Gorgeous print, I love it. Thanks for matting it so beautifully too!
Once upon a time...
in a country called the Netherlands, there was a little girl named Linda. She was three years old and already loved drawing. On everything. She also loved to get her hands dirty. She would find something old and dirty and eat all the dirt away – literally – until the old thing was beautiful again, a love she would have for the rest of her life.
Years later Linda went to the Academy of Fine Arts, to become a teacher in art and design. She discovered quite quickly that her love for teenagers wasn't nearly as big as her love for art. She decided teaching in schools wasn't for her, but teaching in museums would be. So she went back to school, to become an education officer. She learned everything you can imagine about museums and after an internship at an exhibition design company fell back in love with design – which also was her favourite subject in Art School.
Fast forward a couple of years again, and Linda has met her prince and moved to the UK to live in his castle. By now she's worked for quite a few companies and she has build a nice portfolio. Looking for new challenges, she decides to start her own business.
Trying to find a style that fits her and her personality, Linda stirs together all the things she loves until she's found the perfect cocktail: take one unit Typography, add a big splash of Simplicity, a dash of Storytelling – she loves that narrative flavour. Stir well, pour in a high glass and finish with a slice of Silhouette on the edge. She wonders what to call this new favourite drink of hers.
"Dutches." she whispers while raising her glass. "To happily ever after."
Linda is a Dutch graphic designer based in the UK. Her love for fairytales and stories sparked the idea to tell stories in a different way. Literally, by creating images with little stories hidden inside. Read more about Linda on www.dutches.co.uk
