I am Nicole Reher (pronounced rare) —

a midwest creative who is passionate about unique signage, event design, and decorating. My interest in sign-making goes back to my middle school days, where I first helped my father around his sign shop in the small town of Nebraska City, Nebraska. I continued this learned passion during my college years — working as a graphic designer for a family-owned sign company in Omaha, Nebraska. Eventually I took the leap to full-time freelance in 2022, and Nicole Reher Creative was born.


With over 7 years experience in the professional sign-making world, I have the resources, knowledge, and skill to make your event dreams a reality. My professional education includes an Associate’s Degree in Graphic Design from Metropolitan Community College (2015) and a Bachelor’s Degree in Studio Art from the University of Nebraska - Omaha (2018). During this time, I was actively involved as Vice-President of the student led Commonwealth Art Gallery, and also the graphic designer of the UNO Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Club.

To this day, you could say my style has reflected my nostalgia and inspiration of the past. One of my favorite places to find design inspiration is by exploring antique stores in small, midwestern towns. My home is filled with different finds like books, furniture, and various knick-knacks of years past to keep me inspired. When I’m not designing, I love exploring backroads and small towns with a camera in hand. I enjoy the occasional glass of whiskey, gardening, and taking care of my five backyard chickens.
