Ilse Solleveld

The artist presents herself:

I am a Dutch graphic designer living and working in Estonia. For over ten years I worked as the resident graphic designer at the music venue Paradiso in Amsterdam, before moving up north. Here I have my own graphic design studio (Solleveld & Toim), together with my wife. We create online and offline effective designs and assist companies in creating assets (based on their own design), during campaigns or festivals.

In my work I am mostly inspired by art movements such as De Stijl, art deco, Futurism, graphic novels, travelposters, designers like A.M. Cassandre, Sybil Andrews, Riccardo Guasco, Fortunato Depero, Martin Kaye, music and whatever happens in my life. I like to use bold colors and try to leave out any clutter, so the message can always be readable from any distance.
