hola, goedendag, bonjour,

My name is Claudi Kessels, I am an illustrator and working in graphic design with a strong love for image. After growing up in a small dutch town near the German border – Venlo – I moved to Amsterdam and fell in love with this inspiring, dynamic city and this love never faded. I went to university, worked some years as a teacher and then made a good move again: to art school. After graduating from the Rietveld Academy -and winning the Spinhex & Industrie prize for best exam work- I worked as a freelancer. And my love for art, image and drawing never fades: I love ink, lines,  soup, birds and cycling through the city.




Some of my clients are Sanoma Publishers (Margriet, Flair), Opzij, Skins Cosmetics, HetHoutenHuis, MPG Today. I love working in commission but find so much inspiration in every day life and this city that I start many self initiated projects too.

Contact me: if you like to work with me or have any questions please don´t hesitate to contact me at: post@claudikessels.nl

Have a nice day and thank you for stopping by.
