ANNIKA TOIJANEN

Artist and Designer


Hi,

My name is Annika Toijanen and I´m an open-minded, driven and structured Artist and Designer with a vivid imagination and a humble approach to life. Equipt with great design skills aquired during my BFA in Industrial Design and working hard on improving them even more during my now on-going MFA at Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm.

Prior to my studies I have 25 years of documented work experience in Human Resource Management, Project Management and Financial work, experiences that I know I will have great use of in my future career path as well.  

I enjoy variation in everything I do. For instance to mix my individual projects with team-work and digital work with more hands on assignements in the workshop.  The opportunity to mix my creativity between my paper art, crafts and design work is a privilege I really love. You can see and read more about what I create here.

I hope you have enjoyed looking through my website and please do not hesitate to contact me with any enquiries you may have, ideas for collaborations and other future business opportunities.


Wishing you all a creative day!

/Annika
