who we are

In 2006 an idea was born; an idea that there could be a design studio that communicated effectively across multiple mediums whilst keeping things simple for clients; an idea that this studio could focus on ideas that led to meaningful design solutions; an idea that this studio could operate sustainably, creating solutions for clients that we could all feel good about; an idea of a studio that had geniune passion for design. In 2007 this idea came to life, and Niki Wallace Design opened for business.

For the past 10 years NWD has designed solutions for clients spanning both web and print media. Our focus on ideas helps us create informed solutions with strategic direction and a creative approach.

Niki Wallace, Boss Lady

Over the past 15 years Niki has worked in design for both web and print media, with a range of clients spanning large corporate organisations through to the little guys that need a bit of extra help! Niki’s expertise in ideas and branding guides the strategic direction for your project, while her background in art, design and writing ensures a creative end-outcome.

A research interest in sustainable design has led her to work with many clients with an environmental and/or social issues focus, and in turn she has developed this same sustainable focus within her own business model. In 2015 she commenced a board position with Global Communities for Peace, working on global peace projects and the GCP AIRtime (Artists and Authors in Residence) Program. Niki is currently doing a PhD in sustainable graphic design through UniSA which she hopes to finish before the end of times.

Niki also teaches graphic design and web design, and is a tutor in foundation studio at UniSA, focussing on creative idea generation and diverse executions. Her students think she’s alright too, they even nominated (and awarded) her for a teaching award in 2015!

Brett Hosking, Ideas Trampoline

Brett’s eye for detail and creative approach make him an incredibly valuable ideas trampoline! Boasting 12 years experience in illustration, his linework has been the start point for many successful design solutions.

All our best ideas have been bounced off Brett and we reckon that’s part of what makes them so special!


Ripley and Meadow, Cheer Squad 

Both equipped with their own unique skill set, the hounds will listen to all potential ideas without casting judgement. They mostly like to run around singing the song of their people but will also request occasional treats and kisses. Their contribution is questionable at times, but they definitely keep us all entertained.
