Let’s Get Personal in the Netherlands with Jessica Nielsen


The home of Dutch graphic designer and artist Jessica Nielsen

D:: Dutch is … beautiful skies, water, polders, opportunities, bitterballen, sitting in a circle at birthday parties and I'd still like to think tolerance

E:: entrance, when entering my home you will notice… lots of doors, our hallway has 9 doors, a bit like Alice in wonderland


S:: style, means… something different to everyone but for me: when something / someone makes me smile or sigh upon the first glimpse

I:: interesting places in my city, Rotterdam, are… Bazar, a 'world' hotel and restaurant I worked at for many years and the street it's in, Witte de Withstraat, which has many nice galleries, small (design) shops and cafe'salso the old harbors many of which are being redeveloped and 'added' to the city

G:: gardening is something I… unfortunately never do

N:: new, in my home is… a screen print by Sue Doeksen called 'Jump', it's the first thing we see when we wake up, we are no morning persons so we need a little help 


H:: hobby, I always make time for… my work = my hobby

O:: outfit, my favorite thing to wear is… a dark grey concrete ring Eelco gave me.


M:: magazines I love to read are… mainly: 101 woonideeën, items, nrc next (newspaper), wallpaper and online: bloesem, designboom, design sponge, ohjoy, poppytalk

E:: enjoy, I can't live without… besides my family and friends I can't live without inspiration, a good laugh & a long sleep, espresso, homemade pizza, football/soccer (watching not playing) and of course my dear Mac book 



Jessica Nielsen is an independent designer living and working in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. 
She likes to make designs that are bright, fun and not too complicated. Next to commissioned work as an illustrator – graphic designer, she has her own range of paper and textile products which are for sale in her shop.

I really love Jessica's work and hope she will grow her business to a bigger collection stationery and home accesoiries!!

    Oooooh, “Print Workshop” book seems to be a great book to have as I am always interested in prints and how creatively it can be applied to daily living.

The Bamburgh Cardigan

Head to the North East of England until your reach the land of ancient castles, historic churches and rugged moorlands, and you will arrive in fibre artist Joanne Storie's homeland. This iconic landscape (think Hogwarts) is where she creates her signature BareFaced Yarns - a perfect mix of sheep wool and baby Alpaca - that strongly reflects the rich cultural heritage of the region.

The Crochet Waffle Stitch

Crack a smile

“Darling, crack a smile”... How often have you had that said to you while you were minding your own business? Photographer Mia Mala McDonald and needlwork artist Catherine Tipping had enough of this approach. So they created the joint exhibition Why Doesn’t She Crack A Smile?
