My life as a designer started at the early age of 6 when I completed my first sketch. Even thought I pursued other avenues which wasn't related to art, I always knew in my heart that one day I would have the desire again to design. For the past several years, I have been building my dream design company to include graphic design, illustration, painting and web design. Every now and then I would create a design that I wanted to put on a bag, jacket, shirt or sweater. About five months ago, I started having visions of phrases and designs that I wanted to place on clothing and received some good feedback. Even though I was so nervous about putting my designs out there with the fear of rejection, I knew it came from the heart. Since I am an introvert, I often suffer from wanting to present my work to world and being scared of rejection if I did. One day I woke up and decided I wanted to purchase the equipment in order be able to produce my own products and to print my smaller design orders. I did just that and now I am here with my own line of shirts and novelty items branded after my namesake Nicole Danell and my own design & marketing company, Bralon Studio. The name BraLon was created by combining first 3 letters of my 20 year old twins Brazil (girl) and London (boy) name.
