Finalist in the ”Come to Satakunta” poster contest, 2016!

In the words of the artist:

I got the inspiration for this poster from a storm that surprised us at the beach of Yyteri in Pori on the west coast of Finland. We had ”ordered” sunny and hot weather for our day off, but ended up having more fun as we were battered by the wind.

So, 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!
