Noora Hattunen’s inspiration is a combination of her 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 she likes to describe herself as the seven-headed dragon of fairy tales; each head is in different color and has different character.
Noora’s style is above all colorful, rich and playful. She likes to use line drawings with thin lines and generous details. Her other favourite tool are watercolors as they give a more delicate atmosphere for patterns.
Noora lived four years in Rovaniemi, there she studied textile design in The University of Lapland and as a result graduated as Master of Arts (MA). Now she has settled to Joensuu, and runs various projects in several fields of design.
