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

The artist presents her poster:

My design VISIT OSTROBOTHNIA highlights the Ostrobothnian countryside. The sea, the croplands, the woods and the endless skies around the old magnificent grey barns.

A scenery that makes you calm.

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!
