Sarah Sander Fashion Print designer Illustrator working as freelancer painting

Hi,

my name is Sarah and I'm a fashion designer. The last three years I worked for a young fashion company as designer in the female department. Currently I work as a freelance in fashion and print design.

My prints are strongly inspired by the nature and colors I saw while traveling.

I offer vector designs, photo prints and hand-painted prints done with different materials like watercolors, pastels, Copic markers and pens and support your team in design tasks.

 

I'm open for any new exciting pattern-, print-, painting and fashion projects.

New ideas and requests are always welcome. So don't hesitate to contact me!

Sarah

 


EXPERIENCE

I studied fashion design with focus on print design at the HTW (Hochschule für Technik und Wirthschaft) in Berlin. 

2011 I graduated successfully and started to work as fashion designer for womenswear in young-fashion company in Hamburg. I gained experience in various product groups and handled the complete design process from concept idea till final production. I worked with suppliers and agencies all over the world (for example India, Indonesia, China, Turkey, Bangladesh and Pakistan) and visited them and their factories.
Prints and patterns were always  an important topic and part of the collections.

 

Strongly driven by my passion for colors and prints I decided to start to work as a freelance print designer, as these were always the jobs that fascinated me most. 

 

I have already created prints for an international spanish company and German client for women's outerwear.

WORKPROCESS

Inspiration

Every project begins with inspiration and research concerning the topic.

Design

The second step is the design process. First rough sketches lead to the final idea of the design and a whole thought through concept is established.

 

DigitIZE

Now the design becomes concrete: sketches will be digitized and optimized, other pictures will be digital manipulated and vector designs come alive.

 

Print
