About me

My name is Pekka Keskinen. I am a Helsinki based visual creative, which a trendy word for a mutant who's into eveything between color crayons and web design.


Graphic design

I'm a professional graphic designer, meaning I have 10+ years of actual experience and two degrees. I enjoy web design (layouts etc) and identity/branding stuff. I'm very good at making things with my Photoshop and Wacom. I'm a perfectionist with very high standards. Pixel perfect or death!

Photography

I shoot mostly 35mm black & white film. I love street photography and classic documentary style. I take non-posed, candid photos using only natural/available light. I develop my own negatives. I avoid post processing and rely on in-camera techniques.

Web design

I build simple but nice looking websites. I like sites that have a strong focus in graphic design and usability. I don't prefer complicated sites and I truly hate WordPress (for any other purpose than blogging). What I lack in coding skills, I make up in cool graphics.

Artwork

I use Photoshop for everything. In addition to my design work, I use it to create illustrations and artwork. I've been a huge fan of digital painting for years. Occasionally I incorporate digital paintings to my designs. I especially enjoy 1950's inspired pin-up and other retro themes.

Writing

I write mostly about photography and art theory in finnish and in english. I run my own 35mm photography oriented blog and produce content to other blogs as well. Copy is also near and dear to my heart. I enjoy text that is educating, fun and contain dirty words.

Exhibitions

2017 Anno Domini, I decided to start exhibiting my artwork to the public. My first photo exhibition called Timeless Helsinki is running at the moment in Galleria Monami in Helsinki. It'll be open until Jan 15th 2018. I have other similar photo projects planned for 2018. Exhibition details TBA.
