Nick originates from London where he studied Visual Communication at Ravensbourne College of Design and Communication. After working as a designer for The Independent, he moved to Berlin in 1989. He lived in Berlin for 19 years and founded SV Associates, where he evolved his area of practice from visual communication to experience design with a strongly human centered focus. In 2009 he moved to Wellington, New Zealand to be Senior Lecturer in Design at Massey University. He currently works within two distinct yet related areas of design practice: visual communication design within spatial environments, and the use of spatial environments to enhance and affect users’ experiences within them.
