3rd place, Finnish travel poster of the year, 2021!

In the words of the artist:

I got the idea for my poster from Hanko’s beautiful villas and the beach. I have actually never visited Hanko, but I feel like I got to know the city when I was searching for inspiration for my poster. In my imagination, Hanko is a sunny summer town with old beautiful houses as well as beaches.

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!
