I’m a 30 year old hard working self employed entrepreneur. I've received my degree as Bachelor of Crafts and Design from Lahti Institute of Design and Fine Arts. After graduation, spring 2015, me and two of my former class mates started to set up grounds for our own design agency. During the same summer Brothers of Industrial Design Oy was registered and we have been in business ever since. You can find us at www.broid.fi

One of the greatest treasures in life on my opinion is the opportunity to confront and explore other cultures, widen your perspective and by so also to improve yourself. For this very reason I spent one semester in the spring of 2014 in Hong Kong Polytechnic University, School of Design, gaining new experiences and influences.

I have good skills in the basic Adobe programs (Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, After Effects) as well in the 3d-program Rhinoceros and rendering program Keyshot. I've also obtained some experience in Solidworks.

I have huge respect for the ten principles of good design defined by Dieter Rams. I find that usually the best outcome is achieved by limiting the extra features rather than adding more of them and by so also making the end product more approachable. “Less and more”.

As my future employer/customer you can expect from me both simple and playful solutions and to be working with a hard working and trustworthy designer.
