I'm fourth year Industrial Design student at Xamk University of Applied Sciences and this is my web portfolio. It is also the website of my company Paavo Paajanen Design.
I come with a background of a professional cyclist. After I finished my career in cycling I had no idea what to do in the future. Design seemed interesting so here we are!
My biggest project so far has been the Bikeself project which includes designing a bike shelf from a scratch, prototyping and manufacturing small set for selling purposes. I started my own company around Bikeself and designed and created an online store. My intent was to train myself to run my own company and handle the whole commercial process. I have now been an entrepreneur for a full year and the whole year has all in all been full of lessons learned.
At the moment Paavo Paajanen Design offers services on product design, concept design, service design and design management. In the future one of my main goals is to add value on companies through using various design tools and up-to-date possibilities of digitalisation.
