Nicole A Yang

I'm Nicole!

I’m a designer. That means I’m a problem-solver/holistic medicine doctor for your brand visuals. If I were a superhero, I would fight off bad guys who sell pre-made logos and design for the sake of making things look pretty. I’d karate chop their files and give their design philosophy a nice roundhouse kick. Actually, part of me does believe I'm a tiny bit of a superhero because I truly believe that my passion for good design comes from a desire to improve people's lives and make the world better. And isn't that what superheroes do?

I have a degree in journalism (so I sometimes pretend I’m a very important character from The Newsroom or Good Girls Revolt), and you might know me from my seven years at Southern Weddings and Cultivate What Matters. These days, I use my expertise in product, digital, and print design to help small businesses grow with as few design pain points as possible.

I live in Raleigh, North Carolina with my boyfriend and our dog, Rudy. In my free time, I like to eat pizza and forget to go to my kickboxing class.

Enneagram 5



I'd be a persimmon. Takes forever to ripen, vibrant once ready, surprisingly crunchy, still sweet.



I've been able to reach my ideal client easily, which is something I struggled with in the past.

"Nicole helped me rebrand my wedding photography business with a new logo, style guide, and graphics. The most rewarding part was the process of developing my brand, something that is so hard to do solo. Nicole was thorough with her questions and research, and was great with communication during the proposal stages. The final product made my website and marketing consistent and strong. I've been able to reach my ideal client easily, which is something I struggled with in the past. She has been a huge help in defining what's important to my business!"
