Nordic Spirits is an eclectic collection of stories from the north. From clandestine insect farmers to scientists who are changing the world with biodegradable packaging, it portrays the folly and the brilliance that hide in the north. Created in less than two months, its beauty lies in its variety, the agility of its birthing process and the curiosity it captured; our communal will to seek obscure stories and interesting people. Because of the freedom granted by the client to the team, the result is a celebration of Nordic spirit. Nordic Spirits is one of my favourite projects to date. Having such a strong influence on both the ideation and creation process was unmatched.

Sliding down the icy slope, Daniel Palillo is the antithesis of the cliché of the pretentious fashion designer-turned-painter.
