Work With Me

Well, hello

So, what are you?

I am Kaia Meier, and I am a graphics girl and technical illustrator. I create graphic content for sewing patterns’ instructions and draw fashion and technical flats and layouts. Most of the time, I work with womenswear.

What can you help me with?

If you already have a sewing-pattern brand or start one or write a book on sewing techniques, I can help with the graphical part. I can illustrate sewing instructions, draw fashion flats and style cutting layouts, pattern overviews and guides. Also, I can put all those pretty pictures and text in place because I have skills in creating page layouts in InDesign. I recently started exploring the world of 3D apparel, so sometime soon, 3D-modelling will be on a list of my skills.

Aha, clear. What is special about your work?

I used to draw since I was a kid and even got an architectural education. It gave me a sharp eye for proportions, lines and colour and helped build a solid basis for graphics, hand and digital, logic, technical processes, time management and spatial thinking.

Though I’m mom- and then self-taught in sewing, for 2.5 years, I worked as a tutor for sewing and patternmaking. So, I know patternmaking and various sewing techniques. For the first part of my sewing life, my mom and I used commercial sewing-patterns, so I’m no stranger to them.

I work with text descriptions, rough sketches and photos as references to create sewing pattern illustrations, though it always depends on pattern complexity.

I enjoy ongoing projects and small teams with good communication.

I live in Berlin and work remotely, so my clients come from different countries.

How can I reach you?

The fastest way will be to write me an e-mail.

Also, let me know if you’d like to see my portfolio.
