Sapana Women Development Project

SPECIAL PROJECT

Leading a local manufacturing team in Nepal June 2016

DESCRIPTION: I spent one month in Chitwan, Nepal as a volunteer designer. Working with a group created by “Sapana Lodge�, aiming to provide work for the local uneducated women. My goal was firstly to understand how they create, then improve their way of working and also design new products for them to manufacture.


MORE ABOUT THE PROJECT: They mainly produce handicraft toys and consumer goods for resellers abroad. I created series of new products from their bestselling jungle toys and also developed new grass vowen box sets. It was a great project leading experience in a totally new culture. Further working with people, who speak limited English, was also a good challenge for my self-expression skills.


Social hub for Tallinn Music Week

FROM CONCEPT TO REALITY

Garage48 hackaton, weekend event Team: Liina Soosaar, Anastassija Malkova, Sarah Thees, Pärtel Soosalu Supportive mentors: Yoko Alender, Indrek Leht January - May 2017

DESCRIPTION: Attending a one weekend intense Hackaton event, which topic was to find alternative uses for old garage blocks in Tallinn. Teams were formed on Friday and concepts presented on Sunday. Our team designed a Social Hub alternative place during Tallinn Music Week. Turning old garages into a secret rooftop gig with pop-up galleries and cafes! For presentation we prepared a prototype and video material.


We got rewarded with special prize from Tallinn Music Week, which meant realising our concept for the upcoming festival!


Creating the site March 2017

MORE ABOUT THE PROJECT: After hackaton, our team kept meeting regularly to bring our concept to life. We began by searching the perfect location and arranging agreements with garage owners. Then organising necessary objects regarding creating the site and our final result. One week before the event we started with intense renovations on the site with the help of festival volunteers. My main role was being a creative manager on the site and making sure everything is going according to plan.
