I HAVE 2 MIN VERSION

Freelance Senior Designer with a passion for music related projects. Based in Amsterdam but originally from the cold north, Norway.


I HAVE ALL DAY VERSION

My name is Krister Lima. I'm a 30-year-old graphic designer based in Amsterdam but originally from Stavanger, Norway. I have a bachelor in Visual Communication (Graphic Design) from Deakin University, Melbourne Australia.

I started off like most designers, as a graduate fresh from university working as a junior designer in an advertising agency in Amsterdam. There I worked my way up through the ranks to Senior Designer in an agency career that spanned over 5 years, whereas my last job was inside VICE's in-house advertising agency called Virtue. Those first years were focused on everything from print-based design to digital. That’s given me a strong education and vast experience with both print and web which has served me well as a designer.

I went freelance full-time in the summer of 2019 – a decision that was based on being able to find opportunities that allowed me to express myself more creatively and focus on doing projects related to my passion. With my passion for music, I specialise in everything related to this, from artwork to stage visuals and everything in-between.

I’m also one of the creators behind PERL, a digital model I created together with 3 friends from the creative industry. Over 8 months she gained 12,5K genuine followers and got published in many high fashion publications including Dazed for her original future proof makeup line. PERL was also recently the face of the Carling’s campaign “adDress_The_Future”, which was awarded the Cannes Grand Prix in Digital Craft 2019.


If you'd like to find out more about me, see more of what I do, or discuss potential collaborations and opportunities, please drop me a line.
