I’m Laura, the designer behind Kukka, a Rotterdam-based textile & surface design studio. Through prints and patterns I help brands and businesses captivate their audience. With over 10 years worth of pattern passion and expertise, I aim to make the world a little prettier. Not just aesthetically but also socially and sustainably.

I aim to offer the best type of pattern for each surface

The Process

step by step

1. The Talk

In a (virtual) coffee chat we discuss your wishes, the possibilities and deadlines to ensure we are a natural fit. I am excited to hear all about you, your brand, and your goals.

2. Proposal

Shortly after, you receive a non-committal quote and plan by e-mail so you can review the costs and outline of the project. It helps if you state your budget beforehand.

3. Accept?

When you accept this quote (via e-mail), the creative process will start as agreed. Depending on the scope of the project a deposit will be made upfront.

4. First Sketches

Depending on the number of test designs we agreed on, you’ll receive the amount of designs through e-mail in a PDF file or we’ll meet in person if you’re local.

5. Let’s Choose

Take your time to review the sketches and tell me which one(s) you’d like me to develop further.

6. Feedback

Depending on how many feedback rounds we agreed on in the proposal, this is the time to give your comments so I can adjust the designs to your wishes.

7. Final Design

After the feedback, I finalise the design, put it in (technical) repeat if necessary and send it to you for a final check.

8. It’s a Wrap!

After your approval of the final design, I’ll send you the invoice for the (remaining) payment and the editable design files will be delivered via WeTransfer.

I stay updated on your final product results and help where possible.


it’s nice to know where you stand, right?
