Olli Suoranta is a UI/UX Designer and Musician from Jyväskylä, Finland. He has contributed to companies such as Paytrail (by Nets), Star Arcade, Solteq and Mega Cat Studios. Currently he is working at Aiwo as an UI Developer.

Olli spent his early years by drawing, reading Spider-Man comics, fiddling with geocities and HTML editors, creating applications with Klik n Play and finger-boarding while listening to Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 soundtrack. He produced music with cheap instruments, tape recorders and Hip Hop eJay. He also experimented with various forms of animation by using legos, toys, cut-outs and web-cameras. All of this was tied together by the power of Windows 95, without internet, then burned into optical discs just to be forgotten in time.

Later, after misadventures in the realm of electricity and automation, as a newly graduated Automation Technician he took steps towards something more near to heart and soon graduated from Jyväskylä University of Applied Sciences as a Software Engineer (B.E.). Bunch of time was spent by watching Star Trek, having LAN parties, making music as a freelancer, learning about open-source operating systems and software such as Linux and Vim, countless days turned into nights while configuring various servers running bots, game worlds and random websites. Soon after that he got his first steady job at Paytrail.

After spending three years in backend development, Olli took a leap of faith towards his natural interests, leading him into the world of UX (User Experience). Nowadays he is passionate about designing and implementing accessible user interfaces for all users. He is passionately trying to avoid "always-on" culture, subscription services and social media. He thrives from de-cluttering, privacy and bridging the gap between technology and nature.

In addition, on his spare-time Olli has always been passionately creating songs, soundscapes and smithereens with varied gear and instruments..
