Kim Fleming - Designer

Providence, RI, United States

I'm a passionate designer/illustrator with a proven track record, having worked with clients such as HarperCollins & Scholastic.


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

In my illustration work, I have fully illustrated children's books for major publishers, and enjoy illustrating lifestyle and novelty books as well. My core skills include watercolour painting, digital illustration, typography and hand-lettering.

As a designer, I have designed everything from picture books to 80+pp instruction manuals. 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.


Kim Fleming is self-employed

February, 2003 – Present (almost 14 years)

I have fully illustrated over a dozen picture books for major publishers with my signature watercolor style. My books have been reprinted, reissued in different formats, translated, and sold into 12 countries.

I have also contributed to chapter books, anthologies, and educational books.

My clients include HarperCollins, Scholastic, Allen and Unwin, Magination Press, Weldon Owen, Five Mile Press, Igloo Books, Black Dog Book, Funstastic, Hardie Grant, Rigby, Harcourt, Miscellaneous Press, Pearson Education, Cengage, Leader Newspaper.
