Lyanne Tonk [1990] is a graphic designer based in Amsterdam [NL] My work is conceptual as well as intuitive. I try to tell stories with my works, and to get the viewer into a contemplative state of mind.
I believe in a refined way of designing, in which materials and typography are important elements. My design in a nutshell contains graphic design, print, autonomous projects, identities, art-direction, design concepts, 3D, questions, collaborations, tactility, visual storytelling and type. I'm available for freelance work.

Please get in touch, if you would like to have more information.
