What we do We mainly focus on creating custom print designs and on licensing artwork from our non-exclusive library with over 10.000+ print designs to choose from. We can help you clarify what your business signature is and how to translate this into your product line, print designs, strategy and marketing.
From corporate branding, marketing strategies to illustrations and print designs. We'll get you covered. Are you ready to be a leader instead of following the pack? Reach out if you’d like to know what we can do for you. Click here.
What we believe Creating is what we do best, caring is what we find most important. When Maaike was a child she'd use her imagination to hide from the mess she grew up in. No child should ever feel unsafe in their own home and that's why supporting causes for children’s safety is important to her. She’s a spokes person for little ones that cannot translate their thoughts and feelings into words just yet. 1 % of our yearly profit is invested into initiatives that change the course for young children who grow up in an unsafe environment. You also make this change possible by supporting our business.
How it all started
Creating colorful things started at a young age for me. When I was a little girl I began each day with a drawing just before heading off to
school. I would draw every day things, objects and people. My parents supported my creative skills with a new pack of pencils each week and at age 8 I transferred to a more
creative Montessori school. Where I could express my creativity in art and music classes.
After graduating from Graphic Lyceum I got into the prestigious Royal Art Academy in The Hague. Now, a decade later and years of experience in the design industry I now run my own Little Smilemakers Studio. Working on commission for clients all over the globe.
Inspiration From hotdog stands, a stormy sky, those annoying one day flies, traveling and experiencing new cultures, but also the little things I enjoyed as a little girl, growing up, all these small things are translated into my work and influence my design subjects.
