N. Weltyk

My name is Nicholas. I live in New York City and work independently on commissions for graphic design. Under the name, Cooperative Editions, I also offer friends, authors, and artists assistance in publishing. Lastly, since 2015, I work as an adjunct instructor teaching typography and design at The New School.

Previously, between May 2016 and August 2017, I worked with Karma. From 2013 to 2016, I joined Alex Lin at Studio Lin. Earlier, I interned at Other Means and, prior to that, studied graphic design and art history at Pratt Institute.

Dakin Hart and I designed two sibling books for “The Sculpture of Gonzalo Fonseca,” a retrospective exhibition at The Noguchi Museum. “In pictures he took and commissioned, [book one, ‘Gonzalo Fonseca: Four Sculptures,’] synthesizes and inhabits Fonseca’s perspective as he zeroes in on four archetypal pieces in Roman travertine.”

“[Book two, ‘Gonzalo Fonseca: At Scale,’] contains a series of doorways to the artist’s mind. Through repetition and variation it explores his understanding of the mutability of scale.”

I designed and printed a map and index for Natalia Panzer’s “Found Coins,” exhibited in “17SEP17SUN” at Niceshop Su in Osaka. The free pamphlet’s design directly correlates with the layout of Natalia’s coin binder on view. The metallic gold ink came out really nice.
