Nina Hansen, Designer by Heart

Nina Hansen, Designer by Heart


Growing up in Denmark, I earned an A.A. degree in Fashion Buying. I moved to the United States where I earned a B.S.B.A. with a major in Marketing, and a M.A. in Communication specializing in Graphic Design from Hawaii Pacific University. I started my career in fashion and higher education, spending a decade in Florida, Hawaii, and California. I loved the warm weather and being by the ocean. After about 10 years abroad, I recently resettled in Hillerød, Denmark.

I have always been intrigued by all types of design projects. I like to draw colorful things. I love to design patterns, and to draw cute characters, and botanicals. I like to hand draw sketches with a pen, and then digitize my artwork in Illustrator. I love finding new ways to design.

I draw inspiration from the world around me – from beautiful florals, the ocean and ocean life, animals, and from my many adventures abroad.  I am also inspired by flea markets, botanical books, as well as current fashion trends.

My work is driven by my desire to fill people’s lives with beauty and joy. I just love what I do – creating, thinking, and problem solving while making the world a better and prettier place! Being creative makes me happy. My passions are for colors, shapes, and images.  Combining them with words to convey a message is very powerful.

What fascinates me about graphic design is the ability to influence people's minds by creating a visual object. It is so pleasing to understand that all the possibilities are in my hands, and I love the feedback when a project is complete.

Some of my hobbies include fashion, yoga, spas, and travel. My favorite place to be is at the beach. I like to travel, and take walks in nature to find inspiration for my art. I believe that constant learning is the key to success. That is why I still enjoy taking art classes. When working in my studio, I drink lots of tea.

Please check out my portfolio. I love collaborating and warmly welcome licensing opportunities and commissions across the world.
