Beautiful brands for beautiful businesses.
Design & Art Direction
Are you looking for a designer or a creative partner for your beautiful business to help you create and develop your brand?
With more then 10 years of experience working as a creative on projects that range from interior design and brand development for restaurants, bars and shops, to designing brand identities and webdesign for businesses and entrepreneurs, I have developed a good sense for creating authentic identities and turning them into beautiful designs.
What business are you in?
My clients are diverse and with different backgrounds, from solo entrepreneurs to ambitious start-ups, from the world of hospitality to fashion and lifestyle to consultancy. But an overall thread is they all are stylish and sparkling businesses, looking for design that shows who they are and what their mission is.
Katrien is a true artist, a passionate and skilled professional. She is able to connect with your passion and qualities and make them visible; she takes your business message and molds it into something gorgeous.
I discovered Katrien’s website through finding her artwork and absolutely loved her sense of style and eye for detail. Since then, we’ve worked together on several projects and in my opinion she is an absolute star as she is able to take any brief I give her and turn it into something beautiful. She is much more than a graphic designer; she creates brands from a blank page and brings them to life. More than that, she has helped me to think through some essential parts of my business just by asking the right questions.
With Katrien Riks you have a design game-changer. Someone who brings design to the next level by combining all senses – including the sixth sense – with her natural intelligence.I hired Katrien to do my logo and brand design after seeing some of the original work in her portfolio. Not only does she have a special talent for creating unique designs that are bold, daring, inviting, and beautiful at once – she is also a thoughtful, dedicated and determined artist in the full sense who clearly aims for the best. She took all of my key wishes to heart – from wanting something elegant to adding a bit of humour. She truly got me and what I do. I have enjoyed collaborating with her during the entire process, from concept to end.
Katrien rocked my branding! I wanted to box on branding ideas inside my head and she was the perfect sparring partner. For me, I wanted to infuse ENERGY into my brand because that’s I want to offer to my clients. And she was really able to help me design “energy” on a level that I couldn’t do by myself. Colors, fonts and feel is one area she dominates, but being able to discuss on a deep level about what you want to stand for and how that could look like….that’s the magic I needed.
I have had the pleasure to work with Katrien on the Rebranding of my company. I have searched for a long time for somebody that “gets” what I want to express. She is a talented and gifted out of the box thinker and very creative in conceptual thinking. She has a great eye for the big picture and the needed details! She really works with you on a project and is not afraid of giving creativity the time it needs to evolve in powerful results! With her you are in good hands for whatever project you would like to work with!
