What students are saying

  • Modern Calligraphy for Beginners

    "Great class and starting point to calligraphy. Nicki does a great job with explaining the step by step as well as giving a perspective on practical knowledge based on experience. Simple, informative and looking forward to practising the techniques."

  • Advanced Modern Calligraphy

    "Loved this class and Nicki's stylish and therapeutic vibe! I look forward to her next classes!"

  • Common Words to Master

    "So many words, and all of them beautifully crafted letter by letter. I love how Nicki shows us how to vary each letter in size and spacing, building a variety of expressions with each version of the same word."

Life I design was born out of passion to live a creative life and from a desire to design things that suited my personal taste and what I wanted to have around me. I am a work-from-home Mom-preneur! My kids are now 18 and 16 and I am blessed to have the freedom and flexibility to pursue my love for all things creativity and art while I teach others to do the same! I am a huge fan of online learning and it's how I've built life i design these last 7 years so I'm excited to help others learn new skills, fall in love with creativity and start their own home-based business! I hope you join me for a class or two! I am excited to be a part of your personal and creative journey!


  • If I'm not artistic, can I still do this class?

    Yes! You don't have to be artistic or have nice handwriting to have success with lettering! Imagine drawing sticks and circles. I teach you how to draw them and practice them over and over again. My own personal hand writing is not pretty or consistent, but my lettering is because of the way I learned it! Which is what I'll teach you!

  • Is access to the course limited?

    No. Once you enrol, you will have access to this class for life even if the course gets updated or the cost of enrolment increases.

  • Do you offer refunds?

    Email me directly so we can chat about whether these courses are right for you before you get started! Due to the nature of the courses, I can't always offer a refund, but can always help to make sure you are 100% satisfied!! nicki@lifeidesign.com
