Nicole Miller

Graphic Designer with an emphasis in UX/UI Design & Motion Graphics

I am a graphic designer with an emphasis on UX/ UI design with a passion for art. Coming from a background in customer service and design, I’ve gained experience from freelancing while working for small companies and startups. My goal is to find a way for users to have the most efficient user experience through creative visually appealing design elements.

Most of my ideas are from quotes or inspirational pieces. Prior to working, I brainstorm and sketch ideas on paper or on my Wacom Tablet. The next step is to draft sketches, wireframes, and style guides with the use of colors, typography while creating computer graphics on Adobe programs such as Photoshop, Illustrator, and Aftereffects.

I got to learn various areas such as marketing and writing. In the content that I've created or edited, I implemented SEO techniques and conducting website audits to make sure all content is optimized for the web. Using the right keywords, creating meta tags, and easy navigation are some ways to appear in search engines.

I obtained an Associate's degree at Orange Coast College in 2011 and as of December 2020, I’ve completed a UX certificate at Orange Coast College and this would be a good opportunity to pursue gaining more experience. In addition, many workshops and online courses help strengthen my skill set. My overall mission is to express my creative side by constructing original work that represents each brand.
