I am an industrial and visual communications designer. I also have experience in design research, UI/UX design and physical computing. Plainsboro, New Jersey is my current home, about an hour from NYC or Philly. Please view my work on my website: www.WilliamNickley.com After two years of contract work with four respected design firms, I have finally joined a creative team, full-time, at ZOKU in Hoboken, NJ. My spare time is filled with geocaching, cloud-spotting, all forms of frisbee, physical hacking, anything with cheese on it, typography, boomerang, sketch-noting, rallying in my MR2, biking, almost all games, science, info-graphics, gadgets and pie.
