With a name like the Freak Mascot it will probably come as no surprise to you that I am a fan of all things odd. And today I’m going to introduce you all to one of my favourite oddities - Christa de Groot. I realise this is an unusual way to introduce a designer, and some of you may even accuse me rudeness, but I assure you my respect is of the highest order. After all, isn’t odd just another word for unique?
Christa de Groot is a graphic designer and illustrator whose creations have won legions of fans the world over. Hailing from the Netherlands Christa has developed a unique style of cute that is instantly recognisable - the mark of a true artist if ever there was one! With the use of simple geometric shapes and bold colours Christa has managed to carve out a kawaii style that is truly its own! Odd and cute in beautiful equal measures!
