Rainer Nygård "Diablo"
Jarno is a reliable guy and he has done excellent job with both our diabloperkele.com and Myspace sites. He is not good only graphic-wise but also fast to react if we need to change something.
Let the beer and metal flow!
Ewo Pohjola "King Foo Entertainment"
Both Hypocrisy and PAIN are really happy with KAAMOS site design & webmastering, strongly recommended!
Ville Friman "Insomnium"
Jarno designed our website and artwork for our second full length "The Day it All Came Down". At that time we had loose concept story going through the whole album. Jarno succeeded to captivate all the sidelines of this story by portraying every song individually with magnificent designs.
Great piece of work where the diversity of music meets the diversity of digital art!
Tuomas Saukkonen "Before the Dawn" "Black Sun Aeon" "Routasielu"
Tight schedules, top professional quality, fast updates, you name it. Nothing that Jarno can´t handle! The man for (every) job!
Heikki Malmberg "Halfway House Music Production" "Diablo"
If you want a job done well, Jarno offers you blue-ribbon quality and service. I was introduced to his work when he designed Diablo’s website and MySpace pages. When it was time to start working on my company’s website, I instantly knew whom to turn to. For the website, he made a cool layout with absolute respect to the ideas that I presented to him. And then he topped himself by making my company’s MySpace page look almost the same as the main website.
Great work by a great guy!
David E. Gehlke "Crown the Lost"
Jarno has not only provided top-notch designs and artwork for us since 2006, but he's also maintained our website on a regular basis. You would think the fact he's based out of Finland and we're in the US would pose a problem, but it hasn't – he's always on top of things. Whenever we need to have something ready for a deadline, Jarno has everything ready to go and most importantly, his designs blow us away. The amount of compliments we've received towards our album cover and website is staggering.
Jarno is a total pro."
Santi Fano "Angeldark" "The Stormrider"
Fast fact: Jarno Lahti is one of the most talented and dedicated professionals we've ever known in this business. He's not only a creative mind and an outstanding master of digital wizardry, but also a really cool guy to work with, a man who absolutely understands art and music, who knows what his job is about and who deeply respects the work of the bands he collaborates with.
We've been working with him for years now and and we've always loved the experience. And our albums' artworks just couldn't get any better!
Kai Leikola "Soulfallen"
We contacted Kaamos about the graphics for our second album 'Grave New World'. The decision was an easy one since Jarno's work was already familiar to us from various other Finnish bands and therefore knew what we were getting into. And we had liked what we had seen. Despite that we were on a tight schedule Jarno was immediately interested and the project was launched.
Working with Jarno was easy, fast and extremely professional all the way. Jarno responded to all our comments & wishes and we felt we really got customer service. And of course the results speak for themselves. I think Jarno did an excellent job with the album and the art truly goes hand in hand with music: stirring up the right kinds of gloomy images fit for a global funeral! Apart from our new album Jarno also did our myspace-page which also turned out first-class. We will definitely consider Kaamos for our projects also in the future.
Dave Whitmer "Risingfall"
We came upon www.KAAMOS.com while we were searching for artists to design the album art for "Symphony of Storms". Jarno's artwork was the only art we all agreed would suit our needs. He is incredibly intuitive, and while we gave him mostly free reign on the album design he took our direction and concerns seriously and came out with a product that blew us away. A year and a half after our albums release we continue to receive many compliments about our incredible album design.
Jarno is a true artist and we look forward to working with him again in the future.
Janne Juutinen "Masterstroke"
Jarno did a brilliant job with our "Sleep" CD cover art work. Not only did he create great front and back covers but he also suggested that the booklet could have pics that are connected to the lyrics. It was a good idea and we are very happy with the result.
Grand Mandolin "Darcasis"
When the our album "This World Is Falling" was mastered we started to think of the cover material. After few weeks of wondering we asked for Jarno because we wanted professional work. Exploring Jarnos reference list and gallery it was an easy choice.
Cooperation went well and also changes were made along with our wishes. Result was brilliant! We thank and recommend!
Aleksi Martikainen "Ordog" "Pjor" "Deep Red Lights"
Jarno is reliable and good artworker. Everything went well with our official homepage and with our myspace.
Jarno had a clear vision what we wanted and he made perfect work.
Pasi Kolari "For Selena and Sin"
When we were searching designer for our album, there were many professional to choose from. After we talked with Jarno, decision was easy. Coherent visions, quality work and fast service, because of those we will get our artwork from Jarno also in the future.
Chad Denslow "Aenigmata" "Merging With Machines"
As a young band completing our first release "Alchemy This Night", we searched for an elite artist with whom we felt could capture our sensibilities. Admiring his work from half a world away, we were hopeful he would be available for our project and luckily he was.
Jarno has a stunning mastery of dark fantasy art and is second to none. He has the uncanny ability to translate music and lyric into graphical design. He was very easy to work with, prompt, and very responsive to our requests. We look forward to working with him in the future.
