Nicole Gets the Shot

Behind the Lens with Our Versatile Creative

One part designer, one part photographer, all Nicole Peaslee. 

When she's not building brands through visual identity, Nicole can be found honing her skills via design projects big and small. Nicole holds a BFA from UW-Milwaukee and a degree from Madison College, where she studied graphic design and website design. As a Cricketeer, she has helped launch a new brand for Community Action Coalition, spearheaded photoshoots for dozens of clients and managed the design and layout of the monthly food magazine Edible Madison.

Ask Nicole about her passions and she’s quick to mention the local group New Fashioned Sobriety (@newfashionedsobriety), which she co-founded. They host monthly meetups that create an alcohol-free community among Wisconsinites. Nicole’s also a cat mom to two fur babies (Atticus and Zoey), a Wisconsin state park savant (30/66) and an artist in her own right.
