MA in Leadership and Service Design
BA in Industrial Design
CX / UX
In youth, I started my design career around the age of 13 by working my summers in a company that was making advertising signs and ad-vinyls to vehicles and shops. And a bit later as full time employee creating also graphics for first generation of large format digi-prints, signs, outdoor and indoor ads. During that time I was also studying machinery, which made me realize that design is my true passion and something I want to to learn more of.
After that I have got 9 years of design studies from Artisan to BA in Industrial Design to MA in Leadership and Service Design). I´ve created CX/UX to products, packaging, services and UI´s as independent designer as well as in-house. I have been part of the multinational teams and worked with multinational brands. I have gathered extensive experience and I´m familiar with different fields of business, materials and manufacturing.
Out of my own interest, I started to learn how to develop websites. It all begun around “Y2K” with legendary Netscape WYSIWYG -editor. First by building my personal online portfolios and websites for my bands (and my mates bands) and also for some companies. Then I moved to Dreamweaver WYSIWYG and from that to HTML/CSS and later HTML5 for mobile responsive designs. Then I discovered the WordPress and on that road I still am.
To me “Design” is a process, a tool to solve complex challenges in co-creative way. That process is the thing I got my kicks out of. Different design projects share few things that change, these are the subject, humans (their needs and behavior), tools used and the designers role. I have the education and work experience (+15 y.) and I´m confident jumping on the deep end and tackle the challenges with you!
Looking for a creative to push your brand to next level?
I currently work as an entrepreneur, Improving customer experiences. On the side I upcycle materials and sell that stuff in a small eShop.
However, long term employment in a customer centric organization, or in one that’s aiming to change to that, would be pretty cool. I enjoy the improvement of customer/user experiences and am able to deal with development of haptic products, person2person and digital services.
