Let's continue our interviews with Juha Sjögren!

Best summer memory? Wandering around in empty town with friends.

Favorite place to travel? There’s so many place to see, but southern Laos really stuck to my mind.

How long have you been working with graphic design? Well, I first started messing around with photoshop when I was 13 year old, but for the past two years I've been practicing and trying to come up with something good.

What's your favorite area in media? Graphic design

What are your future plans? First having a job in media-sector and gaining experience, then get some kind of degree in media. When all that is behind, i think everything is open wide!

We decided to make short and casual interviews with a few amazing people that have helped us. Now is the time to introduce you to the man behind the camera, Joonas Vohlakari. 

 


 

Describe yourself with 3 words: Sleepy, crazy, kind

Where are you from? I'm originally from Pori, from where I moved to Helsinki and now I live in Turku.

What do you rather photograph: nature or people? People in nature.

Best summer memory? Epic summer of 2009, MKJ never forget.

What camera do you use? I have a Canon 5D.

The best thing about photographing? Self-expression and capturing the moment.

Favorite place to travel? I've been to London for a couple of times, it's a really nice city.

Who is your dream person/thing to photograph? Shooting a collection for JULJA haha. Any people I find interesting. Like couple of months ago I was photographing a man, who was a transvestite. Taking pictures of a stranger in his own home was new and instructive experience.

What are your future plans? IF I'm lucky, I'll start my photography studies next fall at Lahti Institute of Design and Fine Arts. Hopefully in the future photography will be a career for me!

Finally we have some time to write you a little about these past few weeks that have been everything but relaxing for us. Haha. On Wednesday 17th May we had a launch day of our Ruisrock <3 JULJA mini collection. We’ve been planning this cooperation for a while and now we’re finally able to share it for you also.

We’ve designed a few festival products in cooperation with the lovely people from Ruisrock. We had loads of ideas of which we picked a few for the execution: a tank top and a backpack. These products are available only from Ruisrock-kioski in kauppatori, Turku. So if you have a desire for these Ruisrock <3 JULJA products run quickly to Ruiskioski!

On Saturday we also had a workshop at the opening of Ruiskioski. Everyone had a chance to make their own festival shirt from old Ruisrock T-shirts for free. Our designer had created four different instructions for the workshop which are available also afterwards from Ruiskioski. (An old T-shirt with the instructions costs 5 euros.)

And hey, no launch day without a fashion show. We arranged also two mini fashion shows at the red carpet in front of Ruiskioski. It presented not only Ruisrock <3 JULJA collection but also a part of our Looking for my other whole collection, which was launched on Friday for the very first time. Wild Funky Crew also entertained us with an awesome dance routine. All of our models and dancers were once again from Dance Studio Funky. A huge thanks for all of you who made the event possible. <3

And hey, stay tuned for more Ruisrock <3 JULJA cooperation because something is still on its way ;)

Pop Together by BEdesign, JULJA & NaNi

We've been popping up at least once a month 'cause we love to see and chat with our clients face to face. This time, we organized a pop up shop in cooperation with the small dog clothing company NaNi and furniture design company BEdesign. And the place was, as usual, at our Creative Office & Showroom in Turku. 

At times there were so many people at our office that there was barely space for everyone. We had a lot of small visitors (woof woof) also and Tanja from NaNi had baked cookies for them. So, you can imagine the hustle we had here during the day. Luckily some dogs were peaceful while testing brand new beds of NaNi so we had time to eat delicious cake from Gaggui Kaffela and drink some sparkling wine! ;) And the afterparty at the Terrace Grand Opening @ Tårget was amazing! We want to thank all of our cooperation partners for this nice event.

 

ABOUT BEDESIGN:
 

BEdesign was founded by us, sisters Bette and Cilla Eklund in 2012, as a step towards realizing our passion. BEdesign has its roots deeply in the Finnish architecture, arts and design. The modern and minimalistic design is strongly influenced by nature, the purity of raw materials, and geometric forms. The starting point is to design individualistic furniture that stands out from the crowd. We put great emphasis on aesthetics, functionality as well as outstanding quality materials.

This results in a design language of ‘tomorrow’s classics’, contemporary design that stand the test of time. All products are created and manufactured in Finland. We are passionate about nature, having grown up on a farm and spent our childhood being surrounded by animals and outdoor life.

ABOUT NANI:

NaNi is a Finnish company which designs and makes clothing for small dogs. The inspiration for design has been our own small dogs and their need for clothes. The designs are first and for all comfortable for the dog to wear, without compromising appearance one bit. Our clothing suits dogs of all breeds that weigh less than 5kg (11lb).
