    Typical swirls and floral elements are sketched with stringy white silicone and Weber brings life to the repetitive lines that serve as the foundation of a traditional carpet. Displayed on the grounds of vaulted rooms, or sprawled across wood and stone, the white whorls make a dramatic impact. The symbolical reference of her silicone rugs is that they reflect the clash between East and West that she has experienced in her life.

    The bold monochromatic application across this ID system gives off a feeling of great confidence and is typical of the work of Designers Anonymous as a whole. It not only has individual value but is united by a cohesiveness that makes great use of graphic design.

    “Fast turnarounds appeal to me; I like the idea of not working on something for a long time. I work quickly – for most of my projects at least, the initial composition stage is completed in one day, so it gets a bit stale if I work on it for too long.”

    “In my work I explore freedom, friendship, loneliness, solitude, happiness, guilt, shame, because those themes are close to my heart. But I’m a commercial illustrator so when I get an assignment I just try to be funny and to the point because that’s what I reckon I’m good at.”

    “Illustration is about problem-solving. How is it possible to create something minimal, but still make it appear rich and detailed? The process is both highly organic as well as strategic. Each illustration is a puzzle in a way; colour, form and line need to be put together correctly. I want the result to look fluid, but also to have hierarchy and order.”

    “If you are working on a piece about a famous figure, then it is really important that you get a good likeness. That is the whole point of the image and everything else is just additional. Once you’ve got that, then you can enhance it with colours and atmosphere to create an arresting piece – something with an edge, something worthwhile and different from just using photography.”

    “My love of minimalism was sparked by books. I read a lot and I take immense pleasure from books as objects in themselves. I found that I loved the ones that are designed in a very minimal style, not emphasising graphic elements but rather the texture, the quality of the paper, the typography, good colour and harmony.”

    “It doesn’t matter where you are from and in which country you work, all the best agencies and designers work smoothly globally and are wanted because of their talent and unique approach. One could even query whether a special category for Finnish design is relevant in this context. Inspiration and influences come from all over the world. Talented people move without a problem across the globe to find a design community or agency that best suits their values, processes and goals.”

    “Good design can be considered as smart design. If design provokes an emotional reaction, then its idea and purpose has been successfully communicated. Having the power to turn anything that is banal and lifeless into something that will generate an emotional response and reach people is what I enjoy most about design.”

    “Minimalism is something hard to understand but easy to say. Like the word ‘love’, just four letters that can mean so many different things. Minimalism is a sort of unconventional language where you reduce the use of words, like poetry. It’s a sort of mental idea where you decide to reduce the use of words to describe a word.”

    “From a general point of view, the Canadian and US design scenes are quite similar. As in the United States, we are capable of creating intelligent and innovative design, but the worst outcomes are also possible for both of them. In Montreal we sometimes lack audacity, but I think that the calibre of designers here is really high and full of promise for the future.”

    “There’s nothing more fulfilling than to be able to use my talents to inspire, motivate, create awareness, help solve problems that affect our society, bring people together and simply make people feel better with a typographic dose of positivity and reality.”
