Happy New Year! This mixtape truly shows one of the highlights of my 2019: exploring new corners of our beautiful globe and being on the road. No matter if I discovered one of the most breathtaking landscapes I’ve ever seen in Chile, got lost in the big city life of NYC or stayed close to home, adventure is out there and I can’t wait to see more of it. I am planning to use this inspiration boost to create new products and illustrations in 2020 and to share this wanderlust also with you.

27.08.2015 | Back home & back to business

 

I have some incredible and inspiring weeks behind my back and now that I am here again it feels a bit like a dream. Luckily I have proof in form of thousands of photo’s, sweet little findings I took with me and a little sunkissed tan on me, that (let’s be honest) unfortunately will not last as long as I would like to. Especially with this grey weather in this city. During my trip I found the luxury of not spending a lot of time on the internet and social media, except from one platform I could not keep my hands off: Instagram. If you would like to take a glimpse of my past weeks then click here. And if you want you can also follow me there (next to here in my journal katipeifer) to be up to date all the time. While you do that, I will go back to business and work on some lists and plans for the future.

06.07.2015 | Southeast Asia

 

Next to all the changes in my life at the moment I have another great adventure in front of me. It is time to go on a new journey and get some new influences and inspiration…sketchbooks are packed and the camera is ready! From the beginning of July till the mid of August I will be on an exploration of Southeast Asia. Have a great summer!

Journal | Anabella (24.06.2015) - studio katipeifer

It is time to move (on)! A couple of weeks ago I made some decisions that have quite some influence on the future. One of them includes a change of scenery, because I am moving to a new place. It is time for me to say “Houdoe” to my student city Breda and go on new adventures in a bigger city with new opportunities and new influences that will hopefully also have a good impact on me and my work. I will temporarily move to Leiden and around autumn it is the plan to move to the new home city called Utrecht, nice and central within the heart of the Netherlands. I already moved a lot of stuff and I am also happy that the cups of my tea set ‘Anabella’ survived it all in one piece. More news are coming soon!

11.04.2015 | Photoshoot

 

Yesterday was one of the first really nice and warm days in the Netherlands and even if I could not really enjoy it outside, I had a good and especially productive day anyway. I temporarily rearranged my room to set it up for a photoshoot to realise a photo for my contact-page. By the way I also joined Instagram…happy to be part of a new platform to share my love for photography, design and travel.

After a more (businesswise) quiet year of 2014 I want to make a change in this new given year. I learned and realized a lot about working and trying to handle my own starting business next to it in the past year. And as a result of this I want to make some changes. Some new plans and ideas are developing at the moment to keep me more in the flow and give this ‘baby’ a greater way for the future. I am excited for this adventure… let’s have fun and enjoy the ride!
