About Heleen Klopper

Hi there! Welcome to my Patreon.
Let me introduce myself: I'm Heleen Klopper, and i'm a freelance designer, illustrator and front-end developer based in the Netherlands.
I've worked in the graphical industry for the past 10 years as a Graphic designer, Concept artist, illustrator, UI- UX artist and front-end developer. I've had the privilege to work with a lot of different companies and people on a wide variety of products. For instance:
  • Book covers,
  • Illustrations for children's books,
  • Colouring pages,
  • Websites,
  • Illustration for clothing and tableware,
  • Mobile applications,
  • Web based products (from small personal websites to complete platforms),
  • Games,
  • (personal) branding.
I love to share what I have learned over the past 10+ years with working with clients, working as a freelancer, as an illustrator and designer. How to produce consistently over time, and how to optimise your work process to allow you to enjoy the ride while producing great products for your clients.
