My name is Nick Conflitti and I graduated from Ferris State University in 2010 with a Bachelors degree in Graphic Design and a background in marketing. I currently work for re:group, a full service branding and communications company based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. While working for re:group I have worked on a handful of projects ranging from website development to brand identity development.
Outside of re:group, I work as a freelance designer in brand identity design, advertising, integrated branding campaigns, and web design. Contact me if you have a project, I’d love to hear from you.
