Success at two design fronts

Maigret – Kootut kertomukset / The Most Beautiful Books of the Year 2015.

“True classics deserve a proper setting. The pipe cut in cover calico and its smoke saying “Maigret”: at the same time simple, clear and concentrated. Typesetting in both front and back cover is elegant, typography adds to the reading pleasure throughout.”

Mika Taanila / Ars Fennica 2015 (poster, catalogue and invitation) / 1st prize “Print of the Year” / Antalis Design & Print Awards.

“A work, which power, simplicity and boldness stood out immediately – WOW! A minimalistic, fresh and luscious whole where art remains in the center. The marriage of black, red and white was crucial. A Brilliant choice of materials and the varnished images crowned the whole. Ageless visuality that fits anywhere.”

The Artists’ Association of Finland 150 years

Dog Design designed an identity for The Artists’ Association of Finland: logo, web page and stationary. The layered circles of the logo create an impression of movement – to unite and to transform.

To celebrate the 150th anniversary of The Artists’ Association of Finland, Posti published a stamp collection. We had the honour to design the logo for the anniversary and a stamp collection with the first day cover. The association organised an illustration competition for the artists and the selected illustrations were used as basis of the stamp design.
