Who am I?
Hello! My name is Laura Poutanen, and I am visual entrepreneur living in Turku, Finland. My business is called Puuro Visuals and I create unique photography, branding, websites & social media as my job.
My story in the creative field started in 2015, when I did a 6-month internship in a church in Turku called Hopeseurakunta. During the internship, I started learning from scratch how to shoot with a proper camera, how to edit with Photoshop and how to plan and carry out creative projects independently.
After that I went to study graphic design to Helsinki Design School, and I graduated from there in December of 2016. After that I started doing part-time business designing logos and photographing for my friends.
In the beginning of 2019 I took a step forward and started doing my business full-time. Since then I’ve been doing this, and I am thankful everyday that I can do this as my job.
The best part of my job in addition to interesting projects is getting to know new people, and through my journey I’ve had the priviledge to create meaningful relationships with many of my clients and co-work with many awesome people.
