Hi, I'm Olga, the founder of 10 Fingers for Design and the RLP behind the posts you see here.
.
Design and branding are the work I get to do now. But, it wasn’t always this way. Growing up, I loved biology. I was curious about how the cells worked and how all the pieces of life functioned together. I was a cell biologist, taking “microscopic” photos of cells, published magazine covers, beautiful pictures, and worked to visually tell a story about the organisms we couldn’t see with the human eye – the detailed intricacies of what makes something special.
.
But while my work itself was great, something was missing. I had this constant, uneasy feeling that I wasn’t connected. I felt so controlled by what I did and the academic title I had, without being able to honor who I am or the creativity I craved. I was trying to fit in everywhere my career took me – from field work to academia, from Europe to the USA to China – but I didn’t  belong anywhere. I kept running towards new things only to be disappointed by those same feelings popping up once again.
.
Eventually, I decided to stop running.
I decided to take my experience as a researcher and professor and, design and artist skills, to put it to work as a brand identity designer to empower women to go after their real desires. I found the freedom to do things my way, to be heard and seen in my truth and chase my passion. And I realized that when you do things differently when you invest in yourself and your abilities, you're in turn advancing the world, too.
.
Because the thing is, we aren’t meant to blend in with the crowd. We were born to stand out and to express our gifts fully. Because if we're not ourselves, then what good are we doing for others?
.
Would love meeting you and learn about your story. Please introduce yourself in the comments or send me a DM to start a conversation and a new friendship.

Sundays are for fresh flowers, learning, and planning, which includes to-do lists, decluttering and naming fears; making sure that you're in sync with yourself, intentions, listen to your intuition to show up every day the best you know and can in the week ahead. Sundays are usually quiet around here, the best time to do so. What are your Sunday activities on a regular basis? .

When we moved from Portugal to the US, we were living in St. Louis in a tiny apartment next to a gas station. The lady working there was a sweetheart, going for gas was always a fun experience!
-
We never knew each other's names, but she was always so kind, telling jokes and stuffing the kid with free donuts. In Christmas, she even offered us a homemade salsa which was probably the hottest I ever had in my life (we still have that mason jar).
-
I think she knew how lost we were in the first months of the move and she wanted to make us feel welcome. Even though we never saw the lady again after that Christmas, I never forgot her kindness. Sometimes your seemly small gesture makes a difference in somebody else’s life.
-
So, in the name of the unknown lady of the gas station and her random acts of kindness, if you’re into homemade jams to give your friends or know someone that it is, grab these cute labels in the link in bio. It’s a small gesture-big heart kind of day💕🙏🏻
