Hi! I am Astrid, a visual designer & illustrator based in Amsterdam and I love to make beautiful things with my hands.
Welcome to my colorful world.
Art Direction & Editorial Design
This project is a visual representation of my journey through understanding the concept of time. Using code and the software Processing, I created four forms that represent the four ideas that played the most pivotal role in my exploration of time: measurement, philosophy, art, and design.
Break the X
Editorial Design & Illustration
Growing up, the children’s books I read taught me that certain sports, like football, were for boys, and others, like gymnastics, were for girls. I created this children’s book to break these gender stereotypes and show young girls that they can play any sport they want.
Robsie Concert Artwork
Illustration & Brand Identity
I created this artwork for American band Robsie’s concert at the Empire Control Room in Austin, Texas. The concert has been postponed due to COVID-19, but I look forward to updating these pieces and getting them out on the streets as soon as the dates are rescheduled.
Robsie Brand Identity
Brand Identity & illustration
I developed a new visual concept for the amazing Robsie band in Austin, Texas. The eye is the main symbol, it changes because it symbolizes their band changing through the years. Also, I had the honor to translate Robsie’s beautiful voice and lyrics into a visual concept for the release of their new songs.
Illustration & graphic design
In quarantine, I piloted an experimental concept: drawing meditations. Every Sunday, I lead a new drawing meditation aimed to open those who don’t draw on a daily basis or think aren’t good at it up to the world of drawing. I created these posters to promote the experiment.
Live Painting & Performance
In this exploration of time, the second piece in my time series, I will leave behind the digital representation I created in my first piece to begin a new journey and explore a different experience of it. Through drawing lines, elements and symbols I will explore an alternative reality where time seems to stand still while the world keeps on going.
