GREEN, BUT NO GREENHORN
Colorful Green was founded in 2012 as a green advertising agency by Maria Tiqwah van Eldik (Boskoop, 1982). At the moment Colorful Green is the address for logos, illustrations and paintings for green businesses, charities and animal lovers.
Maria: “Before the foundation of Colorful Green, I worked 10 years both nationally and internationally for big brands such as Heineken, Trump Estate and ING Bank. My functions were art director, graphic designer, desktop publisher, illustrator and image editor. I liked the advertising business very much, but whether 2 or 200 carpets sold through my advertisement, I did not care. I wanted to do something worth doing with my experience and talent. So I resigned and started Colorful Green to only promote what I support. Super fun to do! And I also got customers who share my vision. Since the start of Colorful Green I have been able to make a lot of beautiful work for, among other things, the Dutch political Party for the Animals, Fur is for Animals and the Vegetarian Butcher. In addition, I have given many vegan startups their own visual identity, such as Vegan Events and Vegan Church. I am very happy and grateful that I have been able to follow my heart in my work. ”
