My name is Nikhil Sharma. I am a Graphic Designer hailing from Sidcup, South East London. As a designer I take great pride in picking up on design trends and skills to inject into a team and listening to my clients to communicate my ideas to fulfill the brief. It’s a great challenge, and one, which I find truly rewarding when we get it right. My work; rich in both digital and traditional design, stretches from visual identity and branding to animation storyboards and iconography, which is evident through the clients showcased throughout my portfolio, such as, JTI, Avon, British Red Cross, Disorder Magazine and Santander.
The work ranged from small print to large digital projects. Typically we would design and develop case studies and pitch proposals, specifically for events in the internal communications area of business. Each event is custom built on a project by project basis, entirely on the client’s needs. The production varies from print design work, from a name badge to booklets, banners of all sizes, internal comms materials such as posters, booklets but also large events and interior graphics. In addition to this, digital design from twitter posts to intricate websites and animation storyboards.
