Inspired by her husband’s career in graphic design, Nicole launched Design Curiosities in 2008 to study design while pursuing a science degree. Joined by Steven, DC has become a place of overlapping interests, and the foundation for their own company. It is an ever-growing compendium of design, art, science, and objects that they find curious, beautiful, and extraordinary.
