Lotta Nieminen

I don’t remember where I came across Lotta Nieminen’s work, but as soon as I saw her illustrations I knew I was gonna post about her. In fact, Lotta is getting quite a lot of attention lately as she was chosen as one of Print magazine’s 20 Under 30 which features the best and brightest under the age of 30. She’s a graduate of the University of Art and Design Helsinki and RISD and she’s quite a talented designer as well as an illustrator.

But really it’s her illustrations that got me. Her drawings seem so precise and are filled with slightly offbeat colors and lots of great texture. She’s kind of a blend between Sanna Annukka and Raymond Biesinger, which to me is a huge compliment. I’d love to see more of her illustrations all over the place, maybe even a desktop wallpaper?