Ville Lamminaho "Noumena"
We had the pleasure of working with Jarno with the cover art for our album "Absence". In terms of digital art, Jarno is in my opinion definitely one of the best. His works are detailed, haunting and beautiful. Working with Jarno was very smooth, he got the grasp of our vision immediately, and fine tuned the artwork according to our wishes. The quality of the artwork is excellent throughout the booklet, not just on the front cover.
If we ever seek a fine piece of digital art for our album cover in the future, Jarno will be the first person to contact.
Tobbe "The Awesome Machine"
Jarno did the cover for the last record ever by The Awesome Machine titled "the soul of a thousand years". We wanted a dark, doomy feeling with some kind of hidden message and Jarno managed to create a cover that really says it all about the music. Heavy, dark and doomy! He was great to work with and responded quick and accurate to our comments and wishes. We recommend you to take a look, especially at the LP version, great stuff!
Joonas Paananen "Reprisal Scars"
In search for cover artist for our EP Dead End Road, on one drunken night we stumbled upon to www.kaamos.com. We contacted Jarno and he agreed to design the covers for the EP and so our co-operation began. When the time was right to start recording the full length album, we simply had no other alternatives than Jarno to take care of the layout. On designing the EP Jarno had a clear vision how to merge images with music and he took this even further on the album.
On top of this all he is a really laid back down to earth beer drinking guy and we will surely continue our endeavors in the future.
A while ago I was surfing around, looking for something new to fresh up our homepages and MySpace profile. I found myself at website of Kaamos and was really impressed by his work. Not any sec to waste, I had a contact him by email. I asked an offer to build up my attention to make something new and simple for SINAMOREs websites. About in two weeks everything was done in very professional way and the whole band was really pleased about it.
There wasn’t any reason to be concerned during the whole process, so I truly recommend KAAMOS for everyone, who needs help to build simple and great looking websites by professional way!
Nathan Loveless "Downstream"
Thank you so much for your cooperation with our latest project. This is the second album artwork that you have done for us and we have been extremely pleased with every aspect of working with you. Your turnaround time is incredible and well the artwork speaks for itself. Don't get famous yet though because we want more artwork done for our upcoming albums.
Jay Ray "Inhale"
I was looking for people who could make total change for our Myspace site. Because we wanted myspace site that will make very good reaction when people opens our site for a first time. Then Jarno contact me and asked if he could take this work. I accepted that. Because Kaamos work assured me right away!
Now our myspace site has very professional look. And many many people say
Timo Aspiala "Iconofear"
I think a friend recommended Jarno, when we were searching for an artist for our cover. When I browsed through his artwork on his website, there was no doubt he was the man! It wasn't hard to convince the other guys from our band. Working with Jarno was very smooth. He had a pretty good idea for the first draft, and the second one was even better. We were very satisfied with the result.
We'll be using Jarno's services again, that's for sure!
Working with Jarno was great: we gave him carte blanche and he completely caught the essence of our music. He created a very simple image, dark and poetic, different from most of the metal covers. Everybody told us that it was perfect for “Tides”.
Mika Tanttu "Kill The Romance"
Our MySpace page was longtime without the right direction. I searched Internet and found this guy called Jarno from Kaamos design. I checked some of his previous works and I became instantly convinced that hes the right man for us. We wanted something simple and elegant without a lot of different objects. I had some ideas and a one picture to show what I had thought.
Jarno came with this really classy looking layout which gives justice for the right elements. Work was really professional and fast, and I guess its needless to say that we are more than happy about our brand new MySpace page.
Riku Kettunen "Weeping Daemon"
When we were looking artist to desing the graphics to our second demo "Scars In My Heart" we started to process shitload of records and websites. When we run into kaamos.com we were stunning by Jarno's artworks. We contacted him and after short planning talks he was ready to start the work. Everything went smootly,in schedule and after couple of changes everything was ready.
Jarno also did excellent work with our Myspace sites and we look forward to work with him again in near future.
Jarkko "Lokosa" "Sinetti"
We've harassed Kaamos with two different bands. At one time Jarno webmastered a site for Sinetti, and made a few posters on the side. When the band broke up, the biggest concern was the closing of the website! Later Lokosa made an order for EP cover like "Do you have anything for us?". At few moments Jarno hits us with a picture that speaks more than those five songs from 'Minä lupaan' -EP.
You can really count on Jarno's vision, and what's most important, collaboration is great! We recommend. We play music, Jarno draws it.
Mikael Ruoho "Routakehä" "Sydäntalvi"
It was the end of the year 2009, when we first turned to Jarno and asked if he could do the official Routakehä website, and update our myspace design. I had previously seen some of Jarnos works that I liked, so we decided to ask if he could also work for us. At first we were worried, that the works of a professional like Jarno could cost too much for an independent band like us. But we were positively surprised to find out, that even our budget was enough.
When it was time to release our new EP, we asked for Jarnos help again. This time he modified our EP cover, made the booklet, designed our new logo and also designed and printed our new stickers. I'm beginning to believe, that there is no such graphic job that Jarno couldn't handle fast, with good price and excellent quality. This is the reason why we will certainly use Jarnos works in the future!
