Nick Graham is a Director and content creator in NYC.

 

As commercial artists, our job is to recognize the intangible feelings in people, articulate them, bring them into focus, and say, "You are not alone."

The human experience is universal; there's no high-culture or low-culture; there is simply culture. My work informs and pushes whatever aspect of culture I’m provided. What I do is constantly evolving, and whether I’m working independently, collaborating with an agency, or leading a team, the things I make embody my values, beliefs, and ambitions - as all great work should.

I’m excited by ideas, transgression, and wild visionaries, but I take a refined approach in execution. My process is organic to the needs of each project, and while circumstances will change, a strong concept will always provide a context for decisions.


I KNOW HOW TO DO EVERYTHING, AND I KNOW EVERYTHING.
