About Jaana Björklund

I’ve worked with web media for over 15 years as a visual designer, concept designer and also on the business end of things. I’m definitely a pragmatist - with lively imagination ad capability to reason. Designer never works alone. A website is a sum of its parts – from technical details to content production. And it is also a process – from strategically well thought administration process to careful editing and gradual improvements of design and functionality. Good design is more than skin deep and works with all these dimensions. I love the fragility of life, the whole spectrum of colors, the beauty of broken. My hands are restless, like to give them some paint, wood, yarn or fabric to work with.
