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. Since its commencement at the end of 2013, Co-Ed has realized roughly fifteen titles.

In May of 2016, I joined Karma as a designer. Since the fall of 2015, I’ve taught second-year typography as an adjunct instructor at Parsons School of Design. From 2013 through 2016, I worked with Alex Lin at Studio Lin. Earlier, I interned at Other Means and, prior to that, studied graphic design and art history at Pratt Institute.
