Jade van der Zalm Illustration

Illustrator | Storyteller | Animator

The name YU-NIQ has a double meaning. The first meaning comes from my Chinese given name; Yu. The second meaning is that, when spoken, yuniq sounds like the word unique. I want to be unique in my designs and my way of storytelling.
My name is Jade van der Zalm and I am someone witha great passion for stories. I love to listen to them, to read them, and tell them. I love translating dry information into something people enjoy. Creating new worlds and people, bringing them to life with an illustration or animation is something that brings me a lot of joy, but seeiing people enjoy and learn from it is the most rewarding thing of all.
