About Us

We’re Paloma and Michael and we’re glad you stopped by Nightly Bats.

(We’ll get to that name in a second.)

In the simplest terms, Paloma designs and Michael animates. We genuinely enjoy collaborating with our clients to solve design-driven problems. We know that takes more than adding a little “flair” so we apply strategy and purpose — along with a right-sized touch of weirdness — to translate key brand messages into compelling visual stories. Between the two of us, we’ve had opportunities to design and animate for restaurants and small businesses throughout the Southeast. We live, work, and always represent for ATL.

Logo update for @okujaxbeach completed last year. There are now seven O-Ku locations throughout the Southeast, each with a slightly different take on the brand. For Jacksonville Beach, we decided to soften the logo to give it that windswept, wavy feeling.

Now about that name…

On our first visit to Austin, TX we noticed one of the city’s must-see tourist activities was listed as “nightly bats.” Every evening bats fly out from under Congress Bridge and it’s pretty spectacular.

“Nightly bats” later became our shorthand way to refer to that period of time right before you go to bed, when even though you’re exhausted, you get a burst of creative energy that makes you a little wild. We named the business for that simple term that refers to something exceptional.
