Joonas Sandell profile picture

I’m Joonas — UI/UX designer, front-end developer and sometimes even a music producer. I have a strong and great visual taste, broad understanding of front-end web technologies and a genuine passion for all aspects of product and visual design, including web services, touch platforms and branding.

I get excited about finding unique and elegant solutions for complex user issues, and I love designing by code in the browser but I work a lot with Figma and other design tools as well. Usually I prefer writing applications with TypeScript, React, Sass and other modern tools.

With a background that spans both UI design and coding, I thrive at the intersection of aesthetics and functionality, blending the best of both worlds to deliver great user experiences.
