about me

Hello! I’m Nicole Ellis, the owner and visual brand designer behind Sweet Southern Pixels!

Originally a Cali girl, I quickly adapted to living in a southern world, and I have called Texas home for over 14 years now. I spent four of those years at Texas Christian University (Go Frogs!) where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Advertising and Public Relations. I also hold a second degree in Web Design.

I launched Sweet Southern Pixels in 2015 to work with like-minded, stylish female entrepreneurs who crave beautiful brands that reflect their businesses.

When I’m not designing, I love spending time with my boys (husband, Cliff, and little ones, Truett (2) and Parker (4 months) and our spunky Yorkie, Stella, shopping till I literally drop, hitting up a good karaoke bar and trying new, fancy restaurants!

things i love

  • A beautiful, feminine handbag—I’m a Tory Burch and Kate Spade kind of girl.
  • MEXICAN FOOD! I’m super picky and will harshly judge a Mexican food restaurant by the quality of their salsa and queso!
  • My iPhone…I’m never without it.
  • A good glass of champagne. Give me a glass of Veuve and I’m a happy girl.
  • Pretty paper, fancy type and shiny metallics to make my heart happy.
  • Adding a little pink to everything!

sweet southern pixels is a fort worth-based branding studio dedicated to helping female entrepreneurs craft brand identities that are polished, cohesive and above all else—powerful.
