The thing I want most is to inspire others to create. Freely and fearlessly.

I’m Nina and I’m a nerdy & paper-loving graphic designer and mother. I live in a small apartment with my big little loves – Ada and Anders – and my boyfriend Steffen in a small apartment in the harbor town Nyborg in Denmark.

I always loved office supplies. Some of my best memories as a kid was playing school with my sister, making books and crosswords and finally finding my calling as a graphic designer years later.

I love a good system – not because I enjoy being boxed in or limited but because this messy lady right here needs some structure in her life or everything would just fall to pieces around me while I happily paint and knit my life away. Haha! That’s why I try to tame my inner hedonist with beautiful planners.

Here’s why I do what I do:

  • Because story telling and paper play can be an amazing catalyst for change when you need it most.
  • Because living life with your eyes wide open, with gratitude and goals, and choosing your own path is the most important thing.
  • Because art is for everyone. So let’s make some cool things.

Love, Nina
