Nick Folz, nice to meet you!
I am a designer, illustrator, and lover of layout currently seeking full time employment. Design, to me, means working with two minds: the goal of the producer and the experience of the user. Keeping goals and users in mind leads to design solutions that solve real world problems in beautiful ways.
I have over a decade of graphic design experience in print, digital and interactive. Working on website design, flash ads, and animations, as well as traditional print design, has taught me the tenants of layout and the building blocks of effective composition. I am a Creative Suites expert and a swift and skilled illustrator which gives me the ability to create bespoke graphics tailored to any specific design need. My diverse background affords me the flexibility to think through and execute complex design issues.
I’ve been working in the digital space since the dawn of my career. I have worked within several different Content Management Systems such as WordPress, BlueHornet, and WorldNow. I also know how to write, read, and edit HTML and CSS when needed. From direct email marking messages to interactive and animated ads, I know digital.

Thank you for your time,
