HI THERE!

I’M PAULIINA HEIKKINEN BUT YOU CAN CALL ME PALE!

I’m a 4th year graphic design student from Rovaniemi, Lapland. I study at the University of Lapland and I’m currently studying for my master’s degree in graphic design. My academic background includes a bachelors degree, where I majored in graphic design and minored in photography,  and brand design exchange studies in France at L’ecole de Design Nantes Atlantique.

I’d say I’m a well-rounded designer, who also loves different fields of design whether it is movies, fashion or interior design. That is also where I often draw new ideas and inspiration to my graphic design and illustration work.

In my free time I like to geek out to movies and tv-shows, cook good food and kick back with a good podcast.
