A little bit about me


My name is Nana Halonen and I am a Finnish Graphic Designer currently venturing in the Netherlands. I graduated with Bachelors of Arts from Willem de Kooning Academy in 2017, with major in Graphic Design and minor in Sustainability.

After my studies, I have worked as a Graphic & Ui Designer for various companies, and in early 2021 was excited to pursue my dream and open Naksu Design.

As a Visual Storyteller and a Graphic Designer, I am driven to create impactful designs, that are not only expressive and vibrant in style but always create experiences that evoke a motion and tell the client's story.
