Nothern Soul

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 ActiveYou are likely to have met them before, 
since they have been very busy creating beautiful, magical designs for prints, 
fabrics, cards and much more...

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!
