Nikki Di Franco
Producer, Art Buyer, Operations, Project Manager
In a Nut Shell
If you ask Nikki what she does… “I am the steward of the creative idea. It’s my job to bring it to life.”
Nikki has the unique experience of doing integrated production before there ever was such a thing. She began at a small agency in San Francisco responsible for art and print buying. When the agency grew, so did the production needs, and she quickly found herself responsible for broadcast and business affairs. As time went on at different agencies, vendors and clients across the US and Canada, it wasn’t just about photographs, ink on paper and TV screens. She has also produced for the web, created a pop-up store in NY City, fabricated trade shows, curated music for a mobile app, did a 3D mapping installation before the equipment was in the US, sampled hot food items on the streets, conducted and directed a 24-hour, live, web-streaming demonstration…while managing a stable of producers and running internal operations.
Not much shakes her. Don’t be afraid to ask her for something outlandish. It’s likely she already knows how to get it done.
She is the owner of CityBorder LLC, a fully insured company that allows clients and agencies flexibility for small motion, still productions and talent needs.
