KAX PIIRTOA paintings, á la Tapani & Mikko
"Even though time flies and generations change, art is here forever."
This is proven by two artists from different generations, Tapani & Mikko Piirto.
Both come from the same family and from a small town, Jalasjärvi, located in Southern Ostrobothnia. These two artists express the ever-changing and adaptive nature of art with their works in the Kax Piirtoa (Two Piirtos) art exhibition. Taidesalonki Piirto welcomes you!

Iso Roobertinkatu 48-50

BEHIND THE SCENES
Design District Helsinki is an association of around 200 creative companies. The ideas of these unique businesses are created by a great group of individuals! Design District Helsinki visits ”Behind the scenes” and interviews people behind all these ideas and creativity. The second in row is Jolie!
We met and interviewed Jutta Ruonansuu and Katja Kokko who opened year ago Jolie, their shop in Uudenmaankatu Street in Design District Helsinki. Jolie sells organic cosmetic products that are not only good for you but also look good. A place where everyone with a yearning for aesthetics should drop in.

Digital design news – Slippry!
booncon oy, Iso Roobertinkatu 44
Last Friday we launched the first version of our Slippry slider! The slider is completely free and available from the Slippry website (link below).
It seems like every website these days has a slider (or three), and with good reason. Sliders are a great way to present your content, whether it be images or inline HTML content, in an interactive and user-engaging way.
So why make our own?
All of our past, and current projects have a slider at some point. When it comes to the free sliders, each one has its own strengths and weaknesses. Instead of using the same slider, we choose on a per project basis what is available vs what we need to achieve.
This was going great until we noticed some warnings appearing in our browser that a function being used was deprecated and due to be removed in the not to distant future.
In plain English: one day it would going to go spastic.
Living in the land of pre-emption, we decided to kick this problem before it kicked us.
