Stickers + empty cartons = fire trucks!
Why not turn packaging into simple toys?
Reusable stickers, printed on 100% recycled, uncoated paper, via Box Play for Kids, mentioned previously on Unconsumption here.
Great idea. When I was a kid we did a barbie kitchen from milk cartons. Then again, do kids need ready made stickers for this, maybe they just need someone to give therm an idea, pack of markers and cartons?
"Kaikki palvelumuotoilussa ei siis ole uutta menetelmien ja työkalujen osalta. Uutta on se tapa, jolla jo olemassa olevia menetelmiä voidaan hyödyntää niin, että yhteissuunnittelu on mahdollista. Muotoilija saa usein tehtäväkseen tuoda myös muiden luovuuden esiin ja kannustaa menetelmien avulla yhteissuunnitteluun. Palvelua tuottavilla tai käyttävillä henkilöillä on aina paras ja konkreettisin tieto sen toimivuudesta. Muotoilijan erityistä ammattitaitoa on tulkita nämä tarpeet ja toiveet ja muuttaa ne visuaaliseen tai aistittavaan muotoon."

Disorganize Your Days is a time management concept in a form of four different postcards and a poster. It is designed for one of my friends, who stuffed her days too full of happenings and wished to get more time for herself. You can use them as a page of calendar or as a reminder in the wall. The cards and posters are sold in design and lifestyle shop Fox&Rabbit, which is located in Helsinki.
This is my combined blog and web portfolio, which is work in progress. It´s a gradual process and you can also see it as a story of becoming a designer. Or maybe not! It´s also possible that I´ll end up travelling around the world or starting a business as a vet. You´ll never know.
I am a almost there- BA Textile designer from Helsinki, who is really much into service design and co-creation.

The basis on my thesis work is a library trend forecast of my own, I´ll post best parts from it for you soon.
The Nest is spatial and social art piece. It is designed for the new theatre house in Copenhagen. The project was inspired by field study in Skuespilhuset, where I observed the way people used space and their relations to each other during one day.
The Nest gathers people and invites to small space between dimensions. Transparent materials polyamide and polypropylene with airy knitted structure creates a place in between. The space is for cultural minded individuals, who may enter theatre house as architecture tourist, customer or with larger group.
