  • My background is in editorial design, and before that, in illustration. I continue teaching those subjects, and also teach typography and type design. I have published a couple of typeface families. The next challenge is to incorporate creative writing, storytelling and animation in the studies. We are creating two new majors, Visual Narrative and Information Design, and launched a new minor subject, titled Pixstories, in 2014. At the moment my greatest passion is writing and illustrating my own novels, two of which have been published by Tammi / Bonnier Books. More information:

    My own site, mostly type design:

    Village type foundry with my Freya typeface.

    The Finnish type foundry Typolar with my Vinkel typeface.
