Joe Nicklo was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1982. He’s been creating art in one form or another ever since he could hold a pencil. His fascination with art and technology was ignited by the purchase of his first family computer, an Amiga 1000, where he had his first experience with “art on the computer.” Thus the pencil was supplemented with a mouse, as Joe spent hours making drawings in Deluxe Paint, completely oblivious to what “Graphic Design” was at the time. With every mouse click he was laying the foundation for what would eventually become his career.

As an Art Director & Visual Designer in South Florida, Joe has over 15 years of professional industry experience and has worked on a wide variety of projects. His specialties include Corporate Identity, Creative Retouching and Image Compositing, UX/UI Design, Style Frames, Storyboarding and Motion Graphics. He’s worked with clients ranging from startups like 3N2 Sports to established brands like Alienware.

It’s a combination of talents that makes Joe such a versatile and creative person to work with. Even as the technology and the mediums continue to change, Joe firmly believes that one of his strongest skills lies in making things “look amazing.”

Today, Joe is focusing on sharpening his Motion Graphics, VFX and 3D skills while balancing client work. Other interests include hitting the ice for a game of hockey or clicking away in a game of Diablo 3. When he’s not in the office, Joe can be found spending time with his amazing and understanding wife, adorable newborn son and two crazy dogs. Read Less
