Nika is a multi-disciplinary graphic designer and educator based in New York. She is currently a partner at Labud, a design and development studio she co-founded in 2018. She teaches interaction design at Parsons School of Design as well as Rutgers Mason Gross School of the Arts.
Nika’s aesthetic approach frequently explores the relationship between humans and technology. She is interested in highlighting unexpected organic moments that reveal our most primal interests. Additionally, she’s interested in the evolution of trends and explores the intersection between timelessness and timeliness. Professionally, her work aims to develop strong, graphic identities that stand out on a variety of digital platforms and help capture the spirit of her collaborators.
