Shinie design is a project name for all the things I do. I draw, paint, and sell the products I design, print and craft by hand.
My dream is to grow this business to an international brand that sells lifestyle products beyond just paper products, and I also wish to do my illustrations for international clients.
I personally think that the best gift you can give to someone is something unique and different. That is why I believe that even though they say paper post is dying, a lot of people will still appreciate a nicely designed, fun and different products.
I am a graphic designer and an illustrator living in Vaasa, Finland. Since I was little I have been fascinated by art and design, and this passion has led me to a career in graphic design. After a few years of specializing in digital marketing and web design I decided it was finally time to chase my life-long dream of being a professional illustrator. I set up my own business and here we are!
I have a degree in visual arts and I am also a bachelor in Business administration. I am working on my master's thesis in Technical communications and marketing. In addition to all this studying I have worked as a graphic designer in a local agency for over five years. Now I design my own products, do illustrations and work as a graphic designer on the side.
