Jessica Nielsen,
surface pattern design & illustration

From my studio in Rotterdam I create surface pattern designs for home textiles, children’s apparel, packaging, fashion fabrics and accessories. Next to patterns I also make illustrations and artwork in a minimalist and colourful style.

Licensing & commissions

More than hundred original patterns are available for licensing right away, in my online pattern catalogue you will find a small selection of prints. If you would like to check out my illustrations please have a look on this page. Of course you can also commission me to design a custom made pattern or illustration to fit your product perfectly. Read more about custom-made designs here.
I have have had the pleasure to create patterns for fabric, wrapping paper, umbrellas, packaging (also graphic design), website backgrounds and more!

PostNL x MOAM Christmas stamp

By | illustration, press, project

This year I had the honour of designing a Christmas stamp for the Dutch postal service in collaboration with MOAM. They asked 10 designers to create an artwork inspired by the Christmas stories of 10 Dutch celebrities.
I made an illustration for Tineke Schouten a famous Dutch comedian with stage characters that are colourful and outspoken. She told me about her Christmas memories and traditions which mainly focus on humble celebrations with family, going to church and the comfort / warmth of being with loved ones. View all Christmas stamps on the PostNL + MOAM website, some nice mentions on VOGUE and Harper’s Bazar.

Hutspot & Veloretti

By | illustration, project

To celebrate their 5 year anniversary, Hutspot asked 5 illustrators to customize 10 different Veloretti bicycles. I created a ‘cityscape’ on both bikes with a permanent marker. It was quite a lot of work to draw all the shapes but I’m very happy with the result and I hope the new owner will be too!
You are able to win one of the ten Veloretti bicycles by getting a lottery ticket at one of the Hutspot stores, all proceeds go to Spieren voor Spieren. Visit for more info.

Gift box

By | project

Packaging design for the Babongo GIFT BOX (containing three natural soap bars). Always a pleasure to design packaging when you love the content.
