Hi, I am Charlotte Bruijn. I’m a freelance illustrator, graphic designer and a mother of two. I create joy since 2003. For children aged 0 to 100.
Lottaland is my happy creative studio for the young at heart. A place where characters come alive, where smiling is irresistible and where anything is possible. Whether it’s a girl and a squirrel making music or a brave broccoli going camping.
My style is playful and soulful. That’s exactly how I feel while making it. I start every project with a nice chat, a big stack of fresh white paper and a sharp pencil. The funnyshing touch is done digitally. Eventually I deliver pixel perfect files for printing or online use. All well composed and typed, thanks to my graphic design skills.
I’m always open for new projects, like developing books, products, identities, or whatever you need to make fun and friendly. I am used to work with people and companies all around the world.
