A love letter for Nicole

Nicole Huisman is one of the hottest and most successful stylists of her generation. After years of working for ELLE she decided to start her own business as a freelance stylist. She now works for big players like Glamour L’officiel, Vogue and H&M. Nicole has made quite a name for herself.

Nicole approached us in 2017 to develop a new identity and website. We thought two main factors to be most important:

  1. In 2017, a website that only showcased your portfolio was already outdated. Personality is just as important as your work in the Instagram era. Therefore, the site should have an interactive element and an integrated Instagram feed where Nicole’s followers can keep in touch and stay updated with her latest collaborations and personal favourites.
  1. Since Nicole is a stylist herself, the brand identity can’t ‘overrule’ her work. That means no big flashy letters over photo’s, no wild patterns and no illustrations: that would only distract from what’s most important: her work.

Keeping this in mind, we designed a typography based on Nicole’s style and character. We called it: ‘Loveletter Roman.’ The letters are girly, fashionable and young. A touch of nostalgia with a modern, slightly romantic twist. Letters that speak for Nicole and her work.
