In the words of the artist:

The four seasons makes Finland very special for me. Thus my posters depicts spring and autumn (the other one will be published at a later date) when trees and bushes are naked and build graphic patterns in black and grey.

I made a series of ”Odd Birds” among other things when starting my career as an illustrator. Every now and then I find Finland to be full of somewhat odd characters and therefore it was only natural that my posters are inhabited by slightly strange and melancholic birds.

Surely travel posters can’t simply remain a cry from the past?

Absolutely not. We live in a completely visual world where the picture is stronger than ever. That’s why the following question hit us: How would contemporary artists depict Finland of today?

We could not let that thought go, so since 2016 we continuously arrange international travel poster contests and we’ve also asked specific graphic designers and artists to create new Finnish travel posters for us.

So now Finland once again attracts travellers with glamour and cries of joy from paradise.
With the help of the travel poster!
