Noora Hattunen lives in Joensuu in Eastern part of Finland. She gets plenty of inspiration just by looking through her window as the nature is green and lush in Joensuu. As there are dozens of little birds, brown hares, hedgehogs, different kind of plants, trees and berry bushes, so Noora’s backyard nourishes her mind.
“My inspiration is a combination of my North Karelian roots, folklore, Northern nature, animals, mystics, fairy tales, moods, fragrances and dreams – all this mixed up with rich color scheme. As a designer I’m like the seven-headed dragon of fairy tales; each head is a different color and has different character.
My style is above all colourful, rich and playful. I like to use line drawings with thin lines and genereous details. My other favourite tool are watercolours as they give a more delicate atmosphere to my patterns.
I lived four years in Rovaniemi, there I studied textile design in The University of Lapland and as a result graduated as Master of Arts (MA). Besides of that I’m also an interior and furniture designer (BA), house builder and a scenery builder. I run a one-woman design office with the main business being surface and pattern design and illustrations. You are welcome to follow Zirpus Design in Facebook and Instagram.
I look forward to take over the whole world with my designs!”
