Hi! This is Ruut Joensuu, a designer and an illustrator based in Helsinki.


Recent works

I was very excited to be part of the new collection organized by Annala x Young Finnish Design with my Blizzard print.


Blizzard print gets its inspiration from a happy coincidence, where the texture was created almost by itself from paper cut-outs. The print itself is quite versatile, so I can easily see it in many different applications. It is made approachable and down-to-earth, without compromising its beauty.

I had the pleasure to design an adventurous print called Aarre for Ma-ia Family. 


Aarre-print gets its inspiration from the childrens plays and their marvelous imagination. Aare-print is a magical, adventurous world; it's like a map for treasure hunt.

I designed a collection of wallpapers for Kuvatapetti.


All the prints were about nature, either bigger sceneries, or just smaller detailes, or then fuzzier surfaces.

The wallpapers can be bought through Kuvatapetti, at

I had the pleasure to design a summery flower print for Nanso, called Maruna. 


Maruna gets its inspiration from the short, yet most beautiful Nordic summer.
