"It's Kismet!" Announcing: Collaboration with Christina Heitmann

We're happy to have Christina Heitmann collaborate with Kismet Decals by contributing her quirky, one-of-a-kind illustrations to be made into fun wall decals!

Christina tells us about herself and her inspirations:

"My name is Christina Heitmann and I work as an illustrator based in Stockholm, Sweden. As a child I often sat with pen and paper and created my own endless worlds and stories.

Still, I am driven to bring stories to life and create worlds that exist only in the imagination. I think the charm and strength of illustrating is that you are able to create things that can´t be captured with a camera.

In Illustration, I have 17 years of experience working with magazines, books, brochures, web, events, fashion and advertising campaigns.

Today, I divide my time between commissioned illustrations and self-initiated work, and I have my sights set on designing beautiful and clever products for the home.

My style is characterized by its simple lines, dynamics, attitude and playfulness. During the creative work process I like to twist and turn an idea, finding unexpected angles and bringing it to a head.

I find inspiration for my illustrations in the ordinary details of everyday life, movements, contrasts, a nice cup of coffee and jazz music. I also love visiting Berlin to enjoy the creative vibe that´s always in the air. Berlin is dirty and frayed at the edges and it´s somewhere in the imperfect that I find a tremendous urge to create.

I think I have the best job ever! I am grateful and feel truly humbled that I have the opportunity to work with what I love and where my heart is."

It looks like we will have to plan a trip to Berlin next; Christina makes it sound terribly interesting! But first, we're delighted to share her collection for sale right here on Kismet Decals. Check out her work now!
