See on︎︎︎ Helsinki Design Week  
Pieces of Hope is a two-day event that combines an exhibition, talks, and live music. The event covers the themes of mental health, creativity, and nightlife and the multifaceted relationship between them. Showcased at the iconic nightclub Kaiku in the middle of Kallio district. The exhibition consists of nine unique posters on the aforementioned themes created by invited artists. Each poster has a limited edition of 25 pieces.




Growing Pains

Animation & illustration

Animated video based on Mall Grab’s Growing Pains.
Animation, illustration and narrative by Amy Gelera.







The contemporary chitchat poster ︎︎︎
My starting past point was OZ magazine's cover designed in 1967 by Richard Neville.
Oz magazine was regularly censored or even banned; during the brief time it existed, several trials were filed against it for obscenity. I was baffled by the realisation (ha! not) that we still need this sort of outlet it current times – adapted to current absurd chit-chat.






Concrete Dystopia

Illustration & animation


Sticker Zine (A5 format):
Digitally printed stickers, plotter cut.
Black screen-printed poster.
Black riso-printed bellyband.



The concrete dystopia zines contain 12 different stickers that visually protest against problems and situations that are a consequence of society’s actions. These monochrome stickers were inspired by the absurd aspects of our society and the way we feel powerless against them. It takes advantage of the sticker format with the purpose of being easily spread all around our urban surroundings. The zine gives us the ability to mildly vandalise and protest against the underlying dystopia we live through every day.

Fluid 6 ⤴

Branding and packaging, 3D modelling


This is a fictional bottle, clearly. It plays with the concept of harvesting water from other places within our reach when Earth runs out of drinkable water after global warming and contamination take over the natural resources on our birth planet. You might think this is a pessimistic product, but actually, the idea itself is based on the fact that humans might be advanced enough to actually travel to the rings of Saturn and harvest Ice from them; so overall it might even be considered over optimistic. The idea of it all came with the freedom of creating a fictional brand, the only restriction was: ‘it must be a glass water bottle.’ At first, I thought of the phrase we so often see: ‘water on Mars’. The eternal search of water on other planets might be scary, and I decided to take the human fear of going ‘homeless’ and brand it into an extraterrestrial water bottle, with the hope of being part of the constant wake up call.

✺ Graphic Design 

This series of Riso printed posters is part of a project study, Other Pasts. This project required deep involvement with different sources of archives. The final result came in the form of an exhibition.

Text by Kaisa Lassinaro (Visual Communication Design designer-in-residence): Other Pasts has been turning on the archive, finding clues and hints, recycling the past and making it anew, sensing their way across many o’formats of uncoated paper sheets, resting their eyes in wonder on the brighter than the sun inks, coming across the wonders of Kontula (open for those who know how to look), awed by the imagination in the smuggled drawings of the red prisoners and the feeling embedded in pioneer children’s fanzines.

Featured in Local 
Local is a collage of academic poetics examining the theme of localities, particularly in the context of graphic design and visual communication. What do we consider local, here, exactly—either literally or conceptually?
