Snickers is an eleven-year-old Teacup Yorkshire Terrier. This little seven-pound guard dog is small enough to fit in your hand but loud enough to scare the mailman. Her cuteness and attitude go hand in hand, and if she doesn’t get her way, she’ll let you know. 

 

This professional lap warmer patrols at all time, staying on high-alert for treats. The blonde tuffet on her head is her crown, and you better believe she’s the tough ruler of the house and neighborhood, except when there’s thunder or chewing gum involved. 

 

She’s a man’s and a designer’s best friend.

Snickers' Story:

“Every great idea comes from a long walk.”

 

Step back and reexamine the problem, your best ideas will come naturally when you're not thinking about them, and make sure you make time for work, relaxation, play, and a long nap … followed by a treat or two. 

Snickers' Philosophy:

Snickers is the face of Nikolai Paquin Design Co., focusing on client management and outreach. She’s the one who keeps the work coming in — with those puppy eyes she’s been perfecting for the last 11 years. 

 

While she loves chasing squirrels and using her sniffer, getting great ideas from long walks is her favorite pastime. If you also believe every project should come with a treat, then she’s ready to hear your story and take a long nap after.

NIKOLAI PAQUIN

FLY GUY NIKOLAI    

As a visual storyteller with a focus in illustration and brand design, I’ve spent the last six years professionally crafting my skills, honing my style, and developing my eye. I believe everyone has a story to tell — that unfortunately, goes unspoken too often. 

 

I want to share stories that empower. Specifically, sharing your journey and process, no matter where that chapter leads you. 

My Philosophy:

A successful brand is three dimensional, consisting of your who, what, and why. Creating this powerful and distinctive foundation builds a strong brand driven by passion and inspiration.

 

Let’s soar to great heights.  

 

It’s my mission to dig deeper in your story while championing your authentic message. Together, we’ll design imagery that speaks “you.”

Nikolai’s Story:

I consider myself a student of the world, drawing inspiration from our rich history’s culture, folklore, and truths. I look at the moments that make us great and lead us to our downfall. Why? Because each narrative is painted like a vignette, telling life through pigments or lines on a page. 

 

I first realized this passion while studying design and art history at the College of Saint Rose in Albany, NY. Then, I’ve brought this love of telling and reading stories into my work with small business and larger brands, sharing their victories and passions through visual branding and illustration. 

 

When I’m not working, you can find me hiking, cooking, or … planning my next great adventure. And if I’ve gone missing, you should probably also look in a museum. All these interests continue to inspire and grow the work I create, as I truly enjoy crafting unique brands that stand out.
