    Santtu Mustonen: Flow Festival 2013

Santtu Mustonen's new Flow Festival identity is an explosion of colourful flora

Posted by James Cartwright,

Santtu Mustonen’s visuals for Tsto’s 2011 Flow Festival identity were an absolute belter, his organic forms lending an element of tangible excitement to the event’s print and digital collateral. Two years on he’s back with more, for the 2013 instalment, and they’re looking just as slick as before. This time Santtu seems to be drawing inspiration from plant life, creating vibrant flora with his trademark combination of painterly skill and digital software. The colours exploding from these images are an intense visual treat with just the right amount of modern psychedelia to be perfect for Helsinki’s biggest music festival. Also, it’s well worth taking a look at his recent work for Zeit Magazin; similarly brilliant stuff!
