vonik Illustration & Design

Hello and welcome to the website of illustrator and designer Vonik!

Hi! My name is Esther and I work under the name Vonik. In 2012 I’ve acquired my Bachelor degree of applied arts at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam (Netherlands).
Currently I’m working as a freelancer from my city centre studio in Amsterdam, specialising in illustrations and hand drawn typography.

A lot of my designs are digitally made, but I also do pen drawings, customizing of objects, (live) paintings and murals.

That’s the short version of what I do, if you are interested in working together or still have some questions feel free to send me an e-mail.





As a designer I make about half my work commission based, the other half is personal. The commissions are from businesses as well as private individiuals.

My specialities are illustrations, cards, character designs, logos, handlettering, murals and I also customize random items like shoes, tables, fridges, windows, you name it. If you have a design request or you’d like to know what the options are feel free to send me an e-mail with your idea, time frame and budget.

I’ll get back to you within a few days by sending you a some information, probably some questions and if everything is clear an estimate.
