Hi I’m CECILIA HEIKKILÄ.

I’m a swedish based graphic designer and illustrator, mostly working with childrens books.

 

You will often find me in my studio with my corgi, or traveling, always being glued to a cup of coffee. I love animals, pens and paper and the smell of new books. I believe humans and animals should have the same equality and I am proud of supporting and being a member of the Animal Rights, Sweden (Djurens rätt).

 

Some of my inspirations are; Tove Jansson, Richard Scarry, Maurice Sendak, Hayao Miyazaki, Beatrix Potter, Kenneth Grahame, Roald Dahl, Michael Ende and my dog Mochi of course. When it comes to storytelling I always enjoy a well written video game and sometimes work with reviewing them (did someone mention my favourite developer Bioware?).

 

I love to work with both smaller and larger clients, a couple of them being Bonnier Carlsen, Rabén & Sjögren, Hjärt och Lungfonden, Berghs förlag, Leopard Förlag, IKEA, Havsmiljöinstitutet, Djurens Rätt, Nikita, Royal British Columbian hospital, Teater 23 Malmö and Your Wallpaper Stockholm.

 

Why don’t you study my doodles on bananas on instagram or drop me an email at hej@issie.se if you have any questions or inquiries. I look forward hearing from you!
