Who: Nic Coffman
Where: Portland, Oregon, USA
What inspires you? Art is my main source of inspiration. I will always be attracted to beautiful design; typography, illustration, shape, form… but the sweet spot is to mix and blur the lines between them. Bringing a “feeling” into a design is what makes projects interesting and creates an end product that stands out from the mediocre commercial world.
Why do you do what you do? I just love the work. Taking my own, or someone else’s ideas and turning them from a lightbulb moment into the physical world is something special that really only creators get to experience.
Tell us a little bit about the work process when creating the #MadeOnFiverr we featured on Fiverr Discover: The process always starts with lots of discussions. Just good old fashion talking can go a long way to finding out not just what the client needs, but what their ideal customers needs. Then it’s onto ideation and sketching until we find the right path to start down. From there it is just a matter of finding out what fits where and the clearest most aesthetic way to present everything.
Describe your style in a word: Contemporary.
What are your Fiverr goals?
My goals are pretty simple, I just want to meet cool people with great ideas and work with them to make something outside the rut of commercial design, something with character and heart that feels fresh but lived in at the same time.
