You took time to not just look at the surface level but got to know me as a person to understand my background to give more depth to what I wanted my logo to represent.
The finished product is just perfect and feels even more wonderful that you used an image from your personal archives to base my logo on.
Thank you so much and I cannot wait to work on future projects together."

"As a small business just starting off, Nicola was very welcoming and helpful. I wanted her to design a logo for my company and gave her a very rough idea but essentially I wanted to give her creative freedom to see what she created. The logo she designed exceeded my expectations and more. She presented me with some options and I'm more than happy to say that the final logo completely represents my brand. Her talent as a designer and amazing creativity have gave me a logo that I am proud of. I hope to work with her in future for other ventures as my business grows. I will always recommend Nicola not just for her professionalism but whether you have a set idea or are open to designs like me, she has ideas that you would never of even considered and that to me is the mark of an incredible designer."
