My name is Matias Autio. I’m a web designer interested in making the web a more usable, nicer place for people.


Yamaya official website

I worked for one year in Sendai, Japan at one of the biggest retailers of alchohol and imported foods in Japan. One of my tasks was bringing their website to 2020, completely redesigning every aspect of the site and making it mobile-friendly for the first time.

Campaign pages: Glen Moray, Chinese Spirits

Extreme marketing website

I created a website for a B2B marketing campaign. The objective was to make a visually interesting site with the main attention in the four videos available for viewing on the site.

Parasta seuraa website

Campaign site for B2B marketing. The landing page has a video background and the main selling points in three short segments.

Banner ads for

For the launch of a new video service,, I created dynamically changing and animating banner advertisements. The content, currently featured tv shows and series, come from the service’s front page. The images are then stylized automatically to provide a visually interesting and always changing look.

Banner designs

Banner designs for various projects I worked on for MTV. Banners were created in HTML with JavaScript and CSS for animations.


I was tasked to create animations with the feeling of summer for social media usage. I opted for a simple and bold visual style using only the brand colour red and white. The animations were very well received by the client.


Various infographics created for use in social media.

Graphic design

Various images for social media usage etc.

Print Ad

I created a print ad for MTV’s fall 2018 B2B campaign. I did everything from start to finish: layout, photography, compositing and typography. It was published in three business-related print magazines.


In addition to web design work, photography is my passion. I photographed portraits while working for Valve.
