My job is mainly to reach the right target groups. We work with different types of material in a variety of channels and it is my job to make sure the material we produce reaches its target audience in an efficient way. For example, I solve advertising problems and analyze web traffic, and am responsible for many other things often happening in the background when you surf the web.
Most people think I surf Facebook or watch cat videos all day. Some claim that I'm the one who makes sure their Facebook feeds are full of ads. Well, they aren't wrong.
I started as an intern in 2016 and accumulated a lot of internship time at WM the following two years. After that, it was obvious to me this was where I wanted to work when I finished my studies.
I've been here for a while now and not a single day has been boring! Getting a job in an industry that is always changing in a company that is always expanding is what I like best. Yes, and the strong community of colleagues, of course!
I don't know if I have any superpower, but a copywriter colleague of mine said she was surprised I'm so good at writing text! Maybe my secret superpower is even a secret from me?
Recording my hours, if you ask Jakob. Joking aside, I want to get better at everything! In this industry, it is dangerous to get too comfortable, because then you are already two steps behind!
Good ol' Rap!
My favorite WM memories are probably from our team having worked on really demanding projects. That feeling afterwards when you have beaten a challenge and can finally sit back – that's unbeatable.
An Art Director plans and designs visual ideas and concepts. You make sketches and plans for how everything should look and feel; everything from photo styles and image ideas to typography and colors. Teamwork is a major part of the work. As an Art Director, I participate in customer meetings and keep in touch with the client, while at the same time working closely with our copywriters and web developers, among others. A lot of this is about how to reach a specific target group and what will visually appeal to them.
Most of my friends probably know what I'm doing, as they are in the same industry as me. The problems come when I try to explain, for example, to grandma or grandpa. I think they imagine I sit and draw in front of the computer all day.
I saw an advertisement on Facebook about an open position as a graphic artist. I had never heard of Wikström Media before but was interested immediately. At the time I was in my third year of studies in graphic design at Novia, and more or less figured I would probably not get the job. But I applied anyway, since the ad said career-stage didn't matter. And, I got the job! Initially, I worked on the days I didn't have school. After I graduated, I was able to continue full-time.
All the challenging and fun projects. I have learned so much during my time here. No two days are alike and that is something I enjoy. It's fun to be on this journey and think back about how much has changed since I started. Sick! And of course, all the colleagues, too. We are such a good bunch here! Getting to work with like-minded creative people is so great!
Font memory. If someone in the office asks me what font a particular customer uses, I can say it right away without looking it up. How useful this is in the end, I'm not sure.
I have a very good memory, which means I sometimes rely on it a little too much. So, writing things down in my calendar is something I would need to get better at doing. When you have many projects going at the same time, it can get a little messy.
I love to have an organized folder system on my computer and if the desktop on the computer is chaos then I can't concentrate. When I need to focus, the first thing I do is start ordering my files and removing anything extra.
Hmm…that's a good question! It's always fun with the WM gang. Especially all our coffee breaks!
The job is very variable, but the main task is to create websites, web shops, and web mobile applications based on the graphics and sketches. I also work with search engine optimization and so many websites still need maintenance.
100% programming. I guess they think I'm sitting in a dark room with a bad attitude writing code all day long.
I applied for an internship at Wikström Media while studying but did not get the position. I refused to give up and applied for a summer job a year later. I go that job and I'm still here!
The work is interesting and quite challenging. Each project is unique and brings its own problems that need creative solutions. Both my workplace and our customers show a genuine appreciation for the work I do. The friendly, competent, and helpful colleagues are quite okay, too!
Good memory! In addition to keeping track of work, I am also the one who always remembers to turn off the lights and the coffee maker when I'm the last one out of the office at night.
To be honest, my table is pretty messy. I keep good order in my head, but sometimes I forget to be equally organized in other areas.
Take a break to clear your head. For example, you can go to Korv-Görans and eat a 2-euro kebab!
Moving to our new office. That was an exciting time, the company was growing at rocket speed and it was wonderful to finally get some more space for all our screens and gadgets.
