Helsinki, Finland

What I do

Adobe CC

html5 + css3

pen + paper


I work as a Senior UI/UX Designer at Nelonen Media. I design web and mobile apps and websites. I design logos and icons for them. I sketch, I wireframe, I design and I code. I also talk to other developers in cheerful sentences like "Could you move that div 15 pixels to the right" or "Could you please remove the rounded corners from that button".

I have a Master's degree in computer science from University of Helsinki and a bachelor's degree in Information Communications Technology from Helia University of Applied Sciences.


I have over 10 years of experience working with screens and designing for the web and various devices. So far in my career I've been lending my skills to employers from advertising, media and IT sectors, as well as doing a range of freelance gigs.

I have had the pleasure to work with a variety of clients ranging from small local companies to huge global corporations. Among the industries I have worked with are movies, cosmetics, telecommunications, healthcare, music and construction.

Who I am

Sakari Itkonen

guitar + bass

video games

comic books

I love creating stuff whether it be user interfaces, prototypes, music, drawings or anything else.

I play guitars with 6, 7 or 8 strings and bass. I'm very much into video games and my collection currently spans over 1200 titles on around 15 different consoles from NES to PS4.

Comic books are also awesome (you should totally check out 100 Bullets, Y: The Last Man and Spaceman).
