I am Tea Kuikko, a graphic designer and an entrepreneur at Kuviopaja. I love British humor, Sunday Mornings and lemon curd toast.
I am specialized in designing visual identities and love to play with colors and shapes.
Eyes see and feel a great deal – more than words can convey. Graphic design is sensuous – it’s about what we feel when we touch a surface: paper, cloth or a bottle of shampoo.
I take in smells and tastes also when not at work. How does the forest smell, what it feels like to take a dip in an ice-cold lake. Idleness is also very important: both at work and at leisure. Something may or may not come out of idleness.
I dance twice a week. Inner corset and basics are damned important. It’s good to get your feet off the ground every now and again and just let go.
Same applies to graphic design.
