Irma Boom

“The queen of books”, Dutch Irma Boom has designed over 300 books during her 30-year career.  Her courageous and experimental approach challenges accepted norms with regards to both physical design and printed content.

Tereza Ruller (in the featured image) is an Amsterdam-based communications designer, educator and the co-founder of the studio The Rodina. Ruller’s work is based on experimental practices which delve into the strategies of performance art, play and subversion. The Rodina explores virtual environments as spaces for new ideas and aesthetics. It studies how the freedom and playfulness traditionally granted to artists could be available to wider audiences.

Advance tickets for the virtual creative design event organised on 4 March 2021 are now available for purchase here. Helsinki Design Week is one of the event’s partners.
