    My time at Marlin was very productive as it was the pre-tax period and I worked on many advertising campaigns for the not-for-profit sector. I came up with concepts, pitched to clients, worked closely with copy team to come up with engaging marketing material and delivered final design. Clients I worked with included MSF, Sydney Children's Hospital, Alzheimer's Australia, Caritas Australia and World Animal Protection.

    It was a fabulous opportunity to work with organisations that are making a positive change and difference both locally and world wide, this made the campaign development and execution both exciting and very rewarding.

About Nikki

I am an ex-Sydney based digital / graphic designer and illustrator recently relocated to Hobart, Tasmania. I have been working successfully with agencies and studios remotely from my studio since arriving.

I have over 7 years experience working in studios, agencies and publishing houses in Sydney. I have worked across branding, advertising campaigns from concept to design execution, magazine layouts for print, digital publishing using both DPS and Oomph (I set up and designed the launch of the frankie magazine app), online web assets, eDMs, print collateral and marketing materials and a strong interest in typography particularly hand lettering and illustration.

Please feel free to say hello! :)
