HAVE YOU EVER...
Have you ever wanted to launch your own fabric or product collection, but you don't know where to get the designs from?
Have you ever looked for designs, which reflect your brands personality and character, but everything you find feels soulless?
Have you ever been tired of all the run-of-the-mill designs, because you look for something more unique and 100% yours - and only yours?
Have you ever just kown that you need an image for the launch of your product, but you don't know what you even want or how to start the process?
THIS IF FOR YOU, IF...
If you don't want to waste time. Because running your business should be your main priority!
If you don't want to worry about production specifications, because that's my job, not yours.
If you are overwhelmed because you don't know where to start. I'll guide you through the whole process, step by step, and feed you the right amount of information exactly when you need it.
If you are sick and tired of the same uninspired cookie-cutter images everyone else uses. Or none of the imagery out there fits you, your personality and the character of your company.

I didn't even have any changes to the selected pattern because it was just perfect.

Thanks for the professional handling. Great for other promising projects.
My name is Nina and I am an Illustrator and Surface Designer.
I am your external Design-Agency for your company and your personal visual needs.
I have started my business in 2018 and have helped many clients since to create or enhance their products or projects.
I know your pain of finding all the necessary information of production specifications or even coming up with a good concept. The good thing: You don't need to, because this is my job.
Never again will you have to spend hours on the internet looking up technical words you don't understand.
You will have more time to focus on strengthening the bond with your customers and clients. I will only feed you the right amount of information when you need it.
You will get a finished design tailored to your individual needs and purposes, so you can sent it straight to your manufacturer.
LET IMAGES DO THE TALKING
Your brain reads visual content much faster than written one.
But skimming over information also has become the norm. Often this is done on smartphones while on breaks, on the bus or watching TV.
I create customised and visually uniform illustrations for you. This way your audience will recognize you and the trust in your brand will grow stronger.
WHY USE ILLUSTRATIONS?
They are customisable!
I make everything from scratch and specifically for your project. An illustration can be as weird as having a cat eating a UFO while balancing on a pole. It will be quite hard to find a photo or stock image of this scene, right?
They are unique!
I create all illustrations by hand, so no one else will ever have the same images. I can adjust everything from style to colours or media to fit your message and your company guidelines.
They are visually uniform!
It can be a hassle to find images for a variation of topics which look similar enough. I can draw your illustrations with the same visual style every time you need additional content. It doesn’t matter if you need more motifs now or in two years.
They are catchy!
If you want people to remember you and your brand, you have to stand out and be consistent in your visual language. Otherwise potential customers are confused.
Let’s create your brand's visual voice to make imagery that sticks with your audience!
They are understandable!
Sometimes there is very complex content. Maybe figuring out its meaning gives you a headache. Graphics paired with texts make it much easier to understand and visualize the information.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Do you wonder how my design process works and what you can expect from bringing your project to life with me? Let's take a look!
MEET & CHAT
We will talk about your project and you can ask me all your burning questions. Together we will discuss the next steps.
CONCEPT & SKETCH
I will work out a number of design directions for you to review. Now we will pick a concept that resonates with you and works best for your needs. Of course we can adjust sketches - because you need to fall in love with them!
You will get a variation of colour choices and applications to pick from. Of course I can change or merge more than one idea into the final result.
I will now work on the final design for you, which we have agreed and decided upon in the previous stages. I will also adjust the design to fit all your needs, if you have to have it for different purposes or on a variety of products.
After your final approval I will send you the neccessary files for your project in a variation of formats. Everything is ready to be sent to the manufacturer. A little bit more patience and you are finally able to hold your finished product.
Which languages do you speak?
German is my mother tongue, but I speak English fluently. So both are fine for me.
I am from a differenz time zone. Can I still work with you?
Yes, of course! We can set up Zoom calls which work with both our time zones. For the rest of communication we can heavily rely on mails as well. I'm very flexible in my way of working, so I'm sure we can figure out a way, which will work for the both of us!
How do we communicate and exchange information?
We will have regular Zoom calls for bigger milestones and do the rest by mail.
How long will the whole process take?
The time it takes to complete a commission depends on various factors such as the number of motifs or the level of detail. Another parameter, which is out of my hands, is how quickly I reveive your feedback and how many changes are required. The better the communication between us, the quicker the project will be completed. Most projects have taken between one and six months to complete.
Can I change the design throughout the process?
After certain milestones you get the time to review your project and tell me about any revisions you want me to work on. These are after the sketch/concept phase and after the colour studies.
What kind of products is Illustration & Surface Design suited for?
There is a vast variety of possibilities. But the most well known areas are: fabrics, wallpaper, clothing, home decor and gifts. But any product can be made with motifs. Cups, maps, posters, postcards, promotion articles and many more. You can even enhance your corporate identity by adding a mascot or a pattern design.
Which payment options are available?
I accept bank transfer and paypal.
