Kuvva was founded in 2012 by a small team of creatively driven, illustration hungry designers, developers and thinkers.
The idea was to create a platform for illustration to purely show and share the work we liked and wanted to see ourselves on our own screens. Working closely together with the illustration community for the past few years has taught us that illustrators are a diverse bunch of incredibly talented, hard working and under appreciated individuals who are in general underpaid.
Today our goal is to shine as much light as possible on a handpicked bunch of individuals, to help to sell some of their work to brands, organisations and individuals and most importantly to help them get paid for what they do.
We chose Pegasus as our mascot to represent our product because it is one of the best known creatures in Greek mythology. The winged divine stallion became a symbol as the creator of sources in which the creative community drew inspiration.
Our team is less than ten people located in Amsterdam’s cultural centre; the Westergasfabriek, housed in an old gas factory providing a blank canvas for what’s good in all verticals of the creative world. Downstairs is our gallery, dedicated to illustration and interactivity. Upstairs is the studio where we play. Keep track on what's happening via our blog.
Welcome to a new level of illustration.
