Speaker Nicola Hamilton RGD


Art Director & Graphic Designer at Studio Wyse


Nicola Hamilton RGD is a Toronto-based art director and graphic designer, whose work has been internationally recognized by the D&AD, the Society of Publication Designers, the Society for News Design and the Canadian National Magazine Awards. Nicola is also an artist—a title she’s still uncomfortable wearing. She is one-half of The Scaries, a personal project she embarked on with illustrator LeeAndra Cianci. The Scaries is a safe space for the artists to explore their fear of failure, together. The project focuses on the act of making work and the emotional turmoil the process inflicts upon us.

Self-doubt is an inevitable part of the process and a creative’s worst enemy
