Black & white dollhouse by artist Janine Rewell

Janine Rewell is a Helsinki-based freelancing illustrator and graphic designer. She has studied illustration and graphic design in University of Art and Design Helsinki (UIAH, Finland) and Rhode Island School of Design (RISD, United States). Rewell has won several awards for her work, including a bronze Design Lion at the 2009 Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival. Her works have appeared for example in avertisements, product packaging, interior designs, book covers, magazines and posters. Rewell's clients are Nokia, Qatar Airways, Finlandia Vodka, Marimekko, just to name a few. As an illustrator she’s represented by illustration agency AGENT PEKKA. Janine’s computer-based vector style combines basic geometrical forms with small decorative elements. Inspired by by the geographical location of Finland, her illustrations represent an original mix of Scandinavian design and Slavic folk art. In the photo you can see her modern, black & white dollhouse, created for personal use, with imagery reminiscent of playing card illustrations. It looks incredible! Proof that a dollhouse does not have to be stuffy or old-styled to be appreciated!
