Innovator. Dreamer. Animal advocate. Avocado lover. Resume writer. Graphic designer. Web designer.
Nicole Steen of Nico Creative Co, wears many hats but there is one unifying characteristic— she puts her whole heart into everything she does (yes, even spending 15 minutes picking out the perfectly ripe avocado). Instead of playing WWF wrestling and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with her older brother and younger sister in elementary school, she sat in the corner writing fictional short stories in cursive with accompanying illustrations. By age 7, she was designing calendars with different illustrations and seasonal-appropriate decorative fonts for every month. But as she was growing up, academics always came first. She continued to dabble in art through school (drawing class here, sculpture class there), but it was always ON THE SIDE. After graduating from Syracuse University with a degree in psychology, she moved back home to Boston to figure out her next step. She wanted to be an organizational psychologist so applied to a graduate school program in California (where she had wanted to live since I was 11). She spent two years at Claremont Graduate University rigorously studying and earning her Masters degree in business psychology.
Equipped with the knowledge and experience to make it in the corporate world, as a life-long designer who just wanted to create, she quickly realized that path wasn’t for her. In 2012, Nicole started her first online business, Resume By Nico, writing and designing graphic resumes for clients around the country. Fueled by enthusiasm for helping others realize their potential, she started Nico Creative Co, an affordable web and graphic design company for small businesses and entrepreneurs. She is skilled in custom web design, web re-design, logo design and branding, business card design, eBook design, social media graphics, infographics, email campaigns, brochures, and more.
Nicole is dedicated to helping local entrepreneurs realize their dreams, start their own businesses, and deliver high-quality visual products to help attract their ideal clients.
