Everybody’s favourite Finn Rami Niemi has scored some cool commissions in his time, drawing in his consistently witty style for clients like Bloomberg Businessweek, New York Magazine and Google – all the big ones. His recent series for the Mr Porter journal, in which he drew the people you’ll meet at the gym, might be one of the neatest yet. Including “The Strong Man,” “The Jock Strap” and “The New Leafer” among others, the series is a great example of what good art direction and a sweet commission can be in the right hands.
