A few words about me
I've always tried to express myself visually, whether through drawings and paintings or 3D animation. At the same time, the Web has fascinated me for years – since I first started making simple web pages in elementary school. I'd at least like to think I've come a long way since then. These days I work as visual designer at Crasman in Helsinki while also doing freelance projects.

Helsinki Airport2010 / Website Design
Helsinki Airport is Finland's largest airport and among the top international airports in Europe. The Helsinki Airport website is based on Crasman's Crasmanager CMS, and the site refresh launched in early December 2010 aimed to make airport shop weekly deals and social media features more discoverable. I was given just a few days to come up with a visual concept to win the client over. I chose huge dropdowns as a starting point in order to make things discoverable, since I knew the site would be visited by people with wildly varying use cases.Visit website
I'm too much of a nerd not to work on interface design and web graphics on my free time. If you're looking for design work for a project, please check me out on Elance.com. I've done work on mobile apps, websites and apps for Mac and Windows. I'm also up for trying new things, so if your project is none of the aforementioned, I'd still like to hear from you.
