I am a board game designer from Finland. At the moment I'm the head designer in company called Hyptic. My game design does not follow any tradition or acknowledged designing trends (eg. American or German style). I would like to call my designing as ground breaking or revolutionary. Of course that is not the case with all of my designs and in the end you are the one who decides if those claims are true.
I do also arts and in the first edition of Tornado Alert! (which is the first of my published games) there is my graphics design in most of the components (excluding some of the cover arts). However, graphics aren't my primary focus and thus they propably become rare at games in a future.
