Web Design & Branding in the making

Do you dream of visually beautiful websites that give you a strong online presence? As a designer I combine both my visual creativity and technical skills to make affordable websites to individuals and small businesses.

Designing a complete brand identity is more than just making a logo. I get inspiration from values the customer represents. I start with collecting core words that best describe them and the reflect the uniqueness of services or products. Sketches are then developed into a visual identity which consists of a colour scheme, typography and overall style that provide consistency across the entire brand image.

See below for a few recent websites and identities I have created.

I also make videos. Get inspired here.

SCRAPS OF HOPE is Academy of Finland researcher Marjaana Jauhola´s visual portfolio of her ethnographic research in Aceh, Indonesia, following everyday lives of people in the aftermath of the tsunami and years of armed conflict. I chose this website to have the spirit of graffiti walls and improvised homes instead of more traditional way of showcasing the academic work. The intro video below has the same style, too.
