Our experience in branding and conceptualisation paired with our meticulous follow through on technical detail makes every visual communication project that we undertake a commercial success. Our unique focus on blending digital design techniques with traditional crafts such as illustration, painting and paper craft, bring unique differentiation to our clients in a crowded marketplace.
With every new client, we begin by learning about your business, your needs and your budget. We conduct research into your business, its customers and the market, create an effective strategy and finally, formulate a concept. We work with you to refine that concept before we use our skills, tools and materials create a project that perfectly reflects your brand values or creative requirements.
Rebecca van Ommen,CEO and Founder
Paper Boat ceo and Creative Director Rebecca van Ommen founded London-based creative agency Paper Boat in 2009. Her roots in illustration and paper crafts took a back seat during her early days at multinational advertising agencies DDB and Leo Burnett. In 2006, she became an independent design consultant for projects spearheaded by agencies including JWT, Campaigns & Grey and McCann. Later, as art director for Getty Images, Rebecca reintroduced craft and illustration to her work while retaining a commercial look.
Rebecca’s vision of merging realistic traditional illustration with graphic design, along with her strong roots in business and advertising is making Paper Boat a thriving business. The business has expanded into Southeast Asia, opening an office in Manila in the Philippines. Recently a third office has been set up in the sunshine & business capital of Israel, Tel Aviv. Today Rebecca oversees all creative work executed by her international team, upholding Paper Boat’s values of creating high quality design work that has a purpose and a clear direction. She travels between London, Manila and Tel Aviv, managing her design teams.
