As a graphic designer I mostly create logo’s and invitations.
How do I design? My work is graphical, simple, flat style, (vector) colorful with a lot of icons. I am naturally drawn to bold, bright color combinations. I work both digital and traditional, a mixture of linedrawing with pencil, pen, ink, more paper cut, and some linocut and computer. I work with Adobe illustrator and some Photoshop.
I am inspired by childrens books, vintage, ceramics and nature like birds, flowers and leafs. they are a joy to draw, as are kitchenware like theapots. I like to doodle and I did a 100days project with a face everyday, and I still draw them often, just for fun.
