Tsau blog! Long time no see *pikk aeg pole näha*! Olen elus, aga uus aasta algas keeruliselt – küll palju tööd, küll palju jändamist korteriga mis suvel soetasin, küll Kostiku tervis pole see mis kutsikana, küll teeb tegusaks ka selline semi-uusaasta lubadus mis endale andsin ehk varasemast rohkem öelda välja mis mul peas toimub ja tegeleda nende teemadega. Mitte, et mul muidu sellega probleem oleks, aga tahaks kuidagi iga mööduva hetkega eemalduda teemadest mis ei paku huvi ja süveneda olulisse. Samas lõbutsema peab ka, nii, et siit tulevad mustvalge filmikaamera fotod päevast mil Tuul Care tõi meile koju suure toodetega paki, paar kaamerat, kokteilimaterjale ja ütles, et asuge möllama.

Nobedam stalker silmab ka igasuguseid detaile mu kodust, nagu isedisainitud kardinad, oot-oot diivan ja David Bowie portreed.

Tuulest aga, annan ausa hinnangu, et šampoon mulle meeldib ja sobib. Lõhn on eriti mõnus, nagu kallimat sorti meeste lõhnaõli ja meeste lõhnad mulle meeldivad. Kui juuksed on eelnevalt korralikult kammitud, siis ei pane selle järel isegi palsamit. Pakend meeldib ka väga, graafilise disaini seisukohalt kindlasti kõige kenam eesti kosmeetika toode. Madisel jällegi so-so, kuna ta vihkab juuste kammimist, siis pigem kasutab hoopis naistele mõeldud siluvaid šampoone ja palsameid. Aga eks olgem ausad, meil on vannitoas seinast seina kraami.

Aga ühesõnaga, minu arvates väga tore mõte – pildistada filmile, üllatuda tulemustest.

Hello blog! Long time no see! I’m alive, but the new year started kind of rough(ly). I’ve been working a lot, also having troubles with an apartment that I bought, Kostja’s health is sadly sliding down, also I sort of made a new years resolution to be more blunt and straightforward with my passions and self-expression. Not that I had a problem with that before. Just with each passing day, I want less bullshit and more realness. At the same time we must not forget to have fun, so here’s a gallery of me and Madis shooting each other for the Tuul Care who came to our doorstep one day with a package of products, disposable cameras, cocktail materials and a request to mess around.

By the way, the stalkiest stalkers may also take a look at my place and see some curtains that I designed, some David Bowie pictures on the wall and an oot-oot sofa, that’s my home.

The verdict to the Tuul Care shampoo. I personally enjoy it. I like the manly perfumish smell, as I like eau de homme smells in general. On the shampooing side, it works well too, just make sure to comb your hair first. For example, I comb it thoroughly, shampoo it and don’t use any conditioner (when using Tuul). On the other side, Madis hates to comb and prefers stronger haircare routine with a lot of conditioning. But we have loads of different cosmetics in our bathroom and experiment a lot.

Anyways. It was a cool idea to shoot on film and get some surprising results!

Mul on selline tunne, et kusagil Kiehl’si peakontoris töötab minu teisik, sest aastast aastasse valivad nad oma jõulukoostöödeks minu lemmik-illustraatoreid. Eelmine kord siis Jeremy Ville kellega mul õnnestus tänavu Iirimaal disainikonverentsil tutvuda ja bondida ning seekord Kate Moross kelle piltide üle olen aastaid instagramis ilastanud.

Igastahes selline tuus kalender ja meigikotid ja jõulu-leibelid ning eritooted, saadaval ka Eestis muidugi, ilumaailmas.

Rohkem koostöid disaineritega kulla kaubamärgid, nii tuusad tulemused!

I feel like somewhere in the Kiehl’s main office works my clone or twin as year after year they collab with my most favorite illustrators! Last year it was Jeremy Ville who I absolutely love and got to personally meet and bond with him recently in Ireland at The Future conference (super awesome dude) and this year it’s Kate Moross whom I’ve adored on instagram for forever.

Anywho, an awesome advent calendar and cosmetic bags and christmas labels and products, also in Estonia of course.

Dear brands, look at this and take a note, working with illustrators rocks :)

Nagu kauni-roosa-flamingo-kimono fotolt paistab, oleme Taneliga nelja aastaga juba väikestviisi visuaalselt meenutamas vana abielupaari, tegelikult oleme abielus hoopis Kunstiakadeemiaga ja neljandat aastat veame aksessuaarikursust mille raames disaini magistrandid nullist pakendini ühe Eesti disaintoote välja mõtlevad ja valmis toodavad. Eelduseks müüdavus, tiražeerimine, skandinaavialik stiil, sihtgrupi analüüs, logo ja pakend ja lõpuboss näituse läbiviimine. Tänavune näitus-müük asub Tali disainipoes Kotzebue 33 majas ja eriti tuusaks teeb KÄEATLAS näituse see, et iga tööd esitlevad töö loonud disaineri käte keraamiline replika, täiesti päris koopia nende endi kätest, sellise tuusa ekspositsiooni eest oli omakorda vastutav andekas Sigrid Maria Luitsalu, kes kõik need käed valmis tegi. Samuti täiega tuusa postri ja graafilised visuaalid tegi meie väljamaa tudeng Hansel Tai. Ja veel tahaks südamest tänada Tali perenaist Triinu Tiiselit, selle eest, et ta meid juba teist aastat kodustab ja oma disainpoodi noorte disainerite loomet müüki võtab. Paljude nimekate kohalike disainerite jaoks on oma turunduslik teekond alanud just Talist ja see on suur asi omaette.

Näitus on väljas 9 juunini, ärge istuge pepu otsas, näitusele näitusele (ja kõike saab osta ka).
As you can see from this pink-flamingo-infused-kimono photograph, I and Tanel are slowly starting to look like an old married couple, 4 years of teaching design MA students accessories course makes us married indeed but to the Estonian Academy of Arts. Our students build a Scandinavian, sellable, target group oriented product & package from idea to the reality and present it with a badass exhibition each spring. This year the sale-exhibit takes place in Tali design shop at Kotzebue 33 Tallinn & it’s called HAND ATLAS. The name has its roots within the hands that are holding the works at the exhibition, each work held by a ceramic replica of its designer’s actual hands. The hands are made by one of our amazingly talented students Sigrid Maria Luitsalu. I’d also like to give an applause to our student Hansel Tai for creating such awesome graphic design materials. And last but not least, the lady of the Tali house, Triinu Tiisel has been truly inspirational and welcoming for the second year in a row already. Taking in new designers, making space to sell Estonian design and trusting new talent, it’s a big deal for all of us & many known designers has started off in Tali.

The show is opened until June 9, raise your butts and enjoy the designs (buy some too).
