My name is Nick Hempsey, © 1983, I am a Christ follower. I have a beautiful and talented wife named Whitney, four fantastic and creative boys, Mason, Daiden, Elijah, and Ezra. I’m a designer, developer, drummer and dreamer.
I grew up in the sign industry. My step-father owned a sign company called “Signs and More…” in Deptford, NJ. I would play on his computer, learning programs like Flexi and SignMate, so I could make decals of my band’s logos to put on my bass drum and hand out to my friends. I got fairly proficient in the software and thought that graphic design might be a fun career path.
In 2005, I moved to South Carolina and went to work as a designer at a local sign shop in North Myrtle Beach. This is where I really started honing my skills as a designer. I learned some new software, Photoshop and Illustrator.
In 2007, I came on board as full-time staffer at Barefoot Church where I started my web development career. I designed series graphics and built small web apps for message series. I even dabbled in motion graphics and video production.
In 2010 – now, I own my own business, Studio412 Design, where I specialize in WordPress theme design and deveIopment. I’ve been selected as a featured developer for the Genesis Framework. And I build custom masterpieces for businesses with WordPress.
