Hedof is the one-man creative studio of Dutch illustrator Rick Berkelmans. His striking illustration work is a thoughtful, well-balanced composition full of candy coloured sceneries, suspicious characters and wonky shapes that reflect Rick’s positive attitude. He will give an artist talk at Blend and also do portfolio reviews. And he’s present with some supernice illustrations collected in an expo.
Hedofs projects consist of a vibrant mix of images, typography and colour. Never too much in your face, Berkelmans always makes sure his work is packed with a certain attitude, casual but clever, tactile but professional. His laid back, yet smart approach to image-making has found its way into numerous magazines, products, advertising campaigns, installations and huge walls, all over the globe. The finishing touch to his work is Rick’s love for printing techniques, which combines his fresh illustrations with a unique vintage look.
