Susanna Hoikkala works with product, graphic and pattern design. She has studied art history and printmaking, and it is from there her interest towards surface design originates.
Between 2006 and 2010 Susanna worked as a design entrepreneur, and hence as a freelancer. She is a customer oriented designer, whose products in production are mostly kitchenware and items for home decoration. Pattern design fascinates Susanna mainly because its fast tempo, which gives more freedom to experiment and room for expression.
In her spare time Susanna likes to enjoy the blinding winter sun or the summery evenings on the sauna terrace, watching the constantly changing sea.
