Hey, I'm Nicol – an XR product designer, graphic designer, and fashion designer. My art journey began in Poland, where I explored various forms of expression before graduating from the School of Artistic Fashion Design SAPU in Krakow. My clothing collection "SLÓNSK" received recognition, and I started my design career at Gena in Nowy Targ.

After a brief break, I followed my calling and pursued Graphic Design at Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam. Here, I co-founded Studio Comrades with Edith Dingemans, crafting immersive narratives that merge 2D and 3D dimensions to spark meaningful conversations. Our projects highlight contemporary and social themes, engaging diverse audiences.

Collaborating on compelling art projects like "WW2" with support from Droom en Daad and the City Archives of Rotterdam, and our graduation project, "gURL," acclaimed by the Student XR Awards, has been rewarding. We've taken on exciting commercial ventures, providing AR lenses for events like Duikboot festival and Dutch Comic Con.

XR is my greatest passion, motivating me to sharpen my skills. Pursuing expertise in UX design and working towards my Google UX certification, I'm eager to enhance user experiences and apply design thinking.

Beyond creativity, I cherish being a dog mom to Dudusek, exploring nature and drawing inspiration from the beauty of sunsets.
