Yolanda's Profile

About

I design + make unique, modern, geometric fine art prints which are perfect to transform any space. // home / children's nursery / office / studio //

Tinykiwi is a little design brand created by me, Yolanda. I was born in New Zealand to dutch parents, and now travel Europe while working as a full time designer and illustrator. At the moment I'm based in Hamburg, Germany.
My unique geometric animal and bird designs are a combination of my love for nature, colour and the belief that less is more. Each animal design is carefully crafted one geometric shape at a time.
Under the name tinykiwi, I sell my prints in stores overseas and throughout New Zealand.

Tinykiwi is a little design brand created by me, Yolanda. I was born in New Zealand to dutch parents, and now travel Europe while working as a full time designer and illustrator. At the moment I'm based in Hamburg, Germany.
My unique geometric animal and bird designs are a combination of my love for nature, colour and the belief that less is more. Each animal design is carefully crafted one geometric shape at a time.
Under the name tinykiwi, I sell my prints in stores overseas and throughout New Zealand.

OUR STORY:
I grew up in a beautiful rural area of New Zealand and since a young child I have enjoyed creating something from nothing. I especially enjoyed drawing and spent many hours sketching the nature around our home. In 2012 I completed a Bachelor of Design, majoring in Visual Communication Design and shortly afterwards opened my an online shop. After selling my first prints I have added to my collection weekly.
My style changes subtly, but continues to be inspired by my love of nature, colour and simplicity.
Designs start as sketches which I then develop and finish digitally. I do not use a Photoshop filter !! On average a piece takes me 3-8 hours.

Now almost 3 year later, tinykiwi has become a full time job. And no, I don't work out of a little studio in the woods with 3 cats..instead I travel and work at the same time. It's just me and my tiny 11" Macbook Air working from the kitchen table, wherever that happens to. Currently I work from Hamburg in Germany.

But the story doesn't end there ! As I haven't yet managed to fit my Epson printer in my suitcase,I leave this side of things (production and dispatch of my art prints) in the very capable (and willing!:) hands of my family back in New Zealand. Now tinykiwi is a 5 person collaboration from two sides of the globe ! It's a bit of a bizarre situation and not always easy, just imagine working over two time zones, organising through Skype and co ordinating by through emails). But we enjoy it and continue to make it work for now !

So I design everything, receive and answer all your questions and process each individual order. From there I pass your order on to my family who very carefully pack and ship them.

Thank you for your support, we hope that you enjoy our combined efforts.

Tinykiwi prints are stocked in stores in France, the Netherlands, Australia, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, South Africa, United States and New Zealand.
