Nicole Steinmetz / Owner & Founder
Department: Web Design, Photography, Textile design, Graphic design
What you love about you do? I love everything about what I do, I'm living my dream. Design is my passion, it's what makes me happy and it's what drives me to get out of bed every morning. It gives me purpose through knowing that what I create can encourage others to chase their dreams, seek happiness and explore the creative side within us all. When I provide a creative service, I am directly involved in contributing to someone else success and that gives me satisfaction to know that I'm making a positive difference to the lives of others.
What expertise do you bring to furthering your vision: I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Graphic Design in 2011 and spent four years improving my graphic design and photography skills through a few personal projects and a lot of client work. In late 2014 I curated all free and low cost online education resources and began my education journey into exploring all creative fields. I began with textile design, releasing my first design in 2015. I am concentrating on furthering my knowledge in textile design with my second release in early 2016. I have shared my resources and journey on the Killer Culture blog.
Why you opened a store?: By creating products in addition to offering a service, it gave me the opportunity to push the boundaries of textile design that isn't limited by budget or by restrictive design briefs and give the world unique customisable clothing that reflects their personality.
