LIS PIKKORAINEN

photographer, designer, blogger etc 

My name is Lis and I'm a 24-year-old graphic designer whose alma mater is Tartu Art School. At the moment I'm a graphic designer by day and blogger by night. I live in Tallinn with my awesome partner and two siamese cats - Kissa and Miu-Mau.

Lost in designs is my blog, which considers everything that I fancy – from design to everything else. I appreciate minimalist style, which is judiciously made. My work is mostly minimalist, with strong typography. I get inspiration from everything surrounding, but if that’s not enough, I turn to the amazing internet websites dedicated to design. I'm fond of Scandinavian design – the interior design as well as print media. Ideally, I would work as a freelance designer and dedicate myself to Lost in Design (but I'm not brave enough, yet) - in this situation I would write daily updates on fresh design news while doing design work with greater love.

Besides design, I'm interested in photography and cinematography. In photography, I have archived acknowledgement in photo competitions such as second place in “Nuori kamera” 2011, 17th place in “Baltic Wedding and Portrait Photography Contest” 2011, Suurkilpailu Aktiivisarja 11-20th place in 2012 and Suurkilpailu Aktiivisarja 4-10th place in 2013. And I appreciate such film directors as Krzysztof Kieslowski and Roy Andersson.
