Sanna Annukka: The Fir Tree


(Photo via Print & Pattern)

Sanna Annukka is a designer and printmaker who draws her inspiration from the Finnish landscape and, as a result, creates very organic looking patterns and prints. Although she is currently working as a designer for Marimekko, she was still able to find the time to illustrate a Hans Christian Anderson classic, The Fir Tree. Annukka's designs are beautifully done, and remind me of a winter fire (okay, that's admittedly cheesy, but seriously, I dare you to look at these illustrations and not feel cozy).





Like the illustrations in the book? Check out this video that highlights Annukka's creative process while also showcasing some of her designs for Marimekko:

I want to like, wrap myself in those blankets and go build a wooden canoe now. NATURE! While I will more than likely only be wrapping myself in blankets to sit on the couch and watch Netflix, Annukka's designs can help us all feel a little bit closer to nature. -Katie
