• The struggles of saying "I love you" inspired the founder to create her own personalised love books. 

    Story No. 9 is a Danish online gift shop founded by Nhi Do in November 2017. But its story goes way back. Growing up, she has never felt comfortable saying these three words: "I love you". Her first heartbreak made her found comfort in art and contributed to the creation of the matchbox characters.

    In 2014, she was determined to express her feelings. Although expressing herself verbally was difficult, she would find a way to say it through a unique gift that emphasizes the meaning of love. She got the idea of creating her own handmade love book - a personalised book that illustrated 9 caring actions instead of saying "I love you". 

    With Nhi's vision, she wanted to transform art, personalisation, and actions into love books. Love books that would help others who are looking for a meaningful, easy, affordable, personalised way of gift-giving.

    Others who loved this idea of gifting someone you love, are Nataly Tsiapalo, Ming Luke, and Hamza Aytac Dalgalidere. For years they were working together across the world to create love tickets. They had one common mission: to spread love and celebrate the little things.

    In the end, the struggles of saying "I love you" got Story No. 9 here. Somewhere in between, it helped the founder to realize that "I love you's" should flow naturally without holding back. True love is worth the wait and everyone deserves to be happy!  

    The rest is ... Story No. 9. Watch Love Story

    The fearless web designers

    When we first reached out for the UIG team, asking for an artistic universe, they were crazy enough to take this task. Let’s put it this way, the creation of Story No. 9’s website has not been an easy task. It’s actually been a rollercoaster of joy and challenges – and therefore not a task for any web designers… only the fearless ones.
