Finalist in the MyFinlandPoster contest 2018!

In the words of the artist:

Since I’m from Lapland myself I just had to take part in the contest. I tried to capture the joy of skating from my childhood: the skating field with big lights hanging above and a blanket of snow all around me. The illustration is mabe with Adobe Illustrator, but I made the sketch with pencils.

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!

Check out over 200 classic Finnish travel posters and read more about all the great Finnish poster artists in the digital version of our book ”Come to Finland” (found in three different editions; in English, French and German). After enjoying the posters a while we believe you are ready to order the real thing: the printed coffee table book.
