Number 3

London, GB
Joined Jun 2016

I am Paul Nicholson, a London-based creative with 20 years of experience in the music, art and fashion.

With a broad range of skills and experience, I have worked on freelance projects as well as having founded and ran two successful ventures; a specialist design/print company, Prototype 21 and the fashion brand, Terratag.

In 2015, I launched Number 3, a creative consultancy with a focus on Logo design, brand identity, and graphic art.

With self-conviction, my objective is to create a forward-looking and, progressive graphic style, creating timeless work that challenges the current retro-obsession.
I work with a signature style; inventive, bold graphics with a dynamic sense of colour that is a hybrid and distortion of east and west pop culture, techno-fetishism, sci-fi, and futurism. With an expansive skill set, I produce to the highest standard hand-crafted artwork, clean vectors and perfect pixels.

Music, fashion and corporate clients that I have worked for include: Addict, Aphex Twin, Andrew Weatherall, ARRI Media, ASOS, Bleep, Brompton, Buffs, Channel 4, Converse, Dickies, Expedia, Fred Perry, Ghost in the Shell, Global Communication, Harvey Nichols, Howies, Innocent Drinks, Internal Records, Marc Acradipane, Ministry of Sound, Orbital, Planet Mu, PXL, Rapha, Rugby World Cup, Sony, Tom Middleton, Wagamama, and Warp.
