Few years ago we introduced the illustration work of Finnish artist Pietari Posti. Since then, his style changed a bit by simplifying his drawings down to clean lines and crisp, bold shapes. Love his new Canderel illustrations below!
His experience in graphic design from studying the subject in Lahti, Finland, is evident in his illustrative compositions. Small editorial works are arranged with the eye of a designer, and typography plays a large part in the posters, book covers and identities he is commissioned to create.
What Pietari’s work has is a sense of tradition seeped into a modern aesthetic, something that countless brands are looking to have a piece of in terms of heritage and timelessness. Pietari now operates Studio Posti from Barcelona, churning out work for magazines and brands worldwide and featuring in a number of illustration and design books.
“Pietari’s work exhibits a profound understanding of the value of well balanced composition; using colour, varying line thickness, shape and tone to create congruent artwork.”
