Kim FlemingDesigner

Providence, RI, United States

I'm a passionate illustrator/book designer with 10+ years experience, having worked with clients such as HarperCollins & Scholastic.


I have been working as a professional illustrator and designer for over 10 years.

I have fully illustrated children's books for major publishers, such as HarperCollins and Scholastic. My books have been sold into over 12 countries, and translated into multiple languages.

I also enjoy illustrating lifestyle and novelty books as well. My core skills include watercolour painting, digital illustration, typography and hand-lettering.

I have designed many of the picture books I illustrated. I pride myself on translating the vision of the author or editor into creative effective solutions.

I look forward to hearing about your next project!

Work experience


TLN press

January, 2009 – August, 2016 (over 7 years)

I created all print material for TLN (Teacher Learning Network), including a distinctive book series which stole more than its market share, by standing out against other books in its genre. The first book was reprinted 4 times.

I also produced over 20 publications which were constantly noted for their fresh and innovative design. I pride myself on working closely with the author or editor to realise their vision in a compelling and striking way.
