Ornamo-TEK dual membership

Ornamo Art and Design Finland and TEK have agreed to a dual membership. This means that members of Ornamo who work as salaried employees in industrial companies or design companies, for example, can be members of both Ornamo and TEK simultaneously.

Ornamo members who are studying at Aalto University’s School of Arts, Design and Architecture, University of Lapland’s Faculty of Art and Design or at a university of applied sciences may also become student members of TEK.

TEK promotes the professional interests of designers in salaried positions in cooperation with YTN and Akava. TEK handles the promotion of interests with regard to the job market and provides services and benefits such as legal counselling and career guidance. Ornamo continues to promote the interests of its members in professional and ideological matters. Both associations are jointly responsible for the development of membership benefits and services for their dual members.


If you wish to become an Ornamo-TEK dual member, contact Ornamo’s office: office(ät)ornamo.fi, tel. +358 9 68777 40.

Once Ornamo has notified TEK of your dual membership, you can update your member information in TEK’s member portal.

If you are a student member of Ornamo, read more about TEK’s student activities. You can become a student member of TEK by contacting Ornamo’s office (contact information listed above).


Ornamo-TEK dual members receive the same benefits and services as full members of TEK with the exception of unemployment fund membership and Alma Talent’s magazine package. Ornamo-TEK dual members can join an unemployment fund directly via Ornamo.

  • Alma Talent offers Ornamo-TEK dual members all of their professional magazines (Tekniikka& Talous, Talouselämä, Metallitekniikka, Tietoviikko, Mikrobitti, Markkinointi & Mainonta, Fakta, Arvopaperi and Tekniikan historia) at a 40 % membership discount negotiated by TEK.


TEK’s membership fee for Ornamo members is 157 euros. If the member works outside of the Nordic Countries, TEK’s annual membership fee is 51 euros. The membership fees will be invoiced by Ornamo.​
