Who I am

Rauno Tolonen

I am the founder and main operator of the Black-not-Red Creative. I’ve got 15+ years of experience of creating applications and services for mobile devices. A few years back I left the corporate world with an urge to create something on my own in web business, design and development.

I graduated with honors from Web Development and Interactive Design program by Vancouver Institute of Media Arts (one of top design schools in the world). Since that I’ve helped people and businesses to build websites that will support and boost their businesses.

I am originally from Finland, but for last 10 years I have enjoyed the more moderate climate and amazing outdoor activity opportunities of Vancouver, Canada.

What people say

Rauno is very easy-going, professional and efficient - in short, great person to work with. He is very good listener - he invested a lot of time in the beginning to listen to my ideas and visions, making sure that he understood what I wanted. This was the key, since I wanted the website to look like me. The whole process is a collaborative effort and I had a sense that Rauno really cared about the outcome. He finished on time and the best part is that the website really looks like me and it is far better that I could have imagined on my own. I warmly recommend Rauno!
