About me:

I am a freelance graphic designer and WordPress developer living in Portland, Oregon. I design and build websites, infographics, and other things for my awesome clients.

I graduated from Portland State University in 2009, with a degree in Graphic Design and Digital Media. Shortly after, I started out my career with Mad Fish SEO, where I really learned my stuff.

My background in SEO really solidified my understanding of how to best optimize a website for search engines, especially from a programming angle. I was the lead on all front-end SEO programming implementation for Mad Fish clients, and also did an extensive variety of other tasks, including designing and/or developing custom websites, WordPress sites, newsletter templates, and designing infographics and image display ads.

Kind words from clients:

Nickie did an impeccable job on our website. She’s a pleasure to work with, a great designer, web editor, and a great communicator. Basically, she’s a web ninja-genius. We highly recommend her and will work with her again in a heartbeat. Hire her! You will be happy you did!

I would highly recommend Nickie for all website needs. She updated and installed a payment processing option on my website. From the beginning, she clearly communicated all necessary steps involved to complete project, and established a realistic timeline that suited our schedules — meetings, deadlines, etc. She was helpful, patient, and willing to go the extra mile to explain the functionality of my new system to a very non-savvy website user. She was easy to work with and made the process enjoyable.
