Laura

More often than not I advocate change and being the catalyst for something new is where I feel the most comfortable at.

I am a solo act but very often I get together with great people. They may have diverse skills but they share the same mindset: get stuff done, aim for amazingness and enjoy the process.

In the past nine years I have planned and produced many design events, product launches, exhibition openings, PR, communications and social media campaigns, press trips and publications.

I started in 2006 when I went to work for Martyn Evans at ORIGIN Communications in London. After nine years abroad I moved back to Helsinki in 2009. I continued working in PR at Marsaana Communications, where my clients were mainly large international lifestyle, fashion and luxury brands.

In 2011 I set up my own company and here I am.

I also write. My articles (and photographs) have been featured in several lifestyle titles, websites and in this book about Finnish design published by Gestalten earlier this year. I have written and edited the Finnair Plus Guide three times now – maybe you’ve seen it. I also edit a website called Creating Helsinki, which I created to tell the stories of the everyday makers and doers in my city. Click here to have a look.
