In the words of the artist Pekka Kurki:
This is Poster de Luxe! It belongs to our Custom Print series and will be printed individually for you. The poster is printed in Finland on high quality FSC certified matte paper. The latest printing technique with its 12-color system guarantee that the luminosity and fullness of the colour scheme are outstanding, and the poster will last for many generations.
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 every year we 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 – and Hanko – once again attracts travellers with glamour and cries of joy from paradise. With the help of the travel poster!
