About // Valentina Lachner
I'm a sustainable designer, textile artist and illustrator based in Helsinki, Finland.
I have been working as an in-house designer for 6+ years in start-ups, curating a large toolbox of different design skills and enjoying to work in multiple disciplines. On the side I work freelance for various clients and create recycled textile art pieces.
I'm an expert in the hands-on creation of wholistic brand universes, which include product, advertising, digital touchpoints, packaging and content. My passion for sustainability runs deep and I continuously apply my extensive knowledge within my design work to create positive change.
