I created the name and logo for Bolt.Works together with my teammates at Idean. After a few years of librarian studies, I continue to work with Bolt as a freelance contractor. At the moment I'm building Bolt's identity and brand further, creating a new ID guide and designing graphic elements.

Bolt's identity and brand design has always been one of my favorite projects since I was able to be a part of Bolt's journey right from the start.

I created an original Video Art Piece "Magical Forest" for The Department for Good Spirit's party at Vanha Ylioppilastalo. The video was featured as an art installation on the walls of the venue and I created the graphics based on the icons I have previously designed for Fornemus / Metsä Ry.

I sketched the designs in Photoshop, drew the final designs in Illustrator and created the video in After Effects. The main green graphic element with the leaves is also used as an icon and logo for Metsä Ry.

  • Tools Photoshop, Illustrator, XD

School Day is one of my all-time favorite projects. Creating icons with bright colors and friendly shapes is what I love to do.

Besides icon design, School Day also needed updates on their service UI/UX. The user experience and graphics were streamlined, information was made more accessible by organising the content, rethinking the user flow and using distinct brand colors.

The final UI design is colorful, happy, informative and accessible, just like School Day!

I created two unique and colourful carpet designs as a part of the renovation of the children's area at Vuosaari Library.

The blue and orange design at the small children's section is "Aurinkolahti" and the blue and pink one at the youth's section is "Itämeri Waves".

I sketched the designs in Krita and created the final designs in Illustrator.

The carpets have been very well received and have already brought a lot of joy to both children and adults alike during their visits to the library.

I created five speedpaint illustrations in Krita for The Department for Good Spirit's identity, depicting the spiritual journey throughout the day featuring a spiritual guide as the main character. The illustrations are used in a versatile way from website and social media all the way to talk show background videos.

I painted these in Krita using Wacom Intuos Pro. The illustrations will be animated and featured in various media later in 2022.


My Story

I'm a professional Creative made of Passion, Intuition and Expression. My purpose is to shape our reality and make a difference in the world one creative manifestation at a time.

Creative

I manifest creativity on any surface, space, event, installation or media.

Visual Designer

I design adaptable and versatile graphics, visual elements and layouts for different applications.

Artist & illustrator

I create unique, customized and detailed artwork and illustrations, both traditional and digital.

Pattern Designer

I design modern, crisp and quirky patterns for interior decoration products and textiles.

Photoshopper

I don't go shopping much but Photoshopping is what I do daily, either professionally or just for fun.

Mental Health Advocate

Raising awareness of Complex trauma and Dissociation is particularly important to me. I'm actively searching for new ways to lessen the stigma that is still related to mental health.

Lego Creator

I believe that preserving and treasuring your childlike playfulness is the best fuel for creativity.

  • Taika on mahtava kuvallisen ilmaisun mestari. Käsityötaito ja kyky ajatella herkästi maailmaa luo perustan innostaville, koskettaville ja ikuisille taideteoksille. Kyky nähdä todellisuuden toiselle puolelle on lahja minkä kanssa on kunnia tehdä juttuja. Kiitos.

  • Upeat ja uniikit matot, jotka toteutettiin yhdessä Lindström Oy:n kanssa, luovat harkittuine väripintoineen ja virtaavine kuvioineen kirjastotiloihin niihin halutun aktiivisen ja inspiroivan tunnelman! Suosittelen läpimästi yhteistyötä Taika Huun kanssa!
