ABOUT

The idea was to create a new kind of forum for young Finnish designers and artists, in a form of an advent calendar. 24 creatives/creative groups were asked to design the inside of a box in their own style and then design the typography for the lid. Participants were instructed to create something three dimensional that would surprise the opener. No other restrictions were given. Featured artists ranged from more recognized to less known names from fields of fine arts, photography and design.

Artists: Sauli Sirviö, Jesse Auersalo, Sherpa, Kasino, Nene Tsuboi, Mikael Kivelä, K.I.Kinnunen, Paavo Lehtonen, Inka Järvinen, Tiina Raitanen, Laura Väinölä, OK Do, Eelovi, Jutta Johansson, Arto Vaverka, Anna Salmisalo, Daniel Palillo, Chris Bolton, Jenni Hiltunen, Lauri Johansson, Antti Ahtiluoto, Tom Holmberg, Lauri Toikka and Noora Niinikoski.
