Welcome to Mervi's art, illustration and logo design studio.

Mainly inspired by nature, space, fantasy and weird stuff, I create you quirky illustrations, distinct logos and fun patterns. My professional background is in graphic design, mainly concentrating on web and brands.

While I'm drawn to simplicity I cannot resist getting a bit unhealthily obsessed with details. The colour palette varies from simple black and white to bold and vivid colours. Depending on the needs of the design.

My current interest is creating digital paintings and combining different styles and techniques in them. However, I don't shy away from a simple pencil and paper, or other more traditional media.
