The journey of a young Graphic Designer, Helmi Kemppainen, who made a career move to live the American Dream

Helmi Kemppainen, from Finland, has travelled all around the world, in search of her passion of travelling, education and getting her dream job. Started as a Digital Marketer, Helmi moved towards Graphic Designing. Helmi Kemppainen is now living the American Dream in the sunshine state of Florida. With a vast cultural experience and diverse academic background, Helmi is working at an advertising agency feeding her creative desires.

Miami Beach, Florida, USA – Making a shift in the career requires a lot of confidence, dedication and passion towards the goals. Originally from Helsinki, Finland, Helmi finally ended up in Florida to live the American Dream. She started her career in the field of Digital Marketing and has now made a career move towards a more creative and imaginative role of a Graphic Designer at a French-owned Advertising Agency. She got into Graphic Designing with constant efforts and practice; receiving positive feedback boosted her confidence.

Talking about her new career, Helmi says “What has also helped is being okay with the fact that I don’t have to be perfect. What I can do is genuinely care about the clients projects, ask questions, get to know them and their brand, and then deliver to my best ability.”  Since Helmi is a creative person, she enjoys the projects that allow her to incorporate that creativity into her work, and once that creative project gets approved, she feels rewarded.

Helmi also moved to the UK to get an MSc in International Business. At the UK, in Cambridge, she also attended a seminar course on International Business. This was the point where she decided to have a career-switch and decided to follow her creative side. Following this decision, she moved to Florence, Italy, where she studied Graphic Designing and got a Diploma for that.

On advising young people who plan to switch their fields, she feels like they should take the risk and do it. That’s because it’s on their mind and they should explore what life has in store for them. She can be an inspiration for such people, she left her high-paying job in Australia and started to learn Graphic Designing in spite of having no clue as to what will come next.

Currently, Helmi is working at Xposure Advertising, a French-owned advertising agency working with prestigious brands as clients like Ralph Lauren, Giorgio Armani, L’Oreal, YSL and much more. Working at such an amazing agency allows Helmi to stay on her creative side and follow her passion for creativity. Following her dreams has definitely paid off and landed her the dream job that she wanted.

Recalling her first Art Gallery at 9 years old, Helmi has now big plans for the future. She wants to broaden her skillset to a point where she will be able to create her own brand and products. Currently working on a small-scale, she will eventually expand her clothes-printing business in the near future.
