Strategy & Design

Hello. I’m Joonas Virtanen, a Finnish strategic designer living & working between New York & Helsinki and making magic at Contrast and Smarp.

I am new media expert, proud nerd, music junkie, outdoor aficionado and a professional powernapper. I am also an entrepreneur fueled by the digital era: Serving as Creative Director in a fast growing startup SmarpShare as well as a co-founder of a passionate digital agency, Contrast. 

I consider myself being a blend between a creative designer and sales-oriented businessman, so I believe it is no accident that I have found my passion in the field of digital media & marketing.
