About

About me

I am an experienced Designer and Design Director. I help my clients in innovating product solutions, product design and development, creating corporate image and identity, usability design and several other creative tasks.


I usually work closely with marketing, sales and product development teams to ensure that all products designed for my client companies meet customer needs, company values and fit seamlessly with the company's brand. I help in identifying customer target groups and their analysis, developing product innovations and defining solutions, designing products, design tasks and graphic design tasks.


My daily tasks vary depending on the projects and the size of the team. I follow up and make sure that the design work is of sufficient quality and that all the given instructions are followed. I collaborate with all different departments to achieve design goals, create innovative solutions and put them into a context that other teams and customers can easily understand. Duties may also include preparing a budget and regularly analyzing it to ensure that it remains sustainable throughout product development. I mentor and guide team members and motivate them to achieve set goals.


I have worked as an industrial designer and design director for about 20 years and most of that time also as an entrepreneur. I am e.g. Founder of Focus Creative and Movercases. Through years of design work and hundreds of projects, I have acquired strong expertise in concept design, innovations, product commercialization and productization. Similarly, design management, brand and design consulting are my solid skills.

Some projects

Over the past few years, I have been able to work very closely with several companies that produce medical devices and services.

However, I can mention that such customers are e.g. Optomed Oyj, Serres Oy, Delfin Technologies Oy, Topcon and several others.
