TULIAISET

COLLECTION

 


design Antti Kalevi, 2020

Antti Kalevi got the idea for the Tuliaiset (presents brought back from trips or given by guests) design when looking at the things he had brought back with him from a trip to Tokyo: a book and magazines featuring plants and flowers.

Anti Kalevi

Antti Kalevi is an illustrator and an artist living in Helsinki, creating still life moments and playing with form and colour while maintaining a level of poetry in his works. "My aim is to create work which displays things at their bare essence–while keeping the poetry." Antti explains. 

Anti Kalevi works with many clients including Apple, Elle Italy, The New York Times, Samuji and Marimekko just to name a few. However, he decided to practice a method that Jerry Seinfeld is said to follow to avoid being overwhelmed by works for clients : he bought a wall calendar from which he'll cross each day he has produced one picture just for himself. It's a method of creating for the sake of creating, not thinking about it too much, and simultaneously developing one's skills.
