VANHATAPIO & SAKSI — UNORTHODOX CREATIVE AGENCY
"When there is a will, there is a way".
The designers Tiia Vanhatapio and Miika Saksi met in 2011 working on a fashion related film in NYC and Las Vegas. They discovered even though they had seen and done a lot in their respected careers, it was until now a flash of bright light emerged. Finally there came along another person who questions the norm.
Vanhatapio & Saksi's previous diverse experience and cross-professionalism from various design positions and perspectives gave birth to a unique and new type of creative agency.
Tiia Vanhatapio had been awarded with the prestigious Golden Hanger –award in 2009 and the collection of the year 2011 in ELLE Style Awards. Vanhatapio was hand picked to the New York and Paris Fashion Weeks in 2010. Her work has gained a lot of international and domestic press till this day. Vanhatapio has collaborated with such companies as Audi, Artek, Chez Dominique, Elle, Microsoft, Samsung, Stockmann and Vero Moda. Her off duty passion lies in music, subcultures and providing refreshing rock'n'roll sounds as a dj. She also calls herself an amateur archeologist-sosiologist-historian, a lifelong love affair to all things ancient.
