DESIGN

I completed my upper secondary education at the Helsinki Upper Secondary School of Visual Arts and graphic design has been a prominent part of my life ever since. Here are some examples gathered over the years.

PRODUCT DESIGN

I've participated and created a selection of physical products and prototypes. 

Chair
Eco-Tunnel

2019

Our team designed a multisensory product experience that encourages healthy food purchase decisions. We based our concept on psychological research behind healthy eating behaviours and consumer behaviour.

In Varietate Concordia

2017

I designed a European Union-themed product line and sell it on RedBubble. Interestingly, it has been the most popular in the UK.

ColourSphere

2015-2016

Our team project created a prototype for a user-friendly and fun to use microtonal instrument. The process started from product research, moving to design and two usability tests before the final prototype, all of which you can read in our paper:

SOFTWARE, UX/UI & WEB DESIGN

Both technology and psychology have been an integral part of my entire adult life, hence my keen interest towards user experience. My first touch to the field came in 2015 through a Master's course titled 'Human-Computer Interaction Design'. Since then I've taken every opportunity to learn more about UX and apply my skills in practice.

My favourite tools for design are Sketch, InVision, Photoshop and Wix.

Space Traveller

2019

An imaginary app for long-distance space travel between colonies. Features include controlling the spacecraft, viewing the star map, and inducing sleep for long duration trips.
