NICHOLE HEADER

Nichole Graf

Creative Director // Head of Product Development

Nichole Graf’s primary experience lies in fashion and accessories. She has worked as a designer, illustrator, fine-artist, art director, and stylist. Before moving westward, she had been employed by J.Crew, building and cultivating their Madewell brand in New York City. In this role she designed both product and brand, often traveling to filter inspiration from around the world into cohesive and engaging on-brand communication. She has worked to cultivate a process regarding visual design, content strategy, and information architecture that is both thoughtful in approach and adroit in execution. Her experiences in design, combined with a deep interest in nutrition, alternative medicines, herbalism, and wildcraft, led her to the creation of Raven and our product offerings. Her continued education of the natural world, specifically wildcrafting and medicine making, and constant pursuit of inspiration, ensure that we continue to  find clever paths to evolve and create.
