Juha Koivusalo
Design & Illustration

Hello! I’m Juha, a designer and an illustrator from Finland. This is a small showcase of my work.

Illustration

Personal projects and actual client work in no particular order. As cheesy as it sounds I try to convey happiness through everything I create, and vibrant colours and dynamic compositions play a big role in my character-driven illustrations. If I can make even one person smile I consider my work successful. When possible I also like to fill my images with obscure references that probably no-one but me will ever understand. I work mainly digitally and do all my illustrations on Procreate.

Graphic Design

Album cover design and poster work. I used to practice music for many years before I went down the design path. I don't really play much anymore but I now try to keep the hobby even somewhat alive through music related projects. Illustrations play a strong role in my graphic design work too, and I think I'm at my best when I can combine visual narratives with actual products to create something that's both functional and captivating.

Instagram

I'm pretty unsocial on social media in general, but I try to use Instagram. My feed mainly consists of drawings of goofy characters and photos of dog poop signs, so if either of those is your thing look no further!

I'm currently renovating this whole portfolio site of mine so this page acts as a temporary showcase until I finish the other pages. The old pages are still up and running in the background, I just don't direct anyone there anymore. Except here, this link takes you there. Tell no-one.
