Nordic Vibes showcases Scandinavian arts and culture. All Nordic arts share a similar vibe: the silence combined with the rough sean, the energy of cities like Stockholm, and the cuteness yet rawness of the sumptuously Iceland. The space, nature and silence of the Nordics capture the imagination of many. Eyes twinkle when thinkin about the northers part of Europe, yet there was no place to find a compilation of the arts all of us love so much. It is time to gather, exchange experiences and discover new talents.
Nordic Vibes has a strong focus on travel, music and more and more on Nordic Cuisine, with extra regard to artists, events and locations in The Netherlands.
In june 2011 I, Janine Sterenborg, graduated on the school of the arts in Utrecht. My final project included a business plan for Nordic Vibes. After a while, positive feedback reached my mailbox and several people offered help by writing blog posts, which grew my enthusiasm even more.
In the process of development I collaborated with the Norwegian illustrator Sylvia Stølan. Independant visual artist Choi Wong from Utrecht designed the typography. The website is built in WordPress, using the FlyingNews theme by ThemeForest.
Besides me, several bloggers contribute to Nordic Vibes. We all have a strong connection to Scandinavian arts and culture and visit the countries on a regular basis. We hope to transmit our love to Nordic Vibes readers, through our articles, and posts on social media!
After three years of working on Nordic Vibes, still loving it and still receiving positive feedback, it is clear: Nordic Vibes is no temporary project, maar one I will enjoy for a much longer period. Subjects will shift with my and my bloggers’ personal interest and hopefully this will interesting to all lovely readers!
