About Studio Slushybrain

Studio Slushybrain is my creative side project. By day I work as a freelance designer, but by night I follow my real passion, which is making things. I love printmaking, DIY-ing, knitting, sewing and drawing - really anything else that has to do with doing things by hand. My goal is to make my making process as green as possible, using only waste materials or environmentally friendly ingredients for my products. In my packaging I strive to use as little non-recyclable materials as possible or use up scraps from my production process (like yarn scraps, cardboard and more) to make my business as zero-waste as possible.

My workshop is a colorful little room in my apartment, where all kinds of materials and tools are overflowing shelves, boxes and baskets. It is both a blessing and a curse, that Helsinki - where I am based - has some amazing ressources to shop for secondhand crafting materials. The winters here are cold and dark, but nothing is more cozy than snuggling up inside and carving a fresh block of softcut.

For now this shop is an experiment and a little free-time passion project. My hopes for the future are to take this small business a lot further and to try and make the planet a little greener with more creative ideas on how to use waste materials to make new and better things.

Shop members

  • Valentina

    Owner, Designer, Maker

    I am a multidisciplinary designer with expirience in interior, furniture, product and graphic design. I want to use design, crafts and small batch production to find new ways to turn waste materials into valuable and meaningful products.

Production partners

  • Printful

    Riga, Latvia

    Printful is my partner for printing posters on-demand. They handle printing and shipping for me. With fulfillment locations in Latvia, USA and Mexico, transportation emissions can be reduced dramatically compared to me shipping everything from Finland.
