vonik Illustration & Design

Hello & Welcome

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 illustration (ofcourse), live-drawing, character design, 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.
