Goth – Hippie

I’ve been finally working for last couple of weeks for Natja K. Ethical Collection website besides of drawing. I decided to leave this outfit out from the collection, because it is too different from other outfits.

For doing Ethical Collection website there was over 50 photos, where I had to do “cleaning” to the background. The wall behind model was dirty after graffiti tags, which hadn’t got off in the washing process of the wall, but it was anyway the best option for the outfit photoshoot last July. That “mechanical” work wasn’t my favorite job and invented about half year to do something quicker and more interesting Photoshop work. Now it is finally done and I’m working with layout and coding of Natja K. Ethical Collection website. I will launch it during next couple of weeks.

I have already written a blog post about making the hat of this outfit over year ago. Jacket is remade from long winter coat and I “covered” brown parts of the fabric with black leather remnants. I have called leftovers to this collection as remnants, because most of them were nearly chaff size pieces of materials.

Trousers are made of green brocade from Helsinki City Theatre’s second hand sale, what was many years ago. This outfit was very “forced” to do, because I needed to do skirt or trousers to have whole outfit and I’m not myself into those trousers at all. Gothic style top is my favorite piece in this outfit. It is made of the shirt bought from Fida L√§hetystori second hand shop and details of the top are made of different recycled materials. Cargican is also made from recycled materials.

Ok, this post was like promise to lauch eventually Natja K. Ethical Collection website some day in future.

Korkeasaari Zoo

I went to take photos of living animals to Helsinki Zoo last week after visiting in Natural History Museum earlier this month. Finnish name of Helsinki Zoo is Korkeasaari, what is the name of the island where the zoo is situated.

It was partly cloudy, partly sunny and very windy winter day when I went to Korkeasaari. I was dressed to my warmest winter coat and there’s possibility to keep yourself warm spending time inside Amazonia house, where’s tropical circumstances. So spending about four hours in Korkeasaari in winter was cheery experience and I didn’t get too cold at all. Most importantly I got quite nice photos of the animals.

In the winter there’s some animals you can’t see like bears, which are sleeping their hibernation. This time monkey house was closed because of renovation, but all the other animals were possible to see. I have applied several times to graphic designer’s positions for different places in Helsinki City including Korkeasaari and there has always been 100-150 appliers. I wanted to show my interest towards Korkeasaari by taking photos and making logo types for animals by using fonts, what reflects their appearance and characters.

You can check all the photos, what I took from Korkeasaari and Hylkysaari, island next to Korkeasaari from my Flickr account.

Valentine’s Day 2015

 

valentines2_800

I took a couple of hours for doing some laid-back, not so serious graphic design for Valentine’s Day.

I noticed that I do mostly that kind retouching work with Photoshop, that the less the work hours shows the better. So I thought that I do relaxed graphic design where the use of Photoshop shows for a change. Inspiration for doing Valentine’s Day topic graphic design came from free fonts with hearts.

I searched yesterday some quotes and freebies, what fits with the font styles. Punk style Valentine’s greeting is made with Picsart mobile app by using cliparts for Valentine’s Day. The photo of sprayed electricity tank used as background image has been taken a couple of weeks back in Korkeavuorenkatu, Helsinki. Sweet Valentine’s Day 2015 with these greetings to all!
