Vancouver-based designer and art director Petra Kaksonen



A Vancouver-based designer Petra Kaksonen designs custom art prints and surface patterns for home textiles and products with a Nordic-inspired simplicity and flair.


With more than 20 years of graphic design and art direction experience in working with clients in Europe and North America, Petra works together with global partners creating high-quality, long-lasting products and textiles for modern homes and spaces.

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 studying textiles left a lasting impression.

Petra's work has been published in several publications, including Better Homes & Garden, Vancouver Sun and Vitality Magazine. If you are looking for a creative collaborator or are interested in partnerships and licensing, come say hello!
