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. 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 creatures; four legged, feathered, furred or finned, that live with us in our world.
Maybe it was all those trips to London Zoo as a child, maybe the woolly lion jumper I had when I was three, maybe all those walks on the Heath, in the countryside and the forest, that gave me such a love of the natural world. I just can’t help but draw animals.
Although my designs are specifically for children to love, to dream with and to keep, I am sure you will love them just as much.
I live in London with all my lovely friends and family and, if you look carefully, you may find my favourite dog Ziggy, hiding in some of my designs. (naughty Ziggy!).
