Hannes

Hi there!

My name is Hannes Vaht. I am an enthusiastic and versatile product designer and artisan based in Turku Vaasa, Finland.

I am currently working as a freelance designer, and looking for interesting projects, people and opportunities in Vaasa. For the right project, I’m willing to travel any distance.

My strongest suit is product design. I’m passionate about 3D and concept design. Over the years, I’ve done quite a bit of web design, graphics, logos, and print.

I have a lot of experience in furniture design and prototyping. In my work, I always approach my projects from a user point of view.

It’s my belief that great user experiences come from great products and services, that are carefully, thoughtfully and passionately crafted.

As a designer, I’m comfortable working in any industry. I love to solve problems and to work in multi-disciplinary teams. As a team member, I’m easily approachable, weirdly sociable for a Finn, and very much at home in an international environment. I don’t shy away from responsibility or leadership positions. Over the years I’ve been actively involved in various kinds of organisations. There I’ve tended to motivate people around me and help bring out the best in them. I like to bring a whole-hearted enthusiasm and engagement to any project I participate in. With my passion for great results, comes a bucketful of honesty in the work process. Oh, and “Thinking outside the box” is pretty much my middle name 🙂

I have received my design education at the Turku University of Applied Sciences and Estonian Academy of Arts. Prior to that, I graduated from an Arts and Crafts school, where I specialized in furniture making.

After doing my training as a product and interior designer for CasimirMeuble and Flaemch in Belgium in 2010, I have been doing freelance work, developed a new office furniture brand. In addition to searching for a position in your company 🙂 I am currently working on my own furniture series.

To get in touch, shoot me an e-mail (hannesvaht@gmail.com) or give me a call (+358 45 633 96 22)!

I’m looking forward to hearing from you!

Hannes
