“Nikki Rodriguez‭... ‬has a special focus on graphic design‭, ‬digital art‭, ‬and typography‭. ‬Most of the projects in her portfolio reveal her inspiration that generates from a profound sense of wonderment‭. ‬Mostly‭, ‬she is playing with the elements of space‭, ‬astrology‭, ‬and the negative vs‭. ‬positive that indicates an explorative mind‭.‬”
