Meeting Nicole Milici

April 30, 2011 - 1:28 pm 2 Comments

I absolutely love being around creative people – definitely a perk of working at a marketing agency where great ideas and talent are readily accessible. It’s the whole notion of a creative journey that starts with a figment of an idea and leads to something both new and tangible, a manifestation of hard work and imagination. Gets me every time. After coming across a valuable article on how to ignite your creative spark, I started musing about how personal the entire design process is. Everyone works differently – and it’s downright fascinating to see the diverse ways in which designers go about creating their pieces.

Known for her eye-catching designs, Nicole incorporates the true spirit of her clients into every piece she makes, valuing the winning combination of aesthetics and corporate messages. Let’s see how she does it!

How would you sum up your creative process?
Listen, research, brainstorm, and create.

What are the things that inspire you to create?
Other amazing artists, musicians, dancers, and creative people…even one of my 5-year-old twin boys, who won an art award for his incredible rendering titled “Ladybug” in his Kindergarten class. He inspires me every day!

What time of day do you feel most inspired?
Middle of the night or in a car. Always when I don’t have a pen!

What kind of music do you like to listen to when working?
Opera…weird, I know. I think Andrea Bocelli is a hottie.

How do you get your creative juices flowing when you’re feeling stuck?
When I’m stuck, I play hooky and leave whatever I am trying to do or wherever I am. I just vanish. I’ve felt prolific again in an aisle at Stop & Shop or in a shoe department. Amazing how a sweet pair of stilettos can get you out of a rut.

Any specific trends you’re noticing in design work?
All design work is turning Mobile. If you are a graphic designer, figure out how to make a good design in a digital 3×4 inch area for a phone. It’s the wave of the future!

What’s your favorite part of designing a piece?
Each one is unique and contains the essence of the organization, product, or person, reflecting it visually. That’s powerful.
