The Short & Sweet Intro
Hello and thanks for stopping by! I’m Shauna Haider, a graphic designer and blogger residing in Portland, Oregon. Nubby Twiglet is both the name of my blog and design studio. In case you’re wondering, the Nubby Twiglet branding was created by merging two of my nicknames back in high school (I had a serious love of mod icon Twiggy). I’ve been actively blogging since 2001 and posting on my own platform since 2007. I honestly can’t imagine my life without it.
The Official Bio
Graphic designer Shauna Haider has built a name for herself over the last five years through her internationally recognized design studio, Nubby Twiglet. To date, she has successfully collaborated with upwards of 100 small businesses on branding and advertising campaigns. Nubby Twiglet is also the title of Shauna’s popular design and lifestyle blog where she actively shares her knowledge and insights with readers from around the word while providing applicable career advice.
Combining her razor-sharp design aesthetic with a passion for branding and marketing, Shauna has teamed up with the likes of Adidas, Forever 21, Nike, Smith Optics, Solestruck, Virgin Records and The Wall Street Journal on various campaigns and creative endeavors.
The branding of Nubby Twiglet has been published in Super Identity (Hong Kong) and Shauna’s design insights were recently included in Work For Money, Design for Love by best-selling author David Airey. In December 2012, international design publication Computer Arts honored Shauna with an 8 page feature in their Collection series.
After clocking five years of branding experience at a variety of ad agencies in addition to working with her own roster of clients, Shauna has learned that nothing worth doing is easy, and believes that if you put your heart, mind and soul into your brand and back it up with a well-defined strategy coupled with market research, you’ll be well on your way to creating a business and blog you (and others) truly believe in. Shauna teaches an in-depth segment about brand building at The Blogcademy, a strategy-based blogging workshop she co-founded in 2012 with Gala Darling and Kat Williams.
Shauna believes in: living your life to the fullest every single day, even if that equates to very little sleep. She has a deep, deep love for Michael Jackson and llamas. Following in her mother’s footsteps, she also worships Steve Perry of Journey. She adores her crazy 1928 Bavarian-themed house in Portland, Oregon which she shares with her brother, Carey along with her husband, Joey and their dog, a powderpuff Chinese Crested named Rocky.
Nubby Twiglet was created five years ago as a platform to curate and share my obsessions with design, marketing and style on a regular basis. With dual degrees in both design and business, my aim is to not only inspire but to also provide applicable marketing content that my readers can apply to their own creative businesses. Knowledge is power and I believe that we each have an area of expertise that we can share with the world. Feel free to get in touch with me at email@example.com!
The Nubby Twiglet design studio was officially launched in 2008 and currently offers full-service graphic design and branding services for a variety of clients. Besides five years of hands-on experience at ad agencies and design studios, I have worked extensively with upwards of 100 small businesses, assisting them in creating memorable campaigns and unique branding experiences.
Well-versed in both print and web, some of the more recognizable brands I’ve partnered with include Adidas, Forever 21, Nike, Skullcandy, Smith Optics, Solestruck, Virgin Records and The Wall Street Journal.
