What I do

Web design

Good digital products have a clear purpose. I design small websites and online stores from research and analysis to minimalist implementations on themes, business objectives in the core. My toolbox includes the good old pen, Photoshop, Shopify and WordPress, and I can also code simple things from scratch, like this website.

Web consulting

I help small businesses and agencies to make the most of their, or their clients' websites. Identifying the flaws and opportunities is always based on data, but also benchmarking and perception. On a practical level, this usually means analyzing the needs of the target audience, user experience and KPIs, followed by prioritized recommendations.

Growth marketing

All marketing should be growth marketing. Backed with several years of digital marketing experience including conversion rate optimization, pay-per-click advertising, search engine optimization and newsletter production, I analyze, test, learn and make things happen. I love visual things and so am often also involved in marketing material design.

Six Deuce

Online store and digital marketing for Six Deuce

Six Deuce is an American fitness apparel brand. I drafted a user survey and designed and built the Finnish online store on Shopify based on the results. The main goal for the project was to enable a flawless shopping experience by focusing on the mobile user experience and to make it easy for the customers to find relevant information about shipping, payment methods and returns. I also craft all things digital marketing from newsletters and exit intention popups to AdWords search advertising and remarketing.

92 % of customers say it’s easy to find what they’re looking for
7,4 % mobile conversion rate growth (4/17 - 10/17 vs. 4/16 - 10/16)
17 % abandoned cart recovery rate (8/17 - 10/17)

Radhica

Visual identity and online store for Radhica

The side hustle and dream of my better half, Radhica is an ethically loaded online store for urban hippie girls. I created the visual identity, and designed and built it on Shopify as a minimum viable product which we’re continuously developing. I’m also the guy behind the camera for all the product photography, and have designed some print material as well.
