About

Hi! My name is Daphne. The forty-something girl behind the Dutch Lady Designs. I might not really see myself as a lady, but I'm definitely a Dutchie. Together with my husband and my two teenagers I live in the Netherlands.

I've been blogging myself on and off on personal blogs and even a health food blog at one time. In February 2014 I started this website with the main focus on Blogger blogs and digital design, which proved to be a bigger passion than cooking ;-)

I am a self taught graphic designer working from home. My areas of design are blog layout design for the Blogger platform, logo & branding design for bloggers and small business owners, printable design in the form of Photoshop card templates and clipart and scrapbook papers for creative people.

While I never went to school to become a designer, I love every minute of it! I was actually trained to be a medical secretary. But life takes its course and one day I discovered I really, really liked to play around with the layout of blogs. After many hours of trying, trying and trying and diving into graphic design I opened my first Etsy shop back in 2014.

My shop Dutch Lady Digi Design sells blog and business related items and in my shop The Dutch Lady Designs I sell instant download stuff like clipart and scrapbook papers, digital items that are ready to use.

Besides loving graphic design I love all things English, especially English detective series on TV or in book form. Nordic noir is starting to become a huge favorite as well. I like to indulge in cappuccinos and chocolate, love my cats, and would love to live in a teeny, tiny farmhouse one day where I can live out my dream of having a full functioning organic veggie garden. Till the time I become a farmer I will be here, at your service, creating digital designs made with love!

If you have any questions regarding my design work, you can contact me via the Contact Page or via my Etsy shops!
