About Me & Nut and Bolt Design
Hey, I am Twain Forsythe, the owner / creator of Nut and Bolt Design and chief of design, marketing, website creation and everything in between.
I was born in Northern Ireland but moved to Perth in Australia in my early 30s to seek a new lifestyle in a better climate. I am big into cycling so is pretty good for this! Relocating is never easy but i enjoy it here although I've realised my strong Irish accent is never leaving me!
The concept for Nut and Bolt Design began very casually a few years ago in 2017 and has always been a hobby / interest for myself which has now grown into a business. I have been actively designing t-shirts and artwork for over 20 years but had to focus more on a different career path. I have decided now to pursue my true passions in life and not think about scaling a corporate ladder that i don't feel inspired by.
With the support from followers and customers the business will develop into much more. I am also pursuing a freelance illustrator career to cover everything outside of the Nut and Bolt Design area as i know cycling art is very niche.
My expertise lies in the visual creation and designing side so the geeky technical side of Nut & Bolt Design is controlled through Shopify which is a great platform allowing me to trade online offering secure payment options.
One of my key goals was to use local small businesses for anything i can't physically create myself. It may limit my audience reach but helping business people like myself is something i feel strongly about.
Nut and Bolt Design is a small artist business at the moment so please join me in my journey. New doors open up daily so who knows where it will lead.
Feel free to say hey anytime and your feedback is very much appreciated.
See you on the road!
