Finlandica was commissioned by the Prime Minister’s Office as part of a visual identity for Finland.
On a trajectory informed by Finnish industrial history, Finlandica reflects this facet of Finland. Its strong and compressed shapes embody a traditional virtue in Finnish culture: honest and resilient determination – “Sisu”. Ink traps like cuts from a blunt ax, makes the typeface reliable in small sizes and gives it character in large headlines. Like the Finnhorse it’s a breed suitable both as riding horse and workhorse. In the spirit of “Jokamiehenoikeus” this typeface is Open Source.
