A Vancouver-based designer Petra Kaksonen has more than 20 years of graphic design and art direction experience in working with clients in Europe and North America.
Petra grew up in Finland, where she spent her childhood putzing around in Marimekko polkadots and stripes – clothes made by her fashion-forward, feisty Karelian grandmother – igniting a deep passion for bold patterns and textiles. Her teen years were spent traveling around the world and especially her time in Japan and Africa left a lasting impression.
In the heart of every projects, there are great people with a strong vision; Petra believes in fostering long-term partnerships and collaborations with global partners – creating together well-loved, beautiful everyday products.
Petra's work has been published in several publications, including Better Homes & Garden, and Vancouver Sun. If you are looking for a creative collaborator or are interested in partnerships and licensing, come say hello!
