Pinja Kumpulainen

I'm a third year graphic design student at Lahti University of Applied Sciences. I'm specialized in branding and marketing communication. Typography and layouting is what I'm very good at. I'm also interested in user experience and interface design and would love to lear more.

Kalevalan henkiä ja olentoja

typography, illustration, layout, book design

Kalevalan henkiä ja olentoja is an illustrated book of poetry. It introduces gods and creatures of Finnish oral folklore and mythology in the same poetry metre as the national epic Kalevala. This book was designed in october 2017 as part of a typography class. The assigment was to make an ABC book about an optional topic and I chose Finnish mythology because it has always fascinated me.

Visual OPS

typography, infographic, layout, applying existing visual identity

In the end of the year 2018 I was hired to visualize the curricula of Lahti University of Applied Sciences. This hadn't been done ever before, but it was very much needed since the curricula on the webpage was quite hard to grasp. I designed the concept, gathered all the information and got feedback from both the students and teachers. I did 22 posters in total.

Walk on the wild side

typography, layout, visual design of publication

This was one of the very first publication design courses we had, and luckily I have evolved a lot since then.

Photography is done by Laurence Philomene.

Traveller

In the spring of 2019 we had an interactive content design course, during which we were supposed to create basic website with Wordpress.
