I am a graphic designer / art director happily based in Turku, Finland.

I’ve just moved back to my hometown Turku (Finland), after living in Brooklyn (New York) for seven years. Before that I spent nine years in Dublin (Ireland).

I have been working as a graphic designer and art director on both print and web projects for approximately ten years now, with various fun clients including Ben & Jerry’s, Percolate, Google and St. Ann’s Warehouse through some lovely agencies such as Crush + Lovely and Flyleaf Creative. For the last few years I’ve been designing lots and lots for the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music, which has been very rewarding.

I have also created a nice small side business making teddy bears out of re-purposed shirts under my own label as mrs Jermyn. They have been featured on wonderful blogs such as SwissMiss, Design Milk, Ecouterre, Daily Candy and even the New York Times.

I am quite good at Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign,  Acrobat and Keynote. I know some HTML and CSS, and I even understand a little bit of PHP and MYSQL, although I’m most certainly not a developer. And I’m a big fan of responsive web design of course.

I confess to being slightly obsessed with Lego.
