Young Nicole grew up in Atlanta, the capital of the American deep South. She graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a BFA in design and psychology, snarly hair, and a plane ticket to New York City. After working in NYC for a year and a half, she was offered a grant to become part of FABRICA’s visual communications department in March 2005 in Italy. She spent 14 months in that program, creating graphics and illustrations with a psychological flair. Nicole is now back stateside, living in Brooklyn and freelancing illustration, graphic design and web design. Future plans include riding her bicycle around the world.

Perso, j’aime beaucoup découvrir des artistes au détour de mes voyages sur les sites. Ici l’origine de cette découverte vient du blog de Fabrica. Je vous laisse le loisir d’aller y chiner d’excellentes testimonials d’expériences de graphistes, pour la plupart jeunes ou un peu moins. On ne parlera jamais assez de l’Italie. C’est sûr.
