Thijs Kelder lives and works in Rotterdam as an artist/ (graphic) designer since 2006 at the intersection of design, typography and visual art. All projects are distinguished by detail, a unique visual language and the mix of different materials and techniques (2D / 3D). His work often has a humorous slant (with a critical edge) and is strongly inspired by pop culture, vintage / neon advertising, icons, slogans and city life. He takes timeless subjects like love, temptation and aging as a theme.

 

Studio Ruwedata is always up for new projects. If you’re after a creative designer who’s not afraid to think outside the box, I reckon I might just be the guy you’re looking for.

 

Specialising in art projects, design concepts, illustration, graphic design, brand identity & graphic spatial design.
