Hello! I'm Mari Huhtanen (she/her), an illustrator, graphic designer and animator. Together with my husband we work in our studio Kilda in Helsinki. I enjoy drawing people in various everyday situations. I mainly work digitally using the vector drawing program Adobe Illustrator. I communicate in English and Finnish.
In new projects I create a mood board to get a glimpse into the client's mind, what they like and dislike. After a pencil sketch I draw a clean version in Illustrator. The colors and details go through another round of fine-tuning. The process, including comments, usually takes a week or two.
I do a lot of illustrations for public organizations, for whom diversity in the illustrations is an absolute must.
I enjoy adding movement to my illustrations through animation.
