Pushing for change through the power of design


Illustrator, Designer

This is the 'Nel' behind NelNel


As a young kid, Nel woke up earlier before going to school to draw. This urge to create has never really changed. Today, after this shy kid slowly grew into a proud queer & non-binary illustrator & designer, Nel still loves to design.


With a nearly ten year work experience in graphic design, Nel knows how to turn your idea into a compelling story.

But that's not all. After graduating with distinction at Goldsmiths University of London (MA Race, Media and Social Justice), Nel has gained an in-depth sensibility in social issues that matter.

They absolutely thrive when they combine these skills to create meaningful change.


Studio NelNel carefully selects its collaborations, so that each project aligns to its core values. Besides designing to change, NelNel produces its own illustrations to tell stories about identity, gender and social justice. NelNel Art is a playing ground that's still growing, so check out the latest art works.


Through the power of design, Studio NelNel is founded to push brands to be more bold, inclusive, diverse, human and vulnerable.

In this way NelNel aims to make this world a bit more beautiful - one design at the time.

We are serving you star quality realness.
