It's time to dedicate a post to two favorite Finnish folk inspired artists-designers:
Sanna Annukka and Klaus Haapaniemi. Both work as illustrators with the award winning
graphic design studio and agency Big Active. You are likely to have met them before,
since they have been very busy creating beautiful, magical designs for prints,
fabrics, cards and much more...
Klaus Haapaniemi, throw from his first signature collection
Sanna Annukka for Marimekko
Sanna Annukka, cd packaging for Keane's Under the Iron Sea
Klaus Haapaniemi, Rabbit limited edition letterpress print for Wilkintie
Sanna Annukka, Call of the Cuckoo print
Klaus Haapaniemi, Oravat

Klaus Haapaniemi, Peacocks from his signature collection for Cacharel
I love this warm and friendly Finnish folk vibe, it's just what I needed
to put me in the Christmas spirit... now, I'm ready for some snow!
