In the first illustration I capture the atmosphere at the Helsinki port area. It is known for its industrial cranes, ferries and openness to the people. My intention was to use bright and contrast ridden colors which reflect freshness and clarity so common for the Nordic region.
The other two illustrations are of two people who live in Helsinki, Finland. Their emotions and setup is intended to echo simplicity. It is common in Scandinavia to follow clean, simple and functional style.
