N. McMillan, Designer/Educator

Hello and welcome.

Nicholas McMillan is a designer, artist, and educator from Newport News, Virginia.

As an educator, I have had the opportunity to teach in the respective graphic design departments at the Art Institute of Houston, Texas A&M University–Corpus Christi, and the University of Central Oklahoma. My four years at James Madison University prepared me for a graphic design career in the Washington DC Metropolitan area, and later, my studies at Savannah College of Art and Design introduced me to the importance of why we design and the evolution of design. 

I am continually in search of new opportunities where I can utilize my extensive knowledge of graphic design, gain perspective and help others understand the importance and power of graphic design. 

You may contact me via email and follow me on Instagram.

Nicholas has tremendous insight and experience when it comes to graphic design and thoroughly shares with his students. He encourages his students to work beyond what they are capable of and pushes their limits to achieve great things and develop amazing work. He is very understanding and open-minded. He approaches each situation as a fresh opportunity for something greater. Nicholas is a wonderful professor and individual to work with.

Nicholas has a strong sense for design layout and composition. He is meticulous and pushes himself to excel at everything he does. He engaged in active discussion and provided feedback that was encouraging and critical at the same time. Nicholas’ penchant for writing and interest in diverse cultures gave birth to an extremely relevant thesis study and will lead the education system to a more relevant method of teaching international audiences. I would strongly recommend Nicholas as a design teacher or a designer, as he would prove to be a skilled member within any organization.
