HELLO

My name is Nicholas Miner. I have been designing for 8 years and I am obsessed with it. Graphic design has gone from my job to my passion. It has become part of my daily life. I work hard at everything I do and I don’t shy away from challenges. I love working with people to develop their ideas and turn them into something extraordinary.

 
Big Beak Can Set.jpg

Big Beak Brewing Company

The goal of this project was to create a coastal inspired branding system for Big Beak Brewing Co. I created a logo badge that has merged the imagery of a pelican and classic beer symbolism. I named all the beers after hazards you encounter on the coast. The packaging was kept simple and bright to compliment the coastal theme.

Miner Hot Sauce Self Promotion

I created this custom hot sauce packaging to mail out to potential clients. I use this as an introduction or a follow up to meeting someone I would like to work with. I really enjoyed thinking through and designing all the pieces of this promotional mailer.

Rocca Pizzeria

Rocca Pizzeria uses old-world cooking techniques to create wood fired Neapolitan pizza. They wanted a branding system that would set them apart from all the other local pizzerias. I stayed away from the classic red and blue color pallets and created a unique branding system inspired by European football club crests. (Work created at MESH)

Visit Baton Rouge

I worked, as the Art Director, on the 2018 Visit Baton Rouge Campaign. The campaign was inspired by old post cards. I art directed the photography and designed the print ads for the campaign. I also created simplified two-color illustrations of all the images, which were used in airports and digital ads.

In 2018 I worked with Visit Baton Rouge to rebrand their company and created the logo that appears in the ads for this campaign. (Work created at MESH)

Explore BR.jpg

Explore Baton Rouge

Explore Baton Rouge was a self-initiated project created to inspire a sense of pride into the Baton Rouge Community. I created a flag that was passed around the community. The receiver was asked to take a picture with the flag at their favorite location in Baton Rouge. Once they posted about their favorite spot on social media, they took one patch and passed the flag along to another person.

Procreate Halftone Brush Set - For the iPad Pro

I use texture in most of my work, so I decided to create a clean halftone brush set for Procreate. At the time there were a ton of textures made for the Adobe Suite, but iPad brush sets were lacking. I jumped on this trend early and released this product before Retro Supply Company started making Procreate brush sets. View it HERE.
