Head of Design

Patrick Savolainen

Patrick is our Head of Design and is the creative mastermind behind our branding efforts. A talented writer and visionary designer, he oversees the projects relating to our creative portfolio and is hands-on in developing new resources.

Part of our team since July 2019, Patrick provides an invaluable alternative perspective drawing from his artistic experiences and mindset. His input has helped us to advance our capabilities and processes in a multitude of ways, including by taking a leadership role during our branding process.

Some of his work in this role has led to the development of key components of our website, including our custom font. He has also overseen the creation of digital recruitment resources and helped to build new client-facing products and services. Patrick also shares his unique perspective to add value to client projects where appropriate.

As well as contributing to Hyphen’s conceptual and design output, Patrick runs his own creative practice with cultural organisations, renowned newspapers and type foundries among his clients.
