Welcome, how nice of you to visit my website!
studio sterre is a design studio founded by designer Hesther de Jong-Nijland.
Color and design is my passion!
For me, creating illustrations and designs is the perfect mix of colour, shape and material,
a mix of chaos and order, of symmetry and playfulness and that is reflected in my work.
During walks through forests and along wetlands in the area where I live and work in Friesland,
I take pictures of flowers, plants, animals and insects.
There is always something to discover in nature and I use this inspiration into my designs.
For example, the color combinations of flowers,
the details of leaves, the shield of a beetle or the plumage of a bird.
Then I research the right color combinations for my designs,
grab my sketchbook and work out my ideas, then the digital design process begins.
I hope you enjoy viewing this website!
