Johanna Knaapi’s love for animation was instilled in her through learning to speak English by watching Cartoon Network in Finland as a child. This love has been carried through to her role with us as a Producer. 

Before graduating with honours from her animation degree, Johanna was creating live-action projects in Finland. Now at Axis Studios, she’s been an integral part of a range of projects, from prerendered animated series to realtime cinematics, with clients including Riot Games, Netflix, and Microsoft.

As a Producer, Johanna plans, executes and oversees the scope within the highest levels of any given project, making sure everything runs smoothly and is communicated between the client and the core team. She is always ready for a challenge, taking on spectacular projects in tandem with the studio’s continual growth.
