hello

I’m Tjitske Storm, freelance designer from Amsterdam, and I like to create. My style is eclectic – bold, clean or colorful. My main personal inspirations are nature, animals and organic geometry. Want to know more? Check out my portfolio and let’s have a coffee.

concept development
My design process kicks off with an extensive interview and brainstorm about your idea. Through specific questions and remarks I get an understanding of your needs and together we define a strong base for your concept. This is continued by profound research about trends and business examples related to the topic, from where I will develop an original vision. To visualize the newborn concept I make use of inspirational images, colour cards and sketches elaborated with a clear narrative and design guidelines; the foundation for further creative development. 
artworks & patterns 
I offer pattern & artwork design for any kind of surface, from idea to realization. Patterns can be placed as single artworks or made into all-over repeats. Any project includes sketching, designing and technical execution. My knowledge about various production techniques, materials and colour-management makes opportunities endless.
  • Interior textiles like carpets and wallpapers
  • Fashion textiles like clothing and accessories
  • Print-media materials like posters, stationary and photo-shoot backdrops
  • Any other surface you would like. I also make silk-screen prints by hand. 
graphic design
I develop traditional graphic design too, such as brand materials and marketing tools. If needed, I can outline an authentic graphic identity for your goal and its audience or I use the existing (brand) identity of your project as a guideline for the graphic output.
  • Catalogues and flyers
  • Logos and brand identities
  • Custom artworks, posters and stationary
  • Packaging
  • Websites (WordPress)
illustration
My illustrative work is organic yet graphical and can be hand-drawn, digital or mixed media, depending on your project. An extra touch can be given through the use of versatile painting techniques, handmade silk-screen print or 3-D embellishments and features. 
writing
I have over 8 years of experience in writing and editing for the international trend magazine WeAr Global Magazine. I often use this skill in my design projects as well, to capture clear stories about concept and design. This can help in defining your project and reinforce the visuals.
out-of-the-box
Besides my main skills and experience, I’m always excited to use my creativity in other ways as well. So if you have a great idea or question, just shoot.
