PäiviMVIN THE PROCESS OF CREATION I TAKE A LOOK DEEP INSIDE – TO MYSELF AND YOU

I am Päivi Talvikki Partanen (born 1977), Oulu-based design professional.

My educational background is diverse and interdisciplinary. The Master of Arts studies from the University of Lapland have brought to me artistic and scientific sophistication. I have majored in clothing design, but I have studied widely in the field of art, including fine arts, graphic design and art history. In addition, I have studied pedagogy and psychology.

My design philosophy is in-depth research, in which I take the history and the present with as great interest as the cooperation of the body and the mind. The main focus of my design is the story, which derives from the authenticity of the story. I have a broad experience in different areas of design. I have worked as a costume designer in promotional videos and short films, designed logos and corporate identities as well as created jewelry and product design for brands and businesses.
