Vilma Iivonen

In the words of the artist:

I’m a Turku-based freelance illustrator and graphic designer in Finland with a bachelors degree in advertising. Inspiration is everywhere for me but mid-century modern has a big influence on me as well as the shapes, gradients and textures you can find in the nature. A friend of mine tipped me off about the contest and got me excited for the challenge since I adore Nordic nature as well as minimalist and clever posters. My goal for this poster was to trust myself and just create without overthinking too much.
