Meet the designer

Jyri Turunen is a Finnish designer with a knack for innovative digital concepts. While the man has implemented a dozen unique services for public transit, shopping centers, trade expos, companies and entire cities his bread and butter used to involve adventuring around the world before becoming a concept designer.

While walking from Sweden to the US, or riding a kick sledge back and forth across Europe, and through China, your mind begins to wander. You’re all by yourself in the middle of nowhere, you block out all external elements while your body is droning away a repetitive task. This is when all you have are your thoughts.

After passing hundreds of cities and reporting my observations to the Finnish or Chinese mainstream media, I started to take personal notes of what I’d seen. Even when technology advances in all fields, one thing never changes: people’s interest in their surroundings. Humans have always formed groups for whatever collective interests they share, which leaves less room for outside influences. All these different groups however have one thing in common, and that’s their community, their town, city, their surroundings.

Technology gives us the tools to produce content based on an individual’s location or exact need, and this is my greatest point of interest as a designer, as well as a user.
