I am a Creative Director in a digital agency, with passion for hands-on work and continuous learning. I've been fortunate to work past 18 years with world leading companies. I am looking forward to passing my experience forward, while learning myself at the same time! My core competences are in the UX design and research.

What students say

"I would say that I already wrote very valuable feedback about how Mikko excelled as a mentor during each session as well as along the time we've collaborated within this course. But anyway I'll do a short wrap up to highlight the most important aspects: First of all, Mikko is a designer concerned about problems and not so much about solutions. This mentality shone trough when reviewing each of the exercises. I also appreciated how he never imposed his ideas, and he rather asked questions about specific aspects of the exercise as a way to trigger discussion and ultimately building me up to get the right answer. Last but not least, he shared very valuable resources and materials to complement all exercises; what's more, he told me about his professional experiences with certain design practices and the learnings he got from those. For this reasons, I'm just very glad that I had the chance to get to know and collaborate with Mikko. And I thank him for his outstanding job! :)"
