What is your name and how would you briefly describe what you do?
My name is Helena Hedström and I am a freelancing illustrator and graphical designer. In my portfolio you can find factual illustrations, childrens books illustrations, newspaperillustrations, techingmediaillustrations, logotypes, bookcovers etcetera.
What part of your creative work do you like the most?
I am very fond of the actual sketching when the ideas are about to take shape and the feeling that everything is possible. That include the dialogue with the client which I think is valuable for a successful final result. But I think that every step in the process has it´s own charm.
Have you received any awards or prizes?
I contributed with a caricature of the swedish artist "Petter" in a newspaperspread for "Upsala Nya Tidning" that won an award in the american contest for newspaperdesign "Society of News Design".
