Good design starts with good DESIGN STRATEGY. We can help in this process to define what is required before starting on creative concepts. If required we can arrange design strategy or concept testing. It is important to have confidence in any new design direction.
For us a successful BRAND IDENTITY is ensuring that everything visually is working effectively together to communicate a clear and distinct brand story. We have developed brand guidelines for many companies to help with consistent and effective execution.
We are a specialist in PACKAGING DESIGN and consider this a very important part of brand identity. For many companies it is the only contact a consumer has.
We give PHOTOGRAPHY special focus. In addition to his creative director role, Kevin is a food and lifestyle photographer. We have developed photography guidelines for Nutricia, Bolsius, P.S. Food & Lifestyle and Philips among others. In addition to photography and illustration we bring your brand story to life with animation, 3d rendering and film.

WHY THE NAME
BOWLER & KIMCHI?
Combination of two icons from two cultures: The British ‘bowler hat’ (Kevin being British, living in The Netherlands since 2004 and fluent Dutch) and Korean ‘kimchi’ (Kyanne being Korean, with Dutch Nationality), essential in Korean cuisine and one of Kyanne’s favourite things to eat. Kimchi is also in Korea what people say instead of ‘cheese’ when making a photo and nice link to our passion for photography.
