My name is Kim, from studio Helemaalkim. I'm a Dutch freelance graphic designer, illustrator and screenprinter.  I also have a great passion for photography.


I get inspired by music, art, traveling, animals and nature.


I make art and I work on commissioned based projects. My commissioned work varies from graphic design and/or illustrations for all kinds of sorts of printed matter, or for the web. Examples are: posters, flyers, brochures, cd covers, book covers, logos, brand identities etc.

Together we look for the right style and atmosphere for your project!
A list of clients I worked with, can be found on the right. Exhibitions, activities and retailers are also listed there.

My art is for sale in my shop and at selected retailers in Groningen (screenprinted gigposters, limited artprints and postcards). If you are an art gallery, a retailer or someone who wants to collaborate, then please contact me. Companies and individuals can also contact me with questions about projects which I can do for you.
In all my creative work I use different techniques to create an unique atmosphere. Giving just that little bit extra. I make collages, using my photo's in them, collected clippings or all kinds of materials. I love making photographs in search for beauty in the everyday life around me and capturing landscapes and animals while I'm traveling. I like to use ecoline and pastels or I draw raw sketches with pen or pencil. I can also make vector illustrations in clear lines and shapes and graphic and typographical lay outs. And often (like my gigposters) this all comes together in screenprinting the end results.

I like to go of the beaten track and I'm always looking for fun new challenges. If you have any questions or if you would like to know what I can do for you, then please get in touch!
