Simo is a craftsman of the digital era: he has had a passion for real-time graphics, graphics design and user experience for over 16 years. He’s been on a journey in the digital medium through graphics, to print design, mobile and browser development, front-end programming and even games, digital marketing and all the way back to real-time graphics.
Simo, originally from Pori in Finland, is a demoscene hobbyist and open-source contributor and is always creating something (like his one-man award-stealing operation, the music visualiser APEXvj). In the summer of 2012 he went freelance, set up a company and focused entirely on the stuff he loves: real-time graphics.
Once a pioneer and award winning Flash developer, Simo has since moved on to a new
technology called Fuse from Outracks Technologies, a group of mad scientist technologists and tool vendors. Simo was one of the first pilot users of this technology and has used it on a daily basis for both clients and his own experimental projects, as well as APEXvj.
Simo has been a featured speaker on such highly regarded events as FMX and FITC, and has given talks at several design and media conferences.
