Art Director | Web & Social Content Director | Photographer
Hey, I'm Nick Carranza, I run this little company called Planet Speck. A Los Angeles native, who stumbled into a career as an art director, photographer and digital marketing jack-of-all-trades. Growing up I wanted to be a pro baseball player, good thing I had a great high school "computer teacher" who exposed me to a little program called Photoshop, it changed my life.
Over the past decade, I've been fortunate to have had many creative experiences, both in-house and freelance. I've designed billboards with placements in Time Square, photographed some of the most well known music acts in the world, founded and sold an eco-conscious printing start up, produced web and social media content for two Emmy nominated TV shows and have lead social strategies for three non-profit (two national) organizations. Collectively, my skill sets and experiences have helped me become a digital marketing jack-of-all-trades.
Currently I freelance as a web and social content director, art director and special events photographer. I work full time at Children's Hospital Los Angeles in web and social content marketing. Utilizing my skill sets in the cause marketing world is what I was born to do. I enjoy it every day and am happy to hang my hat there full time. Enough about me, let's talk about you. Take a second to say "hello."
