I'd like to introduce something that's been brewing for a few months (in my head and on paper), but it just recently became official and made it's debut on the big bad internet as The Olivine Design Studio.
Many of you know that my passion lies in working with people to bring ideas to life in the form of dynamic design on multiple platforms - impactful environments and facades, hearty paper goods and creating an attractive online presence.
The Olivine Design Studio is the umbrella that holds all of those things that I do, aside from my regular (very busy!) 9-5 job. My experience in the professional design industry integrates branding, way-finding, graphics, packaging, and interior design through space planning and rendering. However, being creative isn't just my 9-5 job. Being creative is a lens through which I see everything on a constant basis.
So, whether it's for something as intimate as your wedding invitations, or as broad as your retail space, I'd love to help you bring your ideas to life in the form of a custom design. The new website is where you can check out some of my recent work and get in contact with me. Let's collaborate and make something awesome. As Emily Henderson says, "Perfection is boring. Let's get weird."
I've been hesitant to hit the green light on this new adventure for many, many reasons.. but the mystery of where something could lead is one of the best parts of about going down a new path. T.Swift also told us this week that haters gonna hate, so shake it off.
In the way of the NielsenHomestead, although we've had a very busy summer, we've been able to cross quite a few items off our DIY list over the past month or two. Most notably, there's no more blue on the exterior of the house. More to come on that very soon! Three four more things...
1. For all of you faithful observant blog followers, thank you for dealing with the blog's style change every other post. After so many renditions, I think I'm finally happy with it - simple & clean + a focus on good photography. Woo! Danny is so proud to be on the main photo. He says HE is the reason people visit NielsenHomestead. 2. In off-beat news, I just finished up the last of the honey from the honeybee infestation we had at the first homestead. That was absolutely insane, but the honey was divine. 3. We are six sweet people away from 500 followers! If the spirit moves ya, pass this along and help us reach the big 5-0-0! 4. We'd like to send a special shout out to our newlywed friends Nicole & Josh! Congrats, you two!
