WHO
My name is Miika Kumpulainen. I’m a Helsinki-based graphic designer / art director with over 17 years of experience in design and advertising. I’m an ambitious creative, uncompromising craftsman and a sports enthusiast. I love visual design in all its forms and I’m not afraid to study and experiment on new styles and techniques. I also create illustrations, type design and hand lettering as seen on my reference work.
WHAT
My creative skill set allows me to execute design and branding projects all the way from concept design until the last pixel on the website. If you are looking for an experienced designer who can create true value to your brand, don’t hesitate to contact me. 
HOW
Although the versatile skill set allows me to handle projects individually with clients I’m also open-minded to working with creative teams. I possess years of experience in leading creative teamwork from my time as an Associate Creative Director in the advertising agency TBWA\Helsinki.
