About Mikko : He has always been like design industry´s Bear Grylls, if you will. Especially interested in challenging himself to overcome technical and design specific hurdles. He has always been an inventor by his trait as well. Never been inside the industry but alone wolf. To throw himself right into the middle of brainstorming is something that he enjoys a lot. Whether that call comes as a challenge from his clients or as an invitation from his own jet-engine mindset that constantly is sensing weak signals and monitors if there is a spot on the market for some novel invention in some specific area. He is a big fan of science and future technologies. To come up with a new and interesting solution by his own, next proceeding iterations and then finally seeing that idea matured into new, real life invention, gives him the great joy and pleasure of accomplishment. Inventing some better solutions is the ultimate motivation driver. Functionality, user friendliness and hard working attitude, that whole combination wrapped with beautiful design, creates also nice symbiosis with his own clientele under MikonCAD.
For me, designing is like creating a puzzle game from every aspect.
You come up with an idea then iterate the idea by sketching and tweaking to the final form and function. It takes time, trial and errors and of course contributed effort.
I am deeply in love with product design and curious to find out how things work, also from the mechanical part. Then come up with my own idea for a better solution. From the very first core loop to the final level of completion of the game itself.
Art will do it´s part when I create documentation and finish the photo realistic renderings. When showcasing my designs to the public, I like to remain that artistic touch in materials, background and stage lightnings. There is strong dynamic appearance in the finalization to be seen that strongly characterize the visual artist inside me.
