I am an independent design professional based in Helsinki, Finland. I am interested in crafting meaningful products, services and experiences that grow brands and delight customers. I have worked for different agencies, organizations and multinational corporations across design disciplines, from new category explorations to all-embracing brand makeovers, emphasizing a user-centered process and design vision.
Over the last five years my input has been recognized by the international design community. I received the prestigious D&AD Yellow Pencil Award in 2011, and I have been awarded with Grafia’s Young Creatives Award at the Best of the Year competition three years running based on different design projects in Finland. Most recently, I am proud to have been recognized with a 2013 Interaction Award for interaction design excellence and a Red Dot Design Award in 2013 for innovation in design.