Video is a very powerful tool in marketing and therefore requires careful planning and a really good idea. We create a vision and realize it through strong visual expression – the vision and the visual go hand in hand, so to speak. We work in both smaller and larger teams, and the most intense part in the production is the film recording when everything that has been so carefully planned comes to life!
They often ask about my job and I've explained it so many times that they are starting to have it down. They think I, "plan, film, shoot and edit commercials," which sums it up pretty well, actually.
I met up with my childhood friend, Natalie, after not seeing her for a long time. When she heard I had studied film and video, she told me she worked at Wikström Media and that they might need someone who could work with different video projects. That's how I got my foot in the door and I'm very grateful for the chance I got thanks to Natalie!
It is the great colleagues and the incredible connection we have, as well as our open work environment where we are all able to be our ourselves. That my job is extremely creative and varied doesn't hurt, either!
My secret superpower at work is secret!
There are so many different parts of my profession that you have to constantly study and develop, I want to be better at everything I do. You never stop learning!
Taking breaks from the screen and rising between hours of work, stretching and moving around so neither the body nor the imagination gets too stiff. Yes, and COFFEE, of course!
I think you create fun memories almost every day. I am particularly touched by small, funny, moments that occur with colleagues and collaborators during recordings. I especially enjoy the times when it clicks and you feel that everything is exactly on track. But also, the times when it is just blooper after blooper – then the teamwork is the most fun!
In Video and editing you work on your own or on a team with everything from script to technical execution. A good plan guarantees you can produce high quality material and the plan is there as support throughout the project, even after filming when you sit and edit the material.
My friends think I can film videos and then edit them to make them ready for publication. In addition, they understand video content must be planned to the last detail. They have clearly hit the nail on the head.
It was a situation of wanting to pursue a career in an interesting and challenging company. When I was looking for a job that would suit my calling, I did my research and the more I found out about different companies, it was clear Wikström Media Oy was the most interesting. Naturally, the company's strong growth and the fact that they offer video production were factors. Among other things!
I am already convinced by the challenges and responsibilities I have been given. The work and the tasks are such a good fit with what I want to be doing. This would already be enough, but the positive company culture makes me even more loyal.
As my colleague says, "I'm a superhero, and WM is my planet." I couldn't list all the smaller ones, but let me say that I succeed in listening to a significant amount of Swedish without having to translate it and even accomplish other things at the same time, not bad for this Finnish-speaker! I want to be the one who dares to fail. Who strives to be better on his planet every day. You know, I may have succeeded in that.
Along with my Swedish skills, I want to continue to develop my abilities to understand the customer better all the time and to collaborate more effectively with the team here at WM.
I've read about many things to improve focus and, for me, the most effective things are to leave the phone far enough away, to practice positive thinking, and to be sure to avoid tension building-up in my body by stretching and walking around at regular intervals.
Although I'm fairly new here, I have already collected some fond memories. For example, I am affectionately known as the "porridge man" as I eat porridge at work almost every day….well, at least until now.
My job is to be creative. I write everything from texts to websites and brochures to scripts for both video and podcasts. I formulate strategies, create publications, recruitment ads, and press releases.
That I just sit on Facebook and Instagram all day and write, haha!
Being able to work creatively and with language is a fairly narrow niche to find work in, especially in Swedish, in Finland. Imagine my surprise when an ad showed up in my feed, about exactly this, and located in little Jakobstad where I live, no less. If you get the chance, you have to take it!
The team of professionals who both inspire and complement me, as well as the creative atmosphere that inspires all of us to think harder and do better every day. That we all also have the room and the opportunity to develop both professionally but also as individuals.
My insatiable curiosity. I am genuinely interested in most things. If someone tells me about their business with passion or empathy, I am completely hooked and want to delve further into the subject afterward!
Everything! The interesting thing about life is that you can never stop learning. Being able to constantly develop and becoming better at things keeps me motivated.
I rarely listen to music when I work, it can interfere with my creative flow. But, if my thoughts are ever scattered, I can put on calming music with sounds of the sea on my headphones. Two hours of waves and light piano music allows me to focus entirely on the text I have in front of me.
Everyday life in the office. There is always something going on in a creative team!
