Hei, Hello!

Welcome to my website – I am Petri Tuohimaa, a 38-year-old graphic designer and the owner of Barkland Design based in Helsinki, Finland. This site is mobile friendly, but a computer will give you the best experience.

I started my career in 1999 and have learned quite a few tricks over the years. I have run a graphic design company of my own since 2005, and with this new identity, Barkland Design, since February 2015.


I use all latest Adobe software in my work, shoot images with a professional DSLR, light my photographs with portable and studio strobes, do my own Mac hardware upgrades and in general consider myself as geeky tech-savvy. All these tools set the foundation for being able to offer high quality creative services.

Graphic Design

Graphic design is my bread and butter and I pretty much do it all from print design to digital media. My goals are clear: clean and functional design guided by Nordic aesthetics and constructive dialogue with clients.

Brand Indentity

I have over 10 years of experience in developing and maintaining brands for clients. While creating a brand is every designer’s dream, it’s the long-term process of evolving a brand that offers the greatest challenge, and gratification.


15 years of photography experience supports my design work, be it shooting in the field, or with studio lighting. Everyone has a camera these days, but for standing out, you need preparation, vision, and knowing your equipment.

Web Development

Starting as a web designer in 1999 I learned to create websites in HTML, and work with PHP code. Over the years, static websites have given way to developing layouts for websites powered by platforms such as Drupal and WordPress.
