I am a designer focusing on new media and service design.



Contact me:


I’m available for projects in tech, VR/AR, games, and other types of new media.

I believe that through design I have the chance to increase quality of life of others, by making everyday tasks easy and enjoyable both visually and through usability.

Creating meaningful experiences is my main goal in everything I do.

Experience achieved:


Creative Designer

Loiston Oy Ltd
2018–2019


Loiston is a recently established and fast-growing fusion company in the field of software technology.

As the first designer in house, I handled all diverse design-related tasks. I built the company visual identity from the ground up, delivering simple and user-friendly designs.

I created a new modern look for the new company, including design guidelines and the new company colors, logo, letter heads, social media look, business cards and website UX/UI. I also did UX/UI improvements to Loiston's software products.

Robot Petting Sea

An interactive art installation made for Flow Festival 2018. On the top floor it houses angry little robot creatures. Through the holes on the bottom, the user can reach in and touch around various surfaces. If the user finds soft, furry areas and pets them, the creatures will calm down.

Created by combining Arduino, 3D printing and traditional methods together with fellow Media Lab student Shreyasi Kar.

After the festival, the installation was a part of Underneath – an immersive labyrinth by Recover Laboratory.
