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 — a boutique design shop that specializes in branding-specific design.
I started out as a freelance graphic designer in 2011, working primarily through crowdsourcing sites like Elance and Upwork. 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 — 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 brand or a media platform at first. It was initially just a catchy website address 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 presence where potential clients could see my portfolio and learn more about my services. The site took on a life of its own though.
As the years went by, my content generated so much attention and traffic that I realized the site was too popular to just be a client services business, so the content side of things became a business in and of itself. I started hosting all of my content here on the site and monetizing it in various ways — primarily by offering video courses, guides, and pre-made design templates, as well as affiliate offers.
Logos By Nick is now one of the largest educational resources for open source design on the internet, and it’s also an excellent marketing engine for my freelance services!
