I am addicted to Adobe Illustrator. When I saw my university offering graphic classes I signed in immediately. Since that I have spent many hours discovering the secrets of creating vector art. Here is one of my earliest works called Kaomoji,a japanese emoticon. He is formed by 28 different objects (including shadows and highlights)（・ω・）/
In the winter 2015 I took part to Barona's and Haaga-Helia's project which was a combination of group innovation and project work bounded around one's personal dream job.
In the lead of two professionals from Barona we started our journey in concept work. The idea was to find our own path by listening our interests, dislikes and creative side. I enjoyed the process very much and my ideas finally developed into - not only a job - but to a product. My concept was one of the best and I got an opportunity to present it in Barano's Helsinki headquarter.
As I am currently changing my innovation to the reality there will be more information available about it sooner or later. Stay tuned because there is nothing that can stop me now!
