About the artwork
Finnish Travel Poster of the year, 2020, 3rd place!
The artist presents her artwork:
My poster was inspired by autumn walks on the seashores of the Töölö neighborhood where the amazing Sibelius monument is located. The poster combines vector illustrations with vintage paper textures.
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 annually arrange an international travel poster contest for different regions in Finland, 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!
About the product
They say that the forest is the green gold of Finland. That’s why we have wooden versions of our postcards. They are, naturally enough, printed in Finland – on Finnish birch plywood.
Best of all: You can use them as ordinary postcards! Thickness: 3 mm.
These are prints that stand the test of time. Every product is unique – it’s printed on real wood! So please note: variations in colour and structure might appear.
