Handdrawn illustration on everyday products


Nice to meet you

Hi! I am Sandra Bruin and I am an illustrator and graphic designer based in a small village just outside Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

I work in a mix of illustration, design and art.
I create work for print and digital, textiles, packaging and products.
All my work is hand-drawn in playful colors, shapes and characters with a happy and fun feeling.

I have lived in Scotland where I studied illustration and design.
In 2007 I moved to Norway and living in different countries has influenced my work over the years. After moving back to The Netherlands I persued a freelance career and worked for several companies as a graphic designer. In the meantime I also started my brand Funny Side Up, I decided it was time to fully embrace my lifelong love of drawing through illustration.
My favourite place to be is my small studio in the back of my garden where I work most days in my creative space.
