Kalleheikki Kannisto

I have worked in graphic design for over 25 years. I spent 15 of those years in the US as an illustrator and a graphic designer, with book illustration as my primary focus. During that time I worked in marketing for about four years designing book covers, posters, brochures, banners, etc.

At the side I did plenty of other work in the fields of marketing and visual communications, and got first-hand experience on animation, special effects and even behind the desk of an architectural office visualizing interior architecture and space plans in three dimensions. 

I returned to Finland in 2007 to pursue a freelance career as an illustrator and graphic designer and formed this company as the scope of work expanded. I still do illustration, book cover design and layout, but increasingly animation, video production and digital visual effects. Electronic music and other creative fields are of great interest to me as well.

I take pleasure in learning new skills and putting them to practise. Which is why I constantly study new methods, techniques and technologies of design.


The software I am currently using:

InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Joomla, Dreamweaver, Flash, Fireworks, Premiere, After Effects, Painter, Filter Forge, Poser, Bryce 3D, Acrobat, FontoGrapher, Cubase, Encore, Blender.
