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.

Head North showcases all genres of design, from graphic design, printed books, album covers, posters, product design, fashion, and promotional design to typographic and environmental design. If you're in need of inspiration, Head North! — and discover one of the largest epicenters of design in the world, a region abundant with creativity in every realm of design and art.
