My name is Nigel Acosta. I am the founder and editor of the blog Designkrate. Designkrate came about as a need to express my artistic outlet, when I was a graphic designer working in the boring print industry dealing with clueless clients. The name Designkrate was born out of wanting to honor my design background and the idea of creating inspiration for fashion, travel, home, and of course design.

About Me

I am a former Graphic Designer, Art Instructor, and now turned ESL Teacher in Beijing, China. Designkrate is my lifestyle and travel blog.

My Promise is to Keep it Simple!
