I was born in Europe (Holland) and moved around the world together with my husband. We started in Holland and relocated to the USA (AZ and CT), Asia (Taiwan) and currently live in the Valley of the Sun, Phoenix Arizona.
Having the time of our life overseas is largely a matter of having a positive mental outlook, especially when things get challenging. Living abroad offers so many opportunities to learn, travel, grow, experience the world, and become part of a truly global community of people.
As we embraced this global lifestyle, meeting people, making friends and staying in contact while we are abroad is often the fabric of adventure stories and emotional moments we will remember forever.
A curious thing happened once we relocated to Taiwan, Asia. The local design sense and healthy lifestyle started to influence my choices. I loved exploring new places and always kept an open mind and preferences, taste and style kept evolving. Starting out as a Web & Graphic Designer many years ago I decided to specialize in designing Trendy and Unique products.
After our adventurous life in Asia we decided to move back to Phoenix, Arizona. One day strolling a fun gift market I found a cute little store selling products totally up my ally. I noticed a sign with a familiar logo, Santa Barbara Design Studio. Years ago I was hired as a Graphic Designer to work on a fun project for an inspiring, creative New York designer (Jessica Kagan Cushman) together with Santa Barbara Design Studio. I came in contact with the owner and found out SBDS is now a division of Creative Brands and based in.... the Sonoran Desert in Phoenix, AZ, though its roots run deep in Southern California.
After sharing my passion for on-trend gifts and my past experience with SBDS as Graphic designer with her I can now proudly say I got the opportunity to work again with SBDS on fun creative product design projects together with an inspiring hardworking team.
LOVE BY D.
