A little about Green Tulip Design. And a little about the Designer.


I’m Nicole Kelso


Using both sides of the brain – the creative side and the technical side – I work in a format I like to call “Creative Science.” Working with colors, typography, layout, grids, images, and textures, I create an inviting, coherent design that works as a whole and does what it is supposed to do…SELL. Graphic design is not just creating pretty pictures, it’s about creating pretty pictures to sell the client or the client’s product. To make the client stand out against the competition. To convince the consumer that they NEED this product.

And that is what I do.

About Green Tulip Design

Green Tulip Design was started in Southern California as a moonlighting freelance operation and has blossomed into what it is today: an independently- and woman-owned, full-service design studio based in Dallas, Texas with expertise in branding, web design, print marketing, advertising, packaging, UI design and digital signage.

Green Tulip Design focuses on phenomenal and practical design and superior service for clients in a variety of industries. You always have direct communication with the designer so your notes and feedback are never lost in translation.

Big or small, your project will always be important. At Green Tulip Design, project priority is not set by the price but rather by the needs of the client. Deadlines are my business, you can be sure that your project will always be delivered on time.

Working with Nicole at Green Tulip can be described in one word - AWESOME! Nicole created the branding for my BBQ business, Hell Bent on BBQ, LLC. She has taken my vision and has transformed it into every project she has completed for me. The service is very prompt and very detail oriented. After working with Green Tulip Design, I couldn't see myself working with another graphics service.
