Hi everyone,

My name is Nico, and unlike most people contributing so far, I don't have a
long illustrious career in development or coding. I'm a college student in
the north of Holland, and my skill set is basically limited to design and
SEO. I mostly do consultancy around school. I love wordpress and I set up
every client with it because it works so well every time.

I just figured I could add a bit in the design area of the UI of wordpress.

Anyways, my incomplete portfolio is here: www.nicolicious.com. Recent work
isn't included sadly, because I have some projects under development.

But, nice to see everyone, hope I can help somehow along the way.

All the best,
