I am a designer, consultant, and researcher – based in Helsinki, Finland.
I specialize in legal information design, helping private and public organizations make their documents (contracts, policies, T&Cs, contract briefs,…) user-friendly, clear, and effective. In addition to providing design, consulting, and training services, I am a researcher, and I wrote my doctoral dissertation on how visualizations can enhance the usability and user experience of contracts.
I am the initiator of Legal Design Jam, a hands-on workshop that brings together different stakeholders to give an extreme user-centric makeover to a chosen contract (or any other type of insufferably dense legal/bureaucratic document).
I am the VP for Social Media on the board of the IIID (International Institute for Information Design) and I served as its World Regional Representative for Finland (2014-2018). I am also a member of Ornamo and Grafia.
In the past, I have been leading the Internship Innovation Project (I2P) at Aalto University. I2P is an “innovation-in-action” course provided in collaboration with ESADE Business School (Barcelona, Spain), in which multidisciplinary and international student teams tackle real-life, open-ended innovation challenges assigned by partner companies.
I obtained a MA in Graphic Design from Aalto University School of Art, Design and Architecture, and a D.Sc (Tech) from Aalto University School of Science. In addition to visual communication skills in information design, book/editorial design, and brand design, I have good experience in concept and service design.
