"With Vuoden Huiput we wanted to experiment with the in many ways unpredictable nature of crowdsourcing and automated workflow. Together with a programmer Juhani Pelli we created an application that transformed any written word or sentence into a rebus, an allusional device that uses pictures to represent words or parts of words. Homonyms are rare in Finnish language, therefore the rebus is constructed from a list of some 5000 words with the most used syllables and matched with an image search result from Google."

Tsto is a graphic design agency focusing on visual concepts and art direction. Our approach is thorough and hands-on. We tackle an assignment by first taking it apart to its bare essentials, and then building it in a new way that best serves the purpose. This philosophy lets us go deeper than the surface, to the hidden core of each case. Tsto was founded by Johannes Ekholm, Jonatan Eriksson, Inka Järvinen, Matti Kunttu, Jaakko Pietiläinen and Antti Uotila.

"A book designed to reflect on secrets of the story. Commentary by the author, explanation and annotation of illustrations are printed with UV ink, which is only visible under UV light. The binding is designed in a way that the attached UV-lamp could fit inside the book, but at the same time it can be removed and used to explore hidden messages."

Marton Borzak is a graphic designer from Hungary, currently studying and freelancing in Copenhagen, Denmark doing a graphic design internship at RoAndCo Studio in New York City.

"Colour is able to inspire and surprise. The work of the Jewellery and Product designer Vera Aldejohann is mainly based on her love to colours, which she use as most formative element in her projects. For her portfolio were seventeen small books designed, each contains one of her projects. Every book is supplemented by two different covers, which are based on the colour palette of the designers work. Through a flexible system of clips is it possible to mix and change the covers for every presentation of the portfolio. In this way the covers work not only as protection for the white books, but also as a tool for the inspiration of the designer."

Stephanie Passul is a Graphic Designer focused on Editorial Design, Typography and Art Direction. Her work includes print media, like magazines, books and posters and also visual identity’s, websites and installations.
