Finnish Design Info is launched

The plans for a new info centre for the design field move forward with a new project team.

Finnish Design Info builds a platform to communicate about Finnish design in a dynamic and diverse way and to share knowledge about the impact design has for business and the society at large. After a period of preparation the project now moves to its next phase with a newly-appointed team.

Katja Lindroos assumed the position of project manager in late-February. Lindroos is an entrepreneur and brings to the project her experience of project leadership, cross-sectoral collaboration as well as media and event production. She will oversee the launch and develop organisational structures for the project to secure its continuation. Reetta Haarajoki started in March as the communication expert for the project. She has worked with visual culture in various communication and production roles. Haarajoki will manage the digital channels of the project and create content about different phenomena of Finnish design.

Finnish Design Info is led by Helsinki Design Week’s organizer Luovi Productions, Aalto University, Design Forum Finland, the Design Museum, the Grafia Association of Visual Communication Designers and Ornamo Art and Design Finland.
