—Illustrator and Pattern Designer
Minni Havas is a designer and illustrator, based in Helsinki. Her background in fashion design can be seen in her work, which often influences from trends and pop culture. Her signature style as an illustrator is very realistic but her textiles are more stylized and abstact. Unexpected color combinations, nature and art in general inspires her. “I´m interested in the feeling and the story of the artwork. My work often moves somewhere in the borderlands of the real and the imaginary”, says Minni.
When designing a new pattern Minni intuitively follows her vision. With the vision Minni is capturing a certain atmosphere. Zeniitti pattern was originally designed to be a part of a bigger picture, but the elements and direction fell into place and became it’s own pattern. In Zeniitti you can see the characters of the sun and horizon.
