Hello! I'm Simone.

I have been doodling and sketching since I was 5. My favorite thing to do when I'm idle is illustrate. I love travelling, trekking, exploring different cultures, meeting new people from all over the world and making friends while travelling. Most of my illustrations are inspired by the music I listen to, the places I go and the little things that I observe.

I enjoy both working in a team and individually. While working in a team my strong qualities are listening, observation skills, collaboration and creative thinking.

As an individual I have a distinct style to my work, but can also work in a wide variety of mediums for many different audiences.
I think exploring and coming up with endless design concepts for a project is essential. I enjoy the exploration part the most in a design process.

Addictions:
Endless amounts of doodling
Coffee
Smiling

Subjects I'm especially interested in:
- I love children. I keep coming up with new concepts and projects regarding child welfare and other causes. I apply special colour schemes and a sense of humour for my projects regarding children.
- I believe in applying sustainable design to my work, keeping in mind the environment and eliminating all harmful elements that might affect the environment negatively.


 
Design Possibilities
I'm looking for opportunities to work in teams that are making a difference to the world we live in, in a positive way, by making use of design.

I believe that in an increasingly global environment, where one can reach almost any part of the world through different forms of media (even if not physically), there is a real need today to recognise that cultures can spill over and interact with each other. And that, designing in cultural isolation or vacuum can be a wasted opportunity for design.

Do write to me if you have something for me to design or if you would like me to be part of your team.
