#36daysoftype 2017 was fun! It’s a design / illustration challenge, where there’s a letter or a number for every day during the challenge period. Here are my letters. Diamonds, girls, french-kissing snakes, legs, wheel of fortune, mountains to climb, moon, cartwheels, kangaroos.. And even one of my favorite song of all times, “Twilight driving” (check it out!).
And my numbers:
And there’s always those you love more than others…
So, due to the lightest time of the year in Finland, I decided to look back to the darkest time of the year: December and Christmas..
I took part in a postal stamp competition a few months back. The idea was to design a postal stamp for Christmas. Didn’t win it, but it was great I got time carved out to dig into postal stamp designing. Hope I get to design more of them some day! Here’s two of my entries, the favorite ones, and as you can see – they’re a couple… The scenery of the stamp is from Helsinki, Pohjoisranta (I used to run a lot there during winter).
I really liked the stamps that won. The illustrators did a great job!
