M1.1 Showcase

 I am Nicky. I wasn’t always Nicky, it took me some time to get here. Lives are journeys and for the past ten years my journey has been one of a design student. My Bachelor education was exploratory, I’ve learned about some great design travel destinations, I even visited a few; I learned a lot about who I am as a designer. The past years in between my education was a trip of conquering, it took me over a mountain, where I have learned a lot about who I am as a person. It is time to combine the two and see where the next trip takes me.

 

I know that I have a stronger appreciation for spatial compositions of shapes and colors. I like the transformative qualities of fashion; how wearing something on the outside influences how you feel on the inside. Instead of a reflection of how you are feeling, it can become a tool to make you feel a certain way. Listen to invigorating music and you start to feel energized. There is a quality in there how projecting what you want to feel like will help you reach this feeling.

I like a good cup of coffee and the way it can change the pace of life like a rollercoaster rolling uphill and slowing down for the next dip.

 

I love to create in all shapes and sizes; making digital and physical drawings, or in the shape of music. The most important lesson I have learned is that if I feel challenged, I can go great lengths in my dedication to a piece of work. I can give myself these challenges by keeping on pushing myself and stepping out of my comfort zone. Comfortable is safe, but it doesn’t hit home emotionally, and I want my designs tot truly stem from a place where I feel passionate about them.
