My projects usually involve adapting, modifying, flirting and, occasionally, torturing data. It is an addictive love-hate relationship that eventually bears its fruits: maps, graphs, infographics, documents, etc. It is my contribution to making the world more understandable… or so I hope.

REC data booklet

Tools: InDesign, R

This booklet is a guide for researchers to work with the database at REC (Research Centre for Ecological Change).
I made a short video to explain what REC is and why our work is so important for the environment… and your breakfast

REC infographic

Tools: R, Illustrator, QGIS

The REC database is a collection of datasets with long-term species observations in Finland for the exclusive use of REC researchers.
I wanted to design an infographic for them to get an idea of the database at one glance.

Tool: WordPress

This educational website was designed to teach school children and the general public about biodiversity and environmental change. I coordinated the design, implementation, and translations to different languages.

HELCOM Maritime Assessment

Tools: InDesign, Illustrator, ArcGIS, R

This assessment of the maritime activities on the Baltic Sea is published periodically. This was the first time we made an extra effort to make it more visually appealing. We spent months designing maps, graphs and diagrams for each chapter. The result is quite nice, if we may say so. I like especially the visual index. We explained how we did it in a seminar.



The project BalticLines (2016-2019) was a lot of fun. I managed a Work Package to design and implement a service to access decentralized Maritime Spatial Planning data.
I made a video animation to tell the story of the project. I also share an album with pictures and visuals.

Plan Bothnia


This was a project about Maritime Spatial Planning led by us at HELCOM. We commissioned the design of the final report to Nieminen&Siitonen. It won several design awards, for example, Grafia’s “Best book of the year”.
