Hello! I'm Teija Vartiainen (b. 1985), a print and textile designer based in Helsinki. I have completed MA degree programme in Fashion and Collection Design at the Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture. My expertise is in print and textile design for fashion and interior industries.

Since 2012 I have designed prints through an agency mainly to Scandinavian, European, and Japanese companies. I enjoy working with my three different styles: moody digital collages, playful hand-drawn stories, and sophisticated abstract surfaces. Especially my handcrafted all-over surfaces and digital collages have been bestsellers, due their versatility and unique first-hand materials collected during inspiration trips. My personal guideline is to maintain an honest, sensitive, and curious mindset towards new.

Currently I'm available for freelance projects, as well as open for new career opportunities in Europe, especially in the Netherlands. I'm a member of Eyes on Talents platform for talent in visual creative disciplines, and the EOT profile is available on request for recruiters. However, if you would like to meet for viewing, my works are available in tangible format too, containing research, originals, and material samples.
