Head North — The True Taste of Nordic Design is a fresh collection that draws from the highly respected history of “Scandinavian design” to present contemporary graphic design from five Northern countries: Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden.
Characterized by simple elegance, careful use of vibrant colors and space, minimalism, and functionality, Nordic design is also recognized by its heavy application of typography and illustration.
The designers featured are at the vanguard of Nordic design, bucking trends and demonstrating that design can be simple but sophisticated, lovely but not naïve, and cool yet engaging.
