Who am I ?

Hi! My name is Minna. I’m 26 years old ICT student from Helsinki, Finland.
I’m getting my Bachelor’s degree in Engineering at Metropolia University of Applied Sciences.
I will graduate from Metropolia in December 2019.

I have also Vocational Qualification in Business and Administration from
Etelä-Kymenlaakso Vocational College.

I have great skills in design. I’m passionate about graphic design and I do web design as well. UI/UX design is included to my studies but graphic design I have learned by myself. Besides my ICT skills I have great customer service and marketing skills.​

My goal is to constantly build up my skills, for example now I’m studying more about front end development in a React course.

I’m very good with WordPress and have basic HTML and CSS skills
I spend my free time designing new things all the time to improve my design skills and my knowledge on Adobe Creative Cloud.

My main design tools are Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop, but I would love to try new tools like Sketch and Figma.
I have started to study how to use Adobe InDesign as well.

I want to learn more about video editing and animation too and I have new courses to participate to all ready. I love to learn new things and improve myself as a designer and developer.

I wanted Minna to create a business card for me which I could use to advertise me as an employee. At first I wanted a simple minimalistic layout but Minna came up with much nicer desing for the card. She asked for my opinion in every step of the design process. In the end I could say that the card looks professionally made and I’m very pleased with the final result.

My design process

BRIEF

First I read the brief and make sure that I understand it.

RESEARCH

After getting know the brief I start to researching:
What Is the project scope? What tools I need?

SKETCH

After I've decided what tools I will use I start to sketch ideas in paper or in my head:
sometimes if it's a small project I don't need to sketch it in paper: I just imagine it and start working in Photoshop etc.

FINALIZE

After sketching I start to work with my idea. I create my designs with Photoshop or Illustrator, sometimes I use both.

When the product design is ready I use mock ups to present it.
