I’m Nikki. The founder, creator and night owl behind
Night Owl Studio.
What does Night Owl Studio do?
Night Owl Studio is a graphic design company that focuses on small business branding. My job is to create a brand identity that will reflect your style and showcase your business. Did I mention I love my job! It’s so amazing to design a brand identity from scratch and watch it grow and develop throughout the process.
How did I get here?
I have a Bachelors degree in Journalism from the University of Oregon where I focused on Marketing and Advertising. It was in college that I discovered my love for graphic design. I was hired by a private company to build a website (which I had no idea how to do) but accepted the challenge anyway. Through many sleepless nights, long days and few hiccups along the way I launched a website and learned that I loved designing. From that point on I taught myself everything I know about graphic design and learned how to apply everything I’d been taught in school about marketing and advertising to tie the two together. Building brand identities is more than just creating a beautiful logo, it’s about understanding the importance of how it will cater to the demographic of a business, how it’s the face of a company’s advertisement and how it will stand out in a competitive industry.
