About Logos By Nick
Graphic Designer & Content Creator
In 2018 the Logos By Nick YouTube channel reached a milestone of 100,000 subscribers!
I’m Nick, a Philadelphia-based graphic designer, content creator, and founder of Logos By Nick LLC — an educational media platform for learning about graphic design.
I started out as a freelance graphic designer in 2011, working primarily through crowdsourcing sites like Elance and Upwork. Logo design was my best-selling service, and it was the type of design I enjoyed most, so I branded myself as a logo designer. During my time on Elance and Upwork I served over 1,000 clients.
In 2015 I launched LogosByNick.com as an independent platform where I could offer my services and build a business infrastructure of my own. I promoted the site by creating content that brings in search traffic — primarily YouTube videos and written articles for users of open source design software.
About Logos By Nick…
“Logos By Nick” wasn’t intended to be a media platform at first. It was just a catchy and memorable URL that says what I do and wasn’t yet taken, so I ran with it. At the time I was just doing business under my own name and looking for a basic single-page website where potential clients could see my portfolio and learn more about my logo design services. However, the website took on a different trajectory over time.
As the years went by, the content I created to promote my freelancing services gained so much traction that it began to take precedence over freelancing as I became more known as an educator than a service provider. This opened up an opportunity for me to turn the website into more than just a sales page for design services.
Logos By Nick has since grown into one of the largest educational platforms for graphic design on the internet, serving over 10 million visitors per year across all channels.
Logos By Nick operates the following YouTube channels…
- Logos By Nick: The main channel for tutorials and educational content centered around Open Source graphics applications like Inkscape and GIMP.
- Design Made Simple: For tutorials and lessons on commercial design software like Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and Affinity Designer.
- Make It Mobile: A new channel I started in 2021 for learning about graphic design with mobile applications like Procreate, Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo for the iPad.
