hi, this is about kaja merle

Kaja Merle is a freelance illustrator, excels at turning colors into moods and mending shapes into new realities.

She’s designed key visuals for the Monte-Carlo Casino, worked on characters for Malwarebytes, created patterns for Sephora campaigns and illustrated bags for DM. 


She grew up in a small town in Germany with a grandma in Florida. 

Currently she resides in Hamburg, usually drenched in rain. 


She’s a - summer during winter- type of girl and is calling a beach (remember that grandma?) her 2nd home. 

She gets lost in book-worlds, is knitting whenever not otherwise occupied and rollerskates on the weekends. 

She can't keep an organised drawer, but she's a visual creator, color champion and and an expert when it comes to solving a brief.
