Below are the main areas of visual communication / Branding that I specialize in. If you require something not listed, no worries! Reach out anyway I have designers, artists, and technician collaborators in my roster. Or I could simply direct you to somone more suitable.

Graphic Design & Branding

A brand is not just a logo. It’s the entire personality of your company and or project. I take you through the process of a questionnaire, research, and concept development in order to unearth the identity of your business to find your definite voice. I’m taught and skilled in: logos, invitations, brochures, programs, flyers, poster design, catalogs, magazine layout, book cover design and more.

Creative Photography_____

My photography sometimes feels like a separate entity so I gave it it’s own home, here. My main focus is commercial, conceptual, and unique portrait photography. In particular I photograph products, artists, stories, spaces and have professional experience with them all.

Photo-Editing & Retouching

My retouching skills have many levels. From basic editing to high-end retouching to photo manipulation. I can bring an old family photo to life, make photos your uncle took of your birthday look professional, or manipulate something magical or surreal in scene. I’m happy to say photo manipulation work has won a few awards and article features!

    About Nye’ Lyn Tho

    A Few Random Facts
    – My favorite food is shrimp dim sum & pretty much anything from Sweet Fingers …my…goodness

    I was born and raised in New York, taught and critiqued in Philadelphia, inspired and disciplined where I currently reside, California. I specialize in Graphic Design, Photography, and a unique merge of the two. In particular my skills include Branding : logo design & stylized photography. I am also skilled in Advertisement / Promotionals : event and movie posters, book covers, album covers, food (promotion), and product (advertising).

    The best part of what I do is unearthing design needs and challenges. Finding the heart and soul of a brand or any representation of a company, idea, or person is my passion. It requires a commitment, a trip into a deep and fragile part of why one believes they exist. Visually unearthing your calling is my drive and I do it with spirited diligence.

    I've hired Nye twice as a photographer. She took pictures of my whole team that we use on our website and in all of our proposals. Being a personality business, as a training and coaching company, it's crucial that our pictures reflect the personalities and high quality of our team members. She did an amazing job...

    ...I contacted Nye to let her know that I needed her services & she quickly responded with a questionnaire with some pretty in depth questions about my brand, thoughts, desires, & expectations concerning my logo.  This in & of it itself impressed me because I knew right away that she understood the importance of branding....

    I was fortunate to work with Nye on the Green Bag website redesign and logo update projects. She is a great collaborator, pleasant and easy to work with and one of the fastest designers I have ever worked with. Nye adds value to her work with quality technical design skills, a willingness to learn beyond her field and presenting a fresh perspective.

    Kaliisa Conlon, Director

    I had the tremendous pleasure of working with Nye'  in San Francisco and I was continually amazed by her amazing vision, skill and utter dedication. Not only is Nye' a phenomenal talent, she is one of the most cool, wonderful people I have worked with. Nye' is an amazing communicator ~ she really listens to the ideas her clients and colleagues have in mind and creates awesome results from them.

    Judith Masur , Fine Artist

    I enjoyed working with Nye. She was both collaborative and responsive. Beginning with her beautiful first draft, we worked together to come up with a great solution to the challenge of advertising two simultaneous shows by one artist. Most important, I enjoyed giving out the cards. Everyone was drawn to the design.

    Eoin Franklin , Managing Director of The Dog Dunit Ltd.

    I thought I was happy with how my company logo was developing until Nye helped me along with bringing my logo and company aspirations to the next level. She listened to my core company values and developed my new logo, listening to my ideals, as opposed to redirecting them

On top of being a shining talent, Nye' is a great person, (the kind of person you actually enjoy collaborating with while working on grueling projects) and I'm honored to call her a colleague and a friend.
