DesignCompany’s owner and designer
Packaging designer Outi Oravainen
The diverse work experience with packaging that I have accumulated over the decades has made the promise of success possible.
I got my first packaging related job in 1996. Before that I graduated as a graphic designer.
I have worked as the AD of a design agency and also in a big industrial operator. I’ve already been an entrepreneur for well over ten years.
The years spent in Luxembourg have brought perspective in life in general, but also in professional expertise. I will gladly lead even big packaging projects, because i understand them well.Outi Oravainen
I understand the whole production chain from concept to ready product. I know the packaging design process well and assist my clients in executing it. My way of leading is exact.
Understanding consumer insight is close to my heart. Without a reason to buy the product it won’t be sold. I always bring my wide understanding of consumer behaviour to my projects. I also gladly co-operate with consumer research companies.
My designs are always produceable. I have made packaging designs in hundreds of different packaging formats. During my career I have made thousands of print originals. I have supervised first printings in countless countries and print houses. My technical expertise is at a very high level.
