I believe that craftsmanship gives us the love and quality where we as a society have so much need for, especially in these times of modernization. That’s why I design by using traditional techniques, this means that I mostly work by hand. I design authentic visual identities like: wallpaintings, logos, posters, signs, websites and more.
I help entrepreneurs, who have passion for their product, to visually translate their ideas into a traditionally crafted design.
I believe that modernization is responsible for ‘soulless’ mass-production, while our local entrepreneurs serve us love and quality. Are you a business owner and do you serve quality instead of quantity? Then your clients appreciate the love and personal service you give them. That’s why it’s important to communicate your personality through a visual identity. I believe your identity deserves the same amount of love and personal attention, as you serve your customers.
There are so many different graphic designers, why do business with me?
First, because I design by using traditional techniques. In this time of modernization I see a lot of designs that look very computer driven. The designer lets the computer design; they are actually the instrument of the computer. I love to design by hand. Afterwards I use the computer as an instrument to complete the design. This way you get a design that’s more balanced, and even more important, a better product. I enjoy providing you and your company the personal service that you deserve, while I do what I love!
Second, because I have experience creatively and commercially. Since 2004 I’m helping different companies in the fashion industry (such as: G-Star, Nike, K-Swiss, Tommy Hilfiger, Levi’s and others) to design original and commercial products, with the purpose to sell them on an international and divers market. Besides that I also help local entrepreneurs (such as a: photographer, physiotherapist, DJ, restaurant-owner, neighbourhood association and more). Each one is unique, and all have their own personality and specialty. It’s my creative challenge to visually translate their ideas into a personal, traditionally crafted design. Being blessed with such diverse clients, I have developed a style that’s personal and commercial at the same time.
It’s my dream to let people recognize and appreciate craftsmanship. I’m on a mission to visually bring back soul, quality and love in our world. I want to create traditionally crafted letter style pieces that gives joy to people when they look at it and make them forget their daily routine.

10/10. With no clear brief, we asked Shon to do a mural for our new office in Amsterdam. We had an event coming up and little time to prep the space. Shon delivered both on the design and the execution in record time. He was able to translate our brand into an incredible piece that perfectly captures who we are and what we do. He is professional, neat, a great designer and a pleasure to work with.

"Shon makes things happen – and does that with a very positive upbeat attitude. We commissioned him to come up with a creative idea for an event of one of our clients, Hennessy. He really understood the brand and translated its values to a really neat design concept, which happened to be the one of the most memorable parts of the evening. He has the skill and experience to execute it with a true craftsman’s attention to detail."
CREATIVE DIRECTOR LEVIS XX
"Shon is simply excellent. It's a good thing in this industry to know someone with the skills of Shon. He's very calm and dependable, understands sometimes quite complicated and technical briefs and is always good to have around in work environment. If it were possible to genetically clone him I would."
CO-OWNER RESTAURANT WAKU WAKU
"Shon Price. Talented and motivated to the bone. He created the artwork for our restaurant, which has become incredibly beautiful. His way of painting, the use of shade and the mix of colors: I think it's fantastic. He does not need many words to understand what you want. He is pretty clear in communication and is able to manage expectations. He likes to think along with you but also has a clear opinion. Our deep, underlying thought and message that we have for the world is certainly incorporated in this artwork and we can not wait to show this in our plant-based restaurant. Thanks Shon, for the great cooperation. :-) "
"How to you translate a vision from concept to finished product? Shon's approach to fully understand his customers needs and goals is one which is highly effective and result driven. It's often challenging to find the perfect match/designer to execute a concept in perfect harmony, but Shon has a very easy going way of drawing the perfect long lasting picture and exceeding the expectation."
VISUAL MERCHANDISING MANAGER PATAGONIA EUROPE
