My Name is Nick Simmons
Working as a freelancer I have had the luxury of learning through a great variety of roles, projects and responsibilities in my career. From my start in packaging creating 3D displays and print manufacturing to my modern days designing for global digital, social and retail advertising campaigns. I have done everything from managing a design team to art directing, design strategy and branding, shoot preparation, and designing for digital, social and ecommerce. Work that is engaging allows to grow and develop in a field that is always challenging but rewarding has been the passion behind my career.
Reebok has been my home for 8 years
My long tenure with the brand has led me to my current role as the Studio Production Manager here at Reebok. I currently manage a team of designers to plan and execute the seasons global marketing tools for delivery. I help create and oversee the retail displays, social media and on-site digital tools that we deliver to markets. I also create design guidelines for production and capturing photography, while shooting and maintaining the equipment and space in our photo studio.
I have also fulfilled a number of different design & art direction roles needed at Reebok including the development of our brand strategy and look through our digital and social campaigns, also the photography and design with our partnerships and Reebok's Wholesalers and affiliates (eg., Dick's Sporting Goods, Finish Line). Because of these roles I am highly proficient in digital, social and layout design, photo retouching and displays at retail.
