Irene held a compelling PechaKucha on her work and the beauty of simplicity and imperfection. You couldn’t help but browse through her work immediately afterwards. I would warmly recommend her if you want to explain a complicated subject in graphic terms and if you want to radiate a sense of approachability and originality.
Irene created an illustration for Passionate to accompany ‘Beloega’, a narrative by Robin Kramer. She turned it into a work of art in itself, which also aligned beautifully with the story and with Passionate’s ambition to offer a compelling manner of presenting stories online. In terms of communication, working with Irene was also a pleasure.
While working together, I noticed that Irene was very familiar with the professional and minimalist image I had in mind. The result is streamlined and rational. Precisely the aesthetics I was searching for.
Irene works quickly, goal-oriented and efficiently with regular feedback, consultation and progress updates.
It is a pleasure to work with Irene. She is skilled, highly creative and communicates cheerfully and clearly.
Irene is professional, practical and creative. Clear agreements, pleasant contact, excellent results. I plan to return to Irene for my illustrations in the future.
Working with Irene is exceptionally rewarding; with her background as a biologist, she has a good understanding of the subject and which details can make the difference. She is open to suggestions, is reliable, and the dialogue is efficient. We started with a single project, and given the positive experience, we have expanded our collaboration and will now produce a series of medical infographics.
We called on Irene for a difficult assignment: stripping down agricultural techniques for low-literacy target audiences with diverse cultural backgrounds. Irene has a perfect understanding of her assignment, delivers reliably and provides good suggestions. There is humour in Irene’s drawing style which is well-suited to educational illustrations. The most important thing: the farmers who work with the ‘comics’ are deeply grateful and use them weekly.
Working with Irene is a pleasure. She appreciates clear agreements and she contributes ideas to improve the products. Irene has produced illustrations for various Naturalis educational products. I expect that we will appeal to her creativity again in the future.
Irene played a very valuable role in the development of the comic book ‘Anne and the Green nose flu’: not only did she provide the beautiful illustrations, but she also contributed creatively and critically to the most effective way of communicating the content and message. A very pleasant and successful collaboration!
I found working with Irene to be a very pleasant experience. The contact by phone and email about the assignment and the illustrations was friendly and clear. Irene contributes well to the design of the illustrations. After providing feedback on the illustrations, I quickly received the improved illustrations, which incorporated my suggestions well. As a result, all the illustrations were completed quickly and I am very satisfied with the result! For future assignments, we will definitely work together with Irene again.
Working with Irene is a pleasure. Her clear questioning and creative solutions ensure that unique results are collectively achieved. In conversation with Irene, she always knows how to strike the right chord.
Irene completed her assignment for three Information documentation booklets in a very pleasant and professional way. She delved into the subject in question and provided her own creative interpretation (including text), where necessary. All of this aligns with the target audience and in a nice, clear line. An excellent result!
I very much enjoy working with Irene; she always delivers a nice production or illustration and is very clear about the agreements made and her working method. While she isn’t likely to admit it, she is secretly as original and strong in text as she is in her illustrations.
Not only is Irene a talented illustrator, but also a very nice person to work with. She is professional, listens well to your wishes and mixes this with her own creativity to create something very beautiful. She worked on the cover of my dissertation during a period in which I was alternately available due to workload and stay abroad, but she had a flexible attitude and ensured that my schedule also fit into her schedule. I have received many compliments on the cover and would recommend her to anyone.
Irene made a drawing for us of the house of the secretary of our association: a personal farewell gift. With a great eye for detail and love for drawing she made a beautiful print for us. It’s totally our secretary’s house, and she was very gilded with her print.
We worked with Irene Cecile in 2014 to create visuals of the renovation of a national monument. Communication ran smoothly and effectively, and the result was as desired: beautiful images of the location allowing future tenants to visualize their home before completion.
I have been working together with Irene Cecile for 2 years now to my complete satisfaction. In this period she has proven not only to be good in her direct field, but she has also been able to contribute to the content and to translate this into adjustments/improvements.
Irene produced illustrations for the publication of my first column collection. I granted freedom in her initial ideas, which I immediately liked. Irene quickly understands what her clients are looking for. For my collection, she created humorous illustrations that correspond precisely with the tone of my columns. My readers also found the illustrations very engaging. I certainly recommend Irene if you’re looking for an illustrator who, without too much explanation, is able to capture the essence in beautiful illustrations.
Irene was exactly the right person to illustrate the comic book on scientific medicine research for children. With her background as a biologist and experience in scientific communication, she knew precisely what we needed. Irene asks clear and concrete questions to find out what you really want, immerses herself thoroughly in the target group and has valuable insights. In this way, she helped us propagate our ideas even stronger. In short, an illustrator who knows exactly what you want and need and who is great to work with!
The Dutch Lifeguard Association has developed new posters for increased safety in, on and along the water. Based on subjects that needed to be mentioned, Irene made the illustrations to depict this. A total of three themed posters have been made that represent all the subjects in a very attractive overview per theme. The collaboration has been very pleasant. Irene makes clear and realistic plans, is quick with adjustments and corrections and is open to input and suggestions.
Irene created beautifully detailed illustrations for my research project and helped me enormously with her suggestions for the drawings. The collaboration with Irene was easy and the illustrations were delivered very quickly. I am very happy with the result and hope that we will work together again in the future.
I enjoyed working with Irene Cécile. She contributed well to a picture that would suit our article perfectly. Adjustments during the process were all possible with some additional items for later in the article.
Irene made more than 120 explanatory maths videos for children. The videos are very straightforward and clear, and because of the cheerful light-hearted style and the lively introductory film, they are also a lot of fun to watch. Irene asks good questions, listens attentively, contributes ideas and empathizes with the target group. She helped to make the films even better. The videos have proven to be a great success; they are often watched and we get a lot of compliments from students, teachers and parents alike.
I found it quite special to witness how Irene was able to directly get to the heart of our work. Personal and vulnerable, but with a healthy dose of humour!
For the former Military Museum in Delft, now called the National Military Museum in Soest, I asked Irene to collaborate on a visual online uniform determination tool. The collaboration was very pleasant; she is flexible, she contributes well to the development of the tools and the underlying techniques. She has made more than 400 beautiful illustrations of uniform elements, translating difficult terms and concepts into simple images that are also understandable for non-experts. Simple, clear and straightforward. But also simply very beautiful images!
Working with Irene is very rewarding. She regularly creates illustrations for the sums in the Sommenfabriek’s workbooks. These images are lively, colourful and appealing and align perfectly with the target audience. She also assisted me with a constructive sparring session on the design of my books and my company name. By asking questions about my ideas and digging ever further, we came up with a name and logo that correspond perfectly with my company.
Irene’s designs are clear, straightforward and immediately appealing. She works quickly and carefully, with an eye for detail. She understood what I wanted to achieve (could almost read my mind) and surprised me with her input. And that is exactly why you hire a designer: to surprise you with designs that you could never have imagined yourself, but that fit exactly with what you wanted to propagate.
Irene’s cover design is inviting and elegant and has turned the thesis into something really special. An alluring approach was Irene’s primary focus, and given the number of compliments for the cover, it really struck a chord with people. The design process was very pleasant; following a nice brainstorming session together, Irene produced a few alternative designs. Thanks to her background in biology, Irene also had insight into the content of the dissertation – a nice bonus. She delivered the final files quickly, with great care. I can highly recommend Irene’s work!
I found the collaboration with Irene very pleasant. Irene not only has a lot of good ideas but also has the ability to convey your knowledge and ideas well, to listen, to steer. She is easy to reach for questions.
