to my digital portfolio. Here you will find examples of my style as a graphic designer. Some of these examples are sketches or studenworks, so all of them weren`t ment for commercial use. I hope adding sketches here makes my portfolio more interesting.




I have worked eight years in advertising agencies with mainly Finnish clients.

For nearly five years my main job has been in Finnish Vocational Collage. I work there as a teacher of graphic design. I`m doing graphic design also as a freelancer, doing different kinds

of projects for various clients.



I have studied graphic design on different kinds of courses in Finland and graduated from

Vocational School in the year 2000.

Nowadays I`m studying at evenings in Metropolia, University of Applied Sciences. My main

focus is to find new inspirations for my work and to learn more about digital publishing & web.

In 2011 I graduated from School of Vocational Teacher Education.



When I`m doing illustrations by hand, I usually work with gouache or oil paint, pen or pencils.

When I`m working with computer I`m using Apple. I have been working mostly with printed matters, so I have good knowledge in desktop publishing and working with printing industry.

Adobe`s Illustrator, Indesign, Photoshop and Acrobat are softwares that I am using almost daily. Flash and Dreamweaver are also quite common to me. Microsoft`s Powerpoint is the one that I am using from MS office-softwares. Newest software I have been learing is Adobe Muse, the one I used when I designed this portfolio.



If you would like to contact me, you can do it best by e-mail. Feel free to send me an e-mail, if you are planning an interesting design project where I could be helpful.
