Remember the Nordic Design Lunch we shared with you a few days ago? The event we held on the light ship Vinga together with our wonderful partners over at Design Forum Finland?

Here are the live illustrations from the lunch, cooked up by the super talented Finnish illustrator Eili-Kaija Kuusniemi. As the event went on, we kept hanging the drawings on clothes lines with clothes pegs to decorate the ship.

Eili-Kaija graduated from the The Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture in Finland with an MA in Graphic Design.

She works with ink, pencil and watercolors but often finishes her images digitally. Her work has appeared internationally in corporate communications, advertising, magazines and newspapers. Her clients include Fazer, Random House and WSOY.

These illustrations were all created on the spot at the Design Lunch. So beautiful, don’t you think?

Eili-Kaija lives with her husband, two children and a big white husky in Helsinki.
