Plazm is a creative studio founded in Portland, Ore., in 1991 with the launch of Plazm magazine. Together with our clients, we solve problems, tell stories, and seek out truth.

In 2019 Plazm was nominated for the Cooper Hewitt National Design Award.

Plazm magazine started as a cooperatively published, not-for-profit periodical that sparked a nascent creative community in early 1990s Portland. As the magazine garnered accolades and awards, it spawned a commercial design and branding firm whose clients have included Nike, LucasFilm, and MTV, along with local businesses and nonprofits such as PICA, the Northwest Film Center, and Fort George Brewery.

Plazm Design co-founder Niko Courtelis moved back to Portland from New York City a few years ago. He and Joshua Berger have relaunched the studio with some of their long-term collaborators in fields such as font design, editorial content, and public policy. Niko and Josh launched The Portland Stamp Company in 2016. Plazm magazine is now published by PICA (Portland Institute for Contemporary Art) a 501c3 nonprofit, under Josh’s leadership as founding Art Director.

Quick!HitRecord – Filmmaking and Videography Service

By QuickHitRecord / August 1, 2015

My cinematography and video work has been described as "serious", "precise", and "authentic". I routinely work with seasoned video producers, marketing and communications departments, and first-time filmmakers to help them tell their stories. I am fully insured and ready to help you capture a great-looking video that will keep your audience engaged.

As of May 2020, I am fully vaccinated against Covid-19. I continue to mask during indoor shoots as an extra precaution and I have invested in a wireless monitoring system to accommodate social distancing. I also offer streaming for clients who wish to monitor or direct from off-site locations. My goal is to help you execute a safe and productive shoot.

I work with many skilled crew members in and around the Pacific Northwest, and am happy to help you assemble a crew for your shoot. Please take a look at my reel, and don't hesitate to reach out if you think that I might be a good fit for your project.

Some kind words from my clients:

“Nick somehow manages to be intensely focused on a project, and at the same time, remains his easy-going, affable self. He is very aware of when he needs to get a shot quickly, and when it's important to pause and consider. He's a great idea-person, a trusted collaborator, and a great sounding board.”
- Rich Herstek, Writer & Director

"Nick nailed the concept from the start. The lighting set made my (awesome) clients look great and his calm nature set them at ease during interviews. The pure magic, though, was converting an hour's worth of raw material into a fast-paced story arc. Each idea he added brought new value to the finished product. I'm delighted with the end result!”
- Kira Higgs, Small Business Owner

“I've worked with Nick for years (since 2012). He has always been a top-notch video professional. Well-lit interviews, creative angles, thoughtfully edited pieces, and a knack for finding 'the shot'.”
- Joe Knapp, Video Producer & Director

“Nick is thoughtful, well organized, and quick to adjust to changes. The short film he produced and shot for me has been an invaluable marketing tool for my small business.”
- Bonnie Hildebrand, Small Business Owner
