Who are we?

We are DEED Creative – a Helsinki-based production company specializing in film and photography, offering services for visual needs with a diverse approach. 

The company was founded in 2020 by an active duo, Jaakko Jylhä and Ville Mäkeläinen, long time friends and partners from previous mutual projects. The two form a strong foundation for the company’s operations in both creative and operational sense: Jylhä and Mäkeläinen comprehensively master the fields of directing, filming, post-processing and graphic work – not to mention excellent producing skills. On most projects, DEED also employs professionals from different fields of expertise when needed.

DEED Creative was founded out of passion for everything visual: The hearts of both founders lie for film, photography as well as art and culture in general. In addition to cultural spirit, our working emphasizes on reliability, energetic entrepreneurial spirit, efficient communication and a strong commercial insight. You can get a taste of our style and artistic vision by visiting the Works section where we present the selected projects in which we have been honored to be involved.

We live to do great things in the name of DEED and we give a one hundred percent for our every customer. We offer our best expertise and insight, regardless of the size of your operations and your communication needs.

What do we do?

Creativity, efficiency and reliability. These are the foundations of our work. At the heart of our operations always lies the customer and their needs: with us, you can easily achieve the goals you are aiming for with your visual communications whether your goal is artistic, commercial or something in between.

We take care of all the phases of the projects from start to finish. We always gather the most talented and suitable professionals for each project to achieve the best result.

We tailor the right service package for each customer, taking into account their resources and needs. Our goal is to help you brighten your message, express yourself and your operations in all visual platforms creatively and effectively.

In addition to our excellent track record, we guarantee a smooth project management that combines accuracy and clarity in all steps including communication, workflow and budgeting. Our practical work is always based on a standardized three-part operating model presented in this page.

How do we do it?



The middle stage is the actual production part of the project: we produce, direct, shoot and post-process. In this phase, the well done pre-production is emphasized when the carefully polished idea is put into action and produced to the final product.


At the end of the project, we deliver the finished product to the customer and make the necessary changes or final touches to the final product to ensure the desired result. Our goal is to build long-term and fruitful relationships with our customers, so we also carefully invest in follow-up and after-marketing.
