05 / About Me / 
Hannamari Kovanen, graphic designer, illustrator and artist based in Helsinki, Finland

I’m a combination of  a creative problem solver and a creative question asker. I am trained in graphic design but I also work with illustrations and art. In my career I’ve worked with leading Finnish design companies creating brand materials for them and have also developed an artistic voice of my own. As a person I’m open-minded and full of thoughts about visual culture, design, art, science, life and experiences.

As a part of LGBTQ community I have first-hand experiece of injustice and insecurity, and as a result of that I have developed a strong sense of justice. I want to work with clients who are inclusive and share my values and work to make this world a better place.

I absolutely love dogs, plants and feeling cozy. My work focuses on lifestyle and feeling better about oneself.
