who i am

I am an Aussie Art Director with designer roots. Restless and wanting to see more of the world, I moved to London in 2014 and since then have worked on campaigns around the world for brands such as Depop, Twitch, This Girl Can, Nike, Bvlgari and Nivea.

I have also been a mentor, judge and speaker for Google RARE, D&AD New Blood, DMAs, Creative Circle, Behance and The Dots during my career.

I can speak 一点点 Chinese.

Outside of work, I enjoy yoga (I’m qualified!), gaming, skating, reading and rice (in any form).

words from others

“It's a rarity as a project manager to work with a creative who not only challenges the way you see things, but is also totally empathetic and understanding of process. A true team player, Nicole has a collaborative outlook on life that for me created the perfect working environment. No thought is too silly, debate is encouraged, mutual respect is tantamount. She was also essentially our team's social secretary and has made a lasting impact on our organization that I'm sure will be felt for years to come.“ - Lauren Sadler, Senior Project Manager

“ Nicole brings an incredible energy and fresh thinking to any project she works on. She is passionate, talented and has an extremely strong sense of visual aesthetic. I wish she was still working with us.”
- Owen Lee, Chief Creative Officer

"Two things make a creative an ideal member of the team. Talent and initiative. Nicole has both in spades. She is, without doubt, one of the most impressive creatives I've encountered in my time in adland."
- Stefanie DiGianvincenzo, Creative Director

"She is often the life of the department, bringing an enthusiasm and energy for everything she does which value can not be overstated."
- Evan Jones, Creative Director

"She's a lateral thinker, extremely proactive and organized, and is just a pleasure to be around and have on my team. I'd recommend Nicole for any project needing conceptual creative thought and execution, because I'm confident she can deliver against anything thrown her way."
- Natalie Chomin, Senior Project Manager

"The times we’ve worked together have been highly creative, fun and energising periods where we’ve shared a fantastic team camaraderie and enjoyed a very productive and creative working environment."
- Michael Cunningham, Senior Designer

"Nicole is definitely a one-of-a-kind creative. Her versatility and eagerness ensure her ideas are well-considered from all angles. She possesses a contagious work ethic that spreads to everyone she works with."
- Harjet Mander, Senior Copywriter
