I've been a graphic designer since 2004, and love learning about new industries and different types of design. Although my training was primarily in identity development and print design, I fell in love with website design around 2007.
Website design has changed drastically since then, and being able to keep up with the design and development trends helps me ensure the websites I design and develop are fresh and current and help achieve the intended goals.
I primarily design and develop in WordPress, a content management solution now powering approximately 30% of the world's websites. It is a widely adopted platform with a variety of plugins (free and paid) that will help achieve your site's goals.
After a few years in the advertising and design industry, I ventured out on my own and started Nien Studios, specializing in website design and development.
I primarily focus on small-business websites while also offering 100% custom website design and development.
In addition to website services, I offer branding and marketing services, including: logo design, print materials, package design, and more.
My role as a Senior Designer was to work closely with the Art and Creative Directors to execute and contribute to the design strategy for various projects. Work included: logo design, print material design, package design, poster design, and website design and development.
New to the mead industry, Honey Pot Meadery came to me looking to create a modern and unique identity to help them stand out in a quickly growing market. I designed a new, modern logo, established brand guidelines, and created a simple website that conveys the history and core values of the company.
The Blast, a new celebrity news website, was looking to design a custom WordPress theme for their launch. I designed a set of wireframes to with a rough layout of content and functionality, then took the approved layouts and designed a custom website based on their brand guidelines.
In collaboration with a local website development firm, we designed a custom WordPress theme for the Dallas Mavericks, a professional basketball team in the NBA. The custom WordPress theme included multiple custom page designs that are optimized for viewing regardless if you're on a desktop computer or a mobile phone.
I updated the identity and website of MemberPress, a membership plugin exclusively for WordPress. The new identity included a new and more modern logo with fresh colors and an approachable font. Brand guidelines were also created as MemberPress started implementing their new logo across various forms of media.
The new website design served as an extension of the newly designed identity, using the fresh color palette and approachable fonts to quickly engage users.
