hi it's me!
I am a communication designer and illustrator specializing in illustrations, typography, and brand identity. You’ve come to the right place to learn a little bit about me and my work process. Maybe you’ll see some designs you like or at least find something to make you smile. I enjoy creating designs that surprise and engage people.
Laurence Dachouffe : Designer and founder of Happy Makers
I grew up in a hat factory in the middle of cardboard boxes and felts, surrounded by clever systems, invented by my grandfather, a great playground to feed my imagination and taste for materials.
I live and work in Beauvechain, Belgium. Born in Liège, I studied business in Brussels. I have worked in the Netherlands and internationally as a marketing manager in different companies. I then focuse on the education of my two children and devour with them picturebooks. I trained in graphic design and advertising arts at the Stedelijke Leuven Academie. I practice four languages : French, Dutch, English and German. I have always been staging, be it brands, characters, promotion campaigns, events or creative workshops.
Designer in communication, passionate of interactive and playful design, in love with words and images, I am animated by a need to return to the material, to manipulate and to make things oneself. In search of a reconnection with my creativity, I launched the Happy Makers project to share my passion and to connect people through inspiring ideas, especially during the creative workshops I organize. To make quality connections and move from digital to tactile, I created the DesignMaker play-tool to stimulate the creativity that lies in each of us.
