Welcome to the portfolio of Tomi Lahdesmaki.
Design, direction and illustration. Portland based, Finland forged.
Hi I’m Tomi Lahdesmaki. I began my career in San Francisco, at the digital brand studio Method. Before that I ran around forests of Finland throwing lightning spells and wielding a foam sword (very real looking one). While the two worlds, technology design and woods of fantasy, seem quite different, they have both taught me that everything can be conquered just as long as you pack a good lunch for the journey.
From San Francisco, I transferred over to Method’s London office, further evolving as a designer at the intersection of brand and digital. After Method I joined to help start Code and Theory’s London office. Since then I have worked as a freelancer and product designer in-house. Eventually landing in Portland, where I am currently an ACD at Pair of Thieves.
