Nikolaus Schmidt studied Graphic Design at the London College of Printing, where he graduated with first-class honours.
Upon completion of his education he took on employment at the Education Congress Research Gmbh, a company dedicated to organising and equipping medical congresses, amongst them the European Congress of Radiology, one of the largest medical meetings in Europe with no more than 16,000 participants.
Part of the job was the restructuring and management of the in-house graphic department. With the help of three full-time employees he coordinated all visual communication-related matter and was responsible for a total of twelve medical societies, all of them organising meetings and courses in the field of imaging.
After two successful years he founded Nikolaus Schmidt Design. His work is based on extensive, analytical research and engaged dialogue with his clients to arrive at unique customised concepts. He is working in a wide range of media, from brand identity and editorial design, to web and screen design as well as architectural and environmental design.
