About me


Hi, I'm Nick Niles, a senior product designer with over 20 years of experience in digital product design and development, UX/UI, design strategy, and education. I've spent a career honing my creative and strategic thinking to deliver exceptional user experiences across diverse industries.

With a strong background in interactive prototyping, branding, and Agile methodology, my expertise encompasses web and mobile design, data visualization, animation, and 3D graphics. I've collaborated with prestigious institutions like ETH Zürich and Lucerne University of Applied Sciences & Arts, where I've led design initiatives, mentored students, and made significant impacts in shaping online ecosystems. For the fourth year running, I'll be hosting the Front Conference Zürich this summer, inviting to the stage some of the web design industry's leading thinkers.

My extensive experience as a senior product designer and consultant includes working with Axpo, Zurich Insurance, Swiss Airlines and Credit Suisse. I have facilitated innovation workshops, planned and conducted user research, and produced engaging multimedia content. My sensitivity to team needs and ability to align stakeholders have led to increased collaboration speed and overall satisfaction.

With 13 years of experience in Switzerland under my belt, I'm thrilled to channel my enthusiasm for digital products, design strategy, and education into senior product designer opportunities within North American time zones. I'm eager to bring my versatile skill set and expertise to bear on a vibrant team venturing into the realm of innovative interactive experiences.


Nick was just super to work with. Prompt, creative, and he really listens to the needs I had for my film festival website. Every time someone interacts with our festival I get a compliment about the website Nick built. Would certainly recommend him again.
