Guillaume Kashima is a bit of a restless soul. After graduating from a graphic design degree in 1999 he went roaming across Europe, taking in Paris, Barcelona and Toulouse, working in advertising and graphic design along the way. None of this was to his liking at all and it wasn’t until 2005 that he found his niche working as a freelance illustrator. Since then he’s made one final move to Berlin “the coolest city in the world” where he runs his freelance business.
We’re not sure why Guillaume ever bothered with advertising and graphics; his bright, witty illustrations come so naturally that it’s a wonder he ever did anything else. He has a gift for making the most mundane aspects of everyday life look like the best fun around. Take his voting illustrations for Campagne TPE for example, when has visiting the ballot box ever been that much fun? It hasn’t, but I’d be radically politically active if it was.
