    “A logo is just a signature. It’s not a brand. As designers, we create visual tools for a client to tell a story with. A brand nowadays is more about creating a behaviour and atmosphere that people can relate to. This way of thinking is quite new in our work as designers, I think.”

    “With portraiture, facial expression really is everything. I love the more comical, over-the-top approach. The look on someone’s face sets the tone for the entire image, right from the early rough sketches. It’s essential for re-enforcing the mood or subject of the article.”

    “Beautiful colour combinations are one of my biggest influences and can be the whole starting point to an illustration or a design piece. I like to take snapshots of colour combos and use them later in my work. I like to draw my inspiration from things that aren’t from my own field and I also think the fact that I work in both illustration and graphic design shows – when I illustrate, I like to get inspired by graphic design, and vice versa.”

    “Love is the main driving force for becoming a good graphic designer and what I like about being a professional designer is the opportunity if affords to come into contact with beautiful things and their creators. Applying more love in your design than anyone else is the ‘golden ticket’ to becoming a successful designer.”

    'Bridges Over The Vistula' is not a typical memory game – its pairs are not identical, but well-known cultural duos such as Batman and The Joker, Darth Vader and Luke, Dr. Watson and Sherlock Holmes, illustrated on playing-type cards.

    Learning written Chinese is a daunting task for foreigners, requiring a knowledge of several thousand characters to achieve basic literacy (although the language itself has many tens of thousands). Telling them apart and memorising them all will take the average Chinese schoolkid half a dozen years, so goodness knows how long it could take a part-time non-Chinese student.

    “I love working from a written piece because my brain naturally starts forming visual images. My notes give me a platform to be able to think more deeply about possible ideas. I’m always in my own head, thinking about something.”

    “Finland is a great place for immersing successful designers, maybe because of its lack of beaches and good surfing spots! Well, at least the long winters provide us with ample time to spend indoors brooding over designs and plans and ideas. There is a long history of functional and rather minimalist design in Finland, but where does the creative energy stem from? I have to admit that that still remains somewhat of a mystery to me.”
