Hey! I am Hanna Lahti, a graphic designer and illustrator from Helsinki. I have been working since 2003 as a freelance illustrator.
I am a relentless enthusiast for creative projects and a good manager of myself. I prefer to make a brisk start to my design work from the very beginning. My strengths are cooperation skills honed in meetings with partners, quick decision making and sticking to deadlines. In my spare time I enjoy jogging by the Baltic sea, cultural events and being inspired by nature and museums.
My office is located in the heart of Helsinki. Invoicing is easy with me, because I work under a business name. During my years as an entrepreneur, I have had time to gain versatile experience as an illustrator: my commissions have ranged from individual vignettes to the realization of a festival look. For new jobs, I choose the most appropriate style from my palette. I am always interested in trying new things as well. My working languages are Finnish and English.
My specialty is combining illustration and graphic design. I prefer to work completely digitally. Do you need a unique story and moving image to support your message? Succeed! As a sideline, I create a variety of video content, starting from the script. More work samples can be found on my company's website.
