Brochure for cleaning services

Pirjo worked in an office position for almost thirty years – until one day she decided that it was time for a change. She had always been passionate about baking, cooking and housework, and now she was going to help others with those chores.

Main logo

The logo design was inspired by the idea of traditional handicrafts. The curvy mark got its shape from knitting and is a symbol for on-going movement.

Logotype forms a circle around the logo symbol in the company's main logo. Sub-brands use the same symbol but have logotypes of their own.

Brand colors consist of different tones of blue

Blue is not only the iconic for Finland but also locally significant. The village Pirjo Jurva was born and raised and started her company in, is divided in two by the river Kemi. Kemi river is the longest river in Finland and bears meaning for the people in Tervola. Blue also happens to be Pirjo's favourite colour.

The company's brand pattern Herkku  ("Delicacy") features small drawings of the various salty and savoury treats Pirjo Jurva provides for her customers. Minimalistic and humorous icons illustrate the brand's identity: easily approachable and always hand made.

I helped Pirjo with packing up her products and wrote all copy to the sites

Big part of the website was the copy that took time to produce thoroughly.

Pirjo designs and produces handmade, ecological tools for traditional Finnish baking. 

For storing the items home I designed bags made of ecological cotton.

"Odotus on päättynyt! Leipomisen lomassa syntynyt idea kasvoi syksyn aikana kokonaiseksi tuoteperheeksi ja sille omistetuksi verkkokaupaksi. Pirjon suunnittelemat ja Jannen käsin valmistamat tuotteet ovat tervolalaista osaamista parhaimmillaan – alusta loppuun käsin valmistettuja ja yksilöllisiä. Perinteistä leivontaa ja ruoanlaittoa kunnioittavat tuotteemme nyt saatavilla uudesta verkkokaupastamme osoitteesta www.pirjojurva.fi – sieltä siis persoonalliset joululahjat kaikille leipomisesta ja ruoanlaitosta kiinnostuneille!"

We released a marketing campaign a few weeks before Christmas to hit the sales. The most popular products were quickly sold out.
