Heaven is a place on earth


Today, two years ago was a very special day for me. I was living in Thailand, volunteering and teaching English for a year, while doing graphic design on the side. On this day, two years ago, I moved into my new home, which was very much, a little piece of heaven. I felt so blessed to have found this beautiful home in the jungle a few minutes drive from the school I worked at. I have so many great memories living here and am truly grateful to have spent a big part of my time in Thailand in this beautiful home. Check out the view!

It had always been my dream to work and travel and now that I was finally doing it, this day truly was the highlight of my journey in Thailand. I hope to go back there soon to see the kids, whom I miss so much, and also my Thai home, which is very much in my heart.

In an ideal world I would love to travel and work as a graphic designer and do some volunteer work at the same time on a regular basis – I managed to do this once and hope to do it again in the future. Today is such a digital age with so many digital nomad hubs set up around the world, the world really is our oyster to travel and work while seeing the world. Here’s hoping this dream will come true…again some day.

Preparation for an Event


Before any event, a lot of preparation and planning goes into the job. But before anything starts, research for me is one of the most important things. As an artist, in order to create a masterpiece one needs to be inspired. Art and passion thrive off inspiration, and for me with my design, the same process applies.

Nowadays wherever you look, there is inspiration all around us. Instagram for example, is a paradise for image searchers, a place that I am addicted to these days. But also our own experiences are another great source of inspiration. I always like to be aware of what is around me, wherever I am, as I know that everything is somehow connected and most likely will be an inspiration to whatever you are working on.

So whilst researching for ideas, I came across some photos I had taken from an event I partook in while working in Thailand last year. No one creates flower design like the people of Thailand, some beautiful images I’d like to share, hope you like.


My first Corporate Event for FJVA


My first branding corporate event design work as NB Design XO

I worked on all the branding design for the20th Anniversary Celebrations of Francis J. Vassallo & Associates Limited. I’ve worked on many events before within a team, however this was my first event as the sole designer for the whole event. It was a fun and exciting challenge to create all the branding material for the FJVA Gala Dinner at the Saluting Battery in Valletta. I thoroughly enjoyed it and was super happy with the results.
