Shillington Book Club: From Scandinavia by Counter-Print

From Scandinavia
Author/Publisher: Counter-Print

It’s no secret that Scandinavia is a travel hot-spot for most design enthusiasts out there. There really is no better place for an aesthetically inspiring city break—whether it’s to the forward-thinking Copenhagen, effortlessly cool Stockholm, edgy Oslo or hidden gem of Helsinki.

The one thing that binds all of these places together is the continuous stream of enlightening and impactful design work produced by agencies across the Scandinavian cities; so when I discovered this amazing book from Counter-Print I was overjoyed! ‘From Scandinavia’ does as expected, lists a series of projects from some of the region’s best design agencies, and it doesn’t disappoint.

From packaging for Tove Jansson’s Moomins to a re-design of convenience pitstop 7-Eleven, there’s a trove of Scandi design gold amongst the pages of this book.

Expect mentions from popular studios HeyDays, Bond and Snask alongside the well renowned BVD and Stockholm Design Lab. I’d thoroughly recommend this book to designers hoping to learn more about Scandinavian design, or hoping to see great examples of sophisticated, well considered branding, packaging and identity work.
