Senior Graphic Designer
I am a professional graphic designer and visual artist with over 25 years of experience in a very wide range of audiovisual productions. I have worked in the US, in Finland and in the UK, and am currently based in Helsinki. I work as a graphic designer, illustrator, web designer, photographer and animator, and also with audio and video at professional level. I work fast and precisely and do high quality work.
My background is in print design and illustration, largely in book production.
Additionally I worked four years in Marketing, where I did illustrations, magazine covers, layout, posters, flyers, brochures, packaging, etc.
I have expert level skills in InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Flash, Premiere, After Effects, Painter, Filter Forge, Poser, Bryce 3D, Acrobat, FontoGrapher, Cubase, Encore, Blender, and a host of other software.
For web development I use primarily Joomla (dynamic websites) and Dreamweaver (static sites), but have done several sites in other systems including Drupal and Weebly.
My primary current interests are multimedia and motion graphics, particularly animation and visual effects. I do photography, video, electronic music production and video editing.
I have excellent digital photo manipulation, retouching and restoration skills.
I have my own music and sound production company.
I studied Graphic Design in the University of Applied Arts in Finland.
