About


When I was a little girl I was called Nina Nou and although I’m still fairly little, I completed my MA at the RCA in 2003 and went on to work as a designer in the USA and in Germany for many years, first for Puma and then for Adidas.

In 2014 I decided to wave goodbye to the world multi-national companies and set sail on my own so I could create a range of products with designs that show the wonderful magical animals; four legged, feathered, furred or finned, that live with us in our world.

For as long as I can remember I have loved to draw Animals. Maybe it was all those trips to London Zoo as a child, maybe all those walks on the Heath, in the countryside and the forest, that gave me such a love of the natural world. From all this grew Nina Nou, a brand of ethically made Art, Stationery and Textile products for Animal Lovers of any age.

I hope that my work will inspire you to take care of the planet for the future of all the creatures, (including ourselves!) that live here together within it. 

We are proud that our products are made within the UK.

Our stationery is printed on FSC certified paper using recycled envelopes and biodegradable cello. Our cotton bags are printed on Organic GOTS Certified Cotton and Handmade in East London. 

I work from my small and cosy studio in North London, under the watchful eye of my dog Ziggy.

Look carefully, and you may find him hiding in some of my designs!
