Moving Image

Lately I’ve been very into moving image. Especially lo-fi techniques like animated gifs.

Presentation on Web Design Trends

A former colleque, Haaga Helia alumni and friend, project head Ilkka Martio was asked to give a presentation at a networking event for Haaga Helia in Pasila, Finland. He asked me to come up with the visual aesthetic for his presentation, a part of the traditional “Roots and Wings” themed event held as for the alumni of Marketing and Corporate Communications. The event mainly focused on visual storytelling and current trends.

Creative & Stuff

creative_and_stuff
As a little side project, DT Studio has teamed up with software engineer Rushil Dave to form a power-duo that offer web and mobile services for the masses. DT and mr. Dave are hard at work on the new collab and have we have created these illustrations as a little teaser to show what we’ve been up to. The site itself is still in the works and we’re taking our sweet little time with it and mostly working on client projects in the meantime.

The mission is to make good products that work intuitively, mobile and web content, social media campaigns and the like.

We’re constantly on the lookout for more talent – anyone interested in collaborating in client/art/pro bono projects should get in touch with DT.

Site refurb

site_drawing
Just completed a refurb for the site. The administrative functions started to be rather dated. On the frontend, I had a tired looking website that was in much need of improvement. The backend, running WordPress was very old, so posting and general mainatanance started to be a task and a half.

After studying what’s out there I arrived to the current design. The main focus was on user experience for both the web and mobile platforms. So, the obvious choice was to go for a responsive layout. I also wanted to experiment with a lot of things and I’m sure with some feedback I make the usability of the site even better. At a quick glance, things seem to work fine cross the most popular browsers and I will continue to rework the site and make it crossbrowser compatible and and enjoyable to use.

So, if you have any comments about the site, please, as usual feel free to comment. Thanks!

New Home Address, New Studio Space

I and hence the studio, moved to a new location recently. The space is starting to take shape and I’ve set up shop and working mostly on small commissioned projects. I’m still surronded by boxes from the move and I can’t help but notice how dead it looks in the neighbourhood. In the evenings you can hear the ocean!!! I guess it’s nice though.

I think the new apartment works great as a home-office. The walls are brilliant white and there’s a decorative pillar in the living room. I’ve hung up some posters I did way back for some colour and sat some Matryoshka nesting dolls on top of the bookshelf.

I’ve already taken a habit of taking a walk to the beach and work on my sketches. I’ll blog about those at some point when I havea a chance to scan them in.
