My Life as an Illustrator

BY RICK BERKELMANS
@ VOL 6 ON MAY 23, 2013

Rick Berkelmans' (1986) work consists of a vibrant mix of images, typography and color. Never being too much in your face, Berkelmans always makes sure his work is packed with a certain attitude, casual but clever, tactile but professional. The finishing touch to his work is Rick's love for printing techniques, which combines his fresh illustrations with a unique vintage look.

Rick lives and works in Breda where he runs his oneman design studio Hedof. With a combination of commercial projects and exhibitions he raised his profile on an international level. Recently he made a trip to Helsinki and shares his visual adventures below zero.

My Life as an Illustrator

BY ARON VELLEKOOP LEÓN
@ VOL 5 ON FEB 28, 2013

Aron Vellekoop León (Fuerteventura, Spain 1987) is a graphic designer & illustrator, currently living and working in The Netherlands. His work is best described as a mix of symmetrical shapes, a plain usage of elementary colors
and reused textures. This basic recipe has led to a characteristic infographical 'handwriting' and an abstract way of storytelling. Being inspired by traditional printmaking techniques, Aron always stays close to that handcrafted look and feel.
