“Finland is a great place for immersing successful designers, maybe because of its lack of beaches and good surfing spots! Well, at least the long winters provide us with ample time to spend indoors brooding over designs and plans and ideas. There is a long history of functional and rather minimalist design in Finland, but where does the creative energy stem from? I have to admit that that still remains somewhat of a mystery to me.”
Established in 2010 by Henrik Axlund and Petri Ruikka, Woland is an art and design studio working extensively on motion graphics and visual design for stages. It is also involved in electronic and media art cultures through education. The studio produces innovative visual output with experimental visual compositions and audio-visual synthesis, often tied integrally to a soundtrack.
