As you may have noticed I have a thing for handmade stuff, crafts and such. Therefore I like a lot the exhibition space for handmade goods called papernstitch. The site features and promotes hand picked handmade products, stuff such as these funny Apple-a-go-gos. The products include short info and easy links for easy purchase. Awesome for sellers, neat for buyers. There's also a very interesting blog, which is...

The redesign of the website for Crêpes, a summer time café located to Helsinki Market Square, has been long overdue. In between of other stuff to do I finally took some time to work with it. Because the site is very small I wanted the design also be minimal, yet warm and sort of soft. The site is still a bit under construction, but the main idea is already visible. Some design features may change as well as there's...

Typography, fonts, lettering, typecases... The way the text looks makes a big difference on how the whole design looks. Typography can be used without any other graphical elements for making a design look great. Many minimal web designs are based on the way the headers, footers and content text looks. This is what I Love Typography (or ILT) is all about. The layout is based on typography, few colors and loads of...

Redesigned Tomato Branch once again. The whole thing begun when I decided to try Photoshop CS5 Extended and messed around with the TB logo. This messing around resulted to the renewed version of the logo. Which led me to rethink the whole look of the site. I like the color green, so I went with a lot of green. As usual, the handmade style has followed, at least a little. Some details won't work on all browsers (...

Lately it has felt like all sorts of delicious recipes have been everywhere. Blogs are filled with droolable food photography to make a hungry person even hungrier. Don't you agree? One of the worst hunger creators is honey & jam, a blog filled with yummy recipes enhanced with even yummier photos. I'd love to try Zucchini Cheddar Bread. Would you care some Coconut Bars, maybe? The layout of the site is...

Oops, I did it again. This time Tomato Branch looks like... This. Yet again I went for the handmade style. To complete the look, I used Worn and Torn Edges, even if everyone else use them. No shame, no shame at all. As always, some things may or may not change throughout the time. If something doesn't work or looks weird (like really, really weird), do tell me in comments, use the contact or throw me with an @ on...

The passing away of Miku yesterday changed this weeks plans for The site of Tuesday. I had this dream in which I thought Miku was gone. But when I opened the door of my parents' house to check if Juuso the cat would like to come in, Miku jumped in, alive and happy. To honor all the cats that are still in or have passed through my life, I decided to showcase Meowoodle, a Tumblr blog featuring beautiful drawings,...

If you are looking for Japanese Washi Tape, crafty stamps or other little things for your handmade projects, have a look at cu·te·ta·pe (pronounced koo-teh-tah-pee). Texas based cu·te·ta·pe sells all sorts of adorable things and the prices aren't that scary either. Besides when I contacted the store to ask about something, promptly I received a nice and polite answer. The site itself is very cute and crafty. It's...
