Edin Tucalija

I am a designer, illustrator and writer from Helsingborg, Sweden. In all my drawings I try to add a bit of personal, human and organic touch and hope that one day I will be able to create products that people will love and use with joy. To almost every drawing I write a short poem.

In today's digital world, we create a lot with computer as an assistant. And there’s nothing wrong with that. What I like is to add a little bit of handmade to a digital product, perhaps with a pen or a brush. I want to create contrasts that enhance both parts. Computers make personal parts suffer; they do most things a little bit too perfect. And it is not the world, nor the people in it. I want to create products that get us closer, closer to reality, closer to the world.

I believe that beauty exists within all of us. To reflect that I paint very minimal drawings and I allow the colours to lift the subject and create balance. I think we all could do so even in the real world and show that we are just as beautiful as anyone, and in any manner.

Many of my drawings are black and white, for people's fates are often tragic. However, I try to find consolation, at least with some beautiful words. I try to give a little hope, show some compassion and turn someone's bad day into something good.

Kindest regards,
Edin Tucalija
