First, thank you for taking an interest. I am Nicholas Schick a freelancer specializing in re-branding, marketing/advertising, and design. I focus on what is possible through the web, giving control back to my clients.
The experiences I had in the corporate world not only shaped my technological philosophy but also allowed for this philosophy to be "practically applied". In turn, this experience improved my understanding of the relationship between technology and sales, marketing, advertising, etc.
The most important finding is that poor branding efforts and simple operational issues can plague any firm, regardless of their industry. Correcting these issues can open new opportunities for any firm, company, and/or organization.
I would consider myself a powerful advocate for branding within every organization. Some of my notable accomplishments would be the creation of luxuryeurolighting in late 2011, the re-development of sites for Nutritionwod, and the green-field development of Deuschl-Omnibus; which also included a strategic marketing plan that played heavily into their new brand launch.
Some of my personal interests are contributing to many web-based open-source solutions and working with a few not-for-profit organizations in the areas of brand development and web design.
