My name is Sami and I am a designer, creative director and an explorer. I help organisations to envision their futures, and translate them into new products, services, experiences and ways of working and organising.

In December 2018, I have the privilege to explore the futures of Nordic design, Chinese manufacturing and machine learning in collaboration with HIAP for He Xiangning Art Museum in Shenzhen, China.

In 2007, I co-founded Nordkapp which has now grown into the most awarded design firm in Finland, with a base in Amsterdam as well. In addition to hands-on design work and leadership, I give talks and actively build better, and more sustainable futures for all of us.

On the side, my passion is to help the local community to connect and grow. In 2008 I co-founded IxDA Helsinki, and between 2012—2018 was a board member of Grafia, actively taking part in to Ico-D National Design Policy work globally. I also have brought two major events to Helsinki.
