Nathalie Kranich – Designer

Children's Book Illustrator working with vivid colours, in a detailed, highly rendered style! I do both covers and interior Illustrations.


I am a German-born, Uk-based Children's book Illustrator using bright, vibrant colours and a rendered style to bring fantastical stories to life! After gaining experience illustrating in the mobile-games industry, I have now been a freelance Illustrator for over two years and have Illustrated for German Publishing company Loewe. Since joining Reedsy, I have completed several projects for self-publishing authors and continue to really enjoy the process!

I pride myself in excellent communication and transparency, so please feel free to get in touch with questions anytime. Thanks for checking out my work!

As a 2D Artist at this small but vibrant studio in the heart of Canterbury I had the pleasure of working in a tight knit team on titles such as 'Captain Planet - Gaia Guardians' and the Amateur Surgeon Series. I created background, character and prop illustrations and aided in UI and graphic design tasks. The work required strict adherence to deadlines, excellent communication and an iterative process with constantly changing parameters and requirements. Not to mention a good sense of humour that could translate into the characters!
