A Classic vintage Finnair travel poster circa 1958 by Erik Bruun, a noted Finnish graphic designer.

Erik Bruun (born 1926 in Viipuri) is a Finnish graphic designer.

 

Bruun spent his childhood in village of Säiniö on the Karelian isthmus. In the war years his family was forced to move to Helsinki, where he later enrolled in the Central School of Industrial Design. He graduated as a graphics designer in 1950.

 

After graduation, Bruun worked for three years as an exhibition designer and advertisement artist. In 1953 he founded his own design studio, where he produced the most of his work.

 

Bruun's works are diverse and numerous. They include posters, postcards, stamps, and most notably the reverse sides of the last ever series of the Finnish Markka banknote series from year 1986.

 

In his work, Bruun mostly features the Finnish nature in all its richness and beauty. Particularly prominent motives include the marine eagle, the Saimaa seal and the bear. The Saimaa seal is the symbol of the Finnish nature preservation association, whose logo Bruun designed.
