Design Spotlight: Erwin Van Hesteren

June 5, 2014

Our Design Spotlight falls today on Dutch artist Erwin Van Hesteren, who joined GCU in May 2014. We like his style!

My name is Erwin van Hesteren, graphic designer from the Netherlands. I design brandmarks, websites, posters etc for companies.

My wish was to design something for my own. My passion is making great, funny an adorable illustrtions. And when a friend asked me to design a birth announcement for his daughter I designed a new style by my own..

Since one year I started my own website in the Netherlands. At that site I sell several birthday announcement cards. What I missed in birtday announcement cards were fresh, funny illustrated cards, so I made a unique style in which I illustrated several characters. The customer can change all cards in color and fontstyle.

Next to my own site I design more greetingcards and birthday invitations at a big Dutch website (kaartje2go) similar with GCU.

For now I designed 3 cards at GCU. This card is one of them

The owl was the first character I designed for my collection. In the illustration I use many patterns and textures combined with graphic elements. It seems a bit that I use a 3D program for that, but It’s a 2D image.

    Welcome Erwin! Your owl is darling! I love the mix of patterns and textures, and your 3D look on your 2D design!
