I’m a wedding sign writer and calligrapher who works out of my Sydney home office in yoga pants and ‘gym bun’ hair with my hubby Ryan and our two doggos - Pompom the evil dog and Bobbychong aka. Bob! 🐶 🐶
I love burgers 🍔 , old school R&B and Muay Thai boxing!
Welcome to Nikki Design Co. - it’s not just me around here, read on to find out more and meet the fam x
I didn’t always do what I loved to do - A couple of years ago, I worked full time at Sydney Uni as a Marketing Officer and had been there for about 7 years. At some point, I started feeling like a zombie and started to feel uninspired in that job. When Ryan asked me to marry him (we had been together for 9 years), I felt so excited to start wedding planning and was on Pinterest ALL. THE. DAMN. TIME! 😂 I was inspired. I felt motivated to do something creative. I enrolled in a calligraphy course and I fell in love with it. 😍 Our wedding day got closer and we decided to have an intimate garden wedding - I really wanted to make elements for our wedding myself…this is pretty much what started Nikki Design Co. The first wedding sign I ever painted was for my own wedding on March 12, 2016 at The Residences in Centennial Park.
From then on, while I was still working at Uni, I was also working on Nikki Design Co. after work, on week nights, and on the weekends. I invested in a coffee machine (thank you caffeine) and eventually, Ryan (thanks babe!) started helping me paint signs in our living room while watching Masterchef when I started getting more people wanting me to make their wedding signs for them. First it was family, then it was friends, and then other people started hearing about my signs and before I knew it, Nikki Design Co. had kicked off. I remember thinking Damn! I think I've found something I really like to do! 😭
Most days, you can find me in my Sydney home office aka. the living room, painting welcome signs in my yoga pants, doing some calligraphy work on the couch and listening to some Boyz II Men and Rihanna
(I also have dedicated dance breaks when I bust my moves to DJ Khaled and beyonce)
You wanna know what makes me feel hella amazing? Making people something unique and something beautiful and theirs on their big day, because when I think back to my own wedding and remember seeing everyone appreciate the care and detail we've put into making our day ours, made everything that much more special. I’m probably having my 3rd cup of coffee ☕ right about now, dreaming of ways I can help you have your perfect day ❤️, with that exchange of rings and first kiss, you and your partner surrounded by your family and friends, all that love and laughter from that funny best man speech, your dad killin' it on the dance floor with his groovy moves, your bride squad clinking their champagne glasses for more kisses and cheers, you and your partner running through your sparkler send off into the getaway car and onto your next adventure...let's get you closer to that happily ever after ⭐
I am so glad you are here , welcome to the Nikki Design Co. family
Let's get to know each other better!
