To sum things up, Killer Beach is about just one thing — to create graphics that doesn't SUCK! The company was officially established in 2007 and run by me (Pekka — see bio below), an enthusiastic web graphic designer from Helsinki. Killer Beach is 50/50 about web design and graphic design. Altough the main focus is on graphics, the web happens to be an imporant media where my expertice as a designer can be implemented perfectly.
My name is Pekka Keskinen and I run Killer Beach. I have a huge interest in the web, graphic design, art, visual communication (and of course pin-ups). Graphic design is my destiny. This is a calling for me, not something I just decided to fool around with. I was born with a gift and talent to create. I get inspiration and strenght from ideas and imagination. I honestly believe in the power of ideas. Without them design and art is flat and boring. I want to go beyond that and utilize my skills in many different medias. Primarily I'm interested in the web. My mission is to help the web from becoming lifeless, generic and ugly. I think that is my responsibility as a modern day artist.
For my design and art related social media endeavours, you can find me on Twitter and on Dribbble.
I do websites, graphic design, web layouts and facelifts, app designs, art direction and visual concepting — anything web and design related really. Occasionally I do illustration work too. I'm Available for both sub-contracting and B2B. I often work in cooperation with digital agencies who are in the need of team reinforcements. Get in touch if you want to know more. I'm happy to help!
I've worked for more than 100 different clients. All sort of companies — small and very large ones. Some big ones include Veikkaus, Sub TV, Rovio, Helsingin Kaupunki, Activeark, Buff, UN Women and many more. (I'm putting up a complete client/reference list at the moment and will publish it soon.)
