About nikku

Nikku is the design and illustration studio of Nicole Eckenrode. Nicole lives in Seattle with her husband, son, and two kitties and works as a designer and illustrator. She attributes her love for art and design to her very artistic upbringing in Ohio. Building elaborate snow forts in the winters, and hours spent drawing on paper grocery bags in her grandma's kitchen, are some of her fondest memories. She is so happy to share her designs with you and be a part of the minted community.

Hi Nicole, thank you for the encouragement on my calendar design. I'm fairly new to the design world, so I appreciate it a lot!
