    Creative Director/Brand Designer (contemporary, scandinavian design)

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 11

    I am a Finnish entrepreneur and creative professional with 8+ years of experience living and breathing brand design and corporate visual systems. I love to work across a vast mix of creative projects that continue to fuel my curiosity and functional approach to design. My passion lies in gaining a keen understanding of how products and services come to life for the intended audience. To truly capture the essence of a brand, one needs to understand its core functionality and values. Iconic brands can only be built if the brand trinity – visual image, function and message – is fully understood, conceptualized and then implemented across all brand communications. I enjoy working with talented people from different cultural backgrounds, and spend way too much time reading design blogs and brand case studies from Scandinavia and the rest of Europe.
